Pink slams trend of naked selfies
The ‘So What’ hitmaker has slammed the trend of posing nude on social media - made popular by the likes of reality star Kim Kardashian West.
Pink doesn’t think naked selfies are “empowering” and insists they have nothing to do with promoting feminism.
The So What hitmaker has slammed the trend of posing nude on social media - made popular by the likes of reality star Kim Kardashian West - and whilst she “respects” other people’s decision, she doesn’t think posing nude in your bathroom teaches anyone to take you seriously.
She said: “I don’t wish anybody ill and I respect everybody’s hustle. I’ve never pretended to be perfect and I’ve never said I haven’t taken my clothes off in photographs myself. But naked selfies in a bathroom don’t boost your self-esteem and I just think there needs to be some voices who are dissenting because right now that’s the majority.
“The majority want to take their clothes off, take pictures in the bathroom and post it on Instagram or Snapchat or whatever. It’s not empowering. You’re not being good at anything. Nobody respects that. They might envy it, they might be jealous of it, they might wanna f--k you. But they don’t respect you. There’s nothing wrong with being sexy or in charge of your own body. But let’s all ask ourselves what are we really doing it for because if that’s feminism...? Pfft. Well, it’s not what it used to be.”
And the 38-year-old singer - who has six-year-old daughter Willow Sage and nine-month-old son Jameson Moon with her husband Carey Hart - feels becoming a mother has made her more “thoughtful”.
She added to The Sun’s Fabulous magazine: “I didn’t used to be very thoughtful about things. And I think it’s a product of age and being a mom that I consider more now, which makes things more nerve-wracking. Because, believe me, it’s a lot easier to just blow s**t up and keep moving.”
