Recently the immensely talented music artist Pink talks about why she has always been accepting of differing sexuality. Pink makes note that this is a result of her experiences growing up and when she was just starting out in the music business:
The kind of world I live in and lived in was this sort of very open one. I was like a club kid. I was a little candy raver, and I am the kind of person that sucks the marrow out of the bones of life. Those days were really crazy and lots of all-nighters. And with a bunch of other kids that were trying to find themselves and have a good time doing it and get out from under their parents — and there was a lot of ecstasy. And as far as I’m concerned, when you’re on ecstasy there’s no such thing as definable sexuality. There is just love.
I loved my little girlfriends and we kissed and we had a great time and we held hands. 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.”
Pink clarifies that the incident in the tabloid was not because she was afraid of labels, but rather that she has always been open about her sexuality and was upset that the story was fabricated. She goes on to say that in the end, she doesn’t place judgement and welcomes open-mindedness to all including:
“Different thought processes and sexualities…as long as everybody in the group is open-minded and doesn’t judge anybody else, it’s a lovely place to be—it’s how the whole world should be.”
She is so down to Earth and humble about where she comes from. A true class act.
