Pink continues to wow the world not only as a three-time Grammy winner but also a mom who lives most of her life on the road with her family.
Pink spoke on how she raises daughter Willow, 9, and son Jameson, 4, when she is touring along with her husband, Carey Hart, 45.
In her Amazon Prime Video documentary, P!nk: All I Know So Far (which streams on May 21) Pink reveals how she plays the role of mom and also rock-star-goddess during her Beautiful Trauma World Tour, which was the second-highest grossing world tour of all time for a solo female artist.
“There’s not a lot of women headlining stadiums and doing two nights at Wembley Stadium while having a family on the road. [Director Michael Gracey] had never seen a mom changing diapers while having a creative meeting, and just the way that this big life intersects with being a normal, crazy family — there’s something fascinating about that,” Pink reveals.
In the film, Pink reveals how she walks the line when it comes to mom and rockstar.
“I’m always trying to figure out: ‘Am I doing the right thing? Can a woman have it all? What does that even mean?’ And the answer is no, most of the time you can’t, and it feels like you’re climbing Mount Everest,” she says. “But it’s also so magical what I get to do and who I get to be in this life.”
Pink has not only found a balance it seems — but also counsels fellow celebrity parents!
“Touring with kids is impossible — and I did the impossible. For a while there were a lot of other pop stars that were emailing me and calling me for the playbook on how to tour with kids, so I wrote a playbook for other moms,” she says. “You just keep going. I’m just thinking about: ‘Am I raising a kind person? What’s it like to be my kid?’ “
And while Willow and Jameson’s childhood compares starkly to her ER nurse mom and insurance salesman dad in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, Pink has aimed to keep them both rounded.
“Their normal is different: We go on tour and have a ball pit in Mommy’s dressing room. But they are normal kids. Jameson wants to be an astronaut,” she says. “Willow does gymnastics and reads Harry Potter and is convinced she’s going to Hogwarts when she’s 11, and I don’t have the heart to tell her that she’s not.”
Pink says of parenting: “They’re totally weird and joyful, and I’m loving every moment of it, even the hard days are a blessing.”
