Pink Gets Candid About What’s It’s Like to Tour as a Working Mom: ‘There’s a Reason Moms Don’t Do This’

Pink has always been candid about her experience as a working mother. But behind the flashy costumes and theatrics on stage, Pink revealed that life on the road isn’t all glamour.

The mom-of-two will be wrapping up her Trauma World Tour this month and shared that touring with her two small children feels “f—cking impossible at times” in a recent Billboard cover story.

“There have been many times when I have been sitting in the corner of arena bathrooms crying,” she told the outlet.

She also admitted that she sometimes experiences mom guilt during her hectic tour schedule.

“[I’ve said] to myself, “There’s a reason why women don’t do this, there’s a reason why moms don’t do this,” she said during the interview.

Pink originally started performing when she was just 16. Now, life on the road is quite different with her husband, Carey Hart, and their two children, Willow Sage, 8, and Jameson Moon, 2 ½.

“I just want to always make sure that I’m doing right by them. It’s not a simple puzzle anymore – it’s not just me,” she said.

As her children get older, she admitted that she needs to balance their interests and needs with performing, which can be challenging. Pink has previously stated that she would quit touring if that’s what her children wanted.

“The last couple of months, Willow was over it,” she said. “She wants to be home and do BMX and swim team and gymnastics and all the s— that an 8-year-old wants to do. So she was asking to go home, and that’s when I knew: From here on out, it changes.”
