Pink stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show for the episode that aired yesterday to perform her new single “Walk Me Home” for the first time on live TV.
Before taking the stage to perform Pink sat down to talk to Ellen and said she is done posting photos of her kids after receiving “rude” and “mean-spirited” comments.
The 39-year-old singer said she will no longer share pictures of Willow and Jameson, her 7-year-old daughter and 2-year-old son with Carey Hart, following an incident on Instagram. “I don’t like injustice. I don’t like how brave people are anonymously. And rude, just mean. Mean-spirited.”
Pink received backlash in March after posting a photo of herself with Willow, Jameson and a pelican. People objected to Jameson not wearing a diaper or swim bottoms, despite Pink censoring the picture. She explained:
“I didn’t look at the picture that way. I looked at it from, there was a pelican that flew into our room. It spent two hours with us, which was incredible. . . I have a 2-year-old [who] doesn’t like to wear wet swim diapers and at some point, he took it off. . . People went as far as saying someone should call child services because he didn’t have a diaper on and how dare I... some of the nastiest things. I cried so hard after that because I like to share my family. It’s my proudest moment in my whole life. I’m prouder of my kids than anything I’ve ever done. I won’t share them anymore. I won’t do it. I’m not posting pictures of them anymore.”
Pink said she’s open to constructive criticism but not hateful remarks. Pink re-posted the photo and addressed the incident on Instagram in March after deleting the initial picture with Jameson.
