By the way she looks and acts, singer Pink says she ‘should’ be gay but just isn’t. But her lesbian and bisexual female fans do mean the world to her.
‘They’ve been the most loyal part of what I do,’ she tells The Advocate in an interview out this week. ‘They’ve been my most loyal friends, to be honest. I’ve had a lot of my gay boys around, but my gay girls are my rootstalk. They’re my honesty in an ocean of bullshit.’
Married to motocross champion Carey Hart since 2006, Pink adds: ‘I should be gay by the way that I look and the way that I am. I just happen to not be. But it just makes perfect and complete sense.’
She has had to deal with tabloid stories about her coming out as bisexual which, she says, she never did.
‘I loved my little girlfriends and we kissed and we had a great time and we held hands,’ she says of her younger years. ‘When I first moved to Los Angeles, I was an honorary lesbian of Los Angeles. I wasn’t gay, but all my girlfriends were. So no, it wasn’t a big deal for me, but when [a tabloid] comes out and says, I just said I was bisexual, it’s like what? That wasn’t my truth, and I like truth. I like absolute truth.’
