Pop singer Pink is the January cover girl for Women's Health. In the issue, which hits newsstands Tuesday, she opens up about her relationship with motorcross racer Carey Hart, her lip-synching competition, and how hard she works to look that good. If any of you have seen Pink perform lately, I'm sure you'll back me up when I say that she looks like she's in the best shape of her life. And even though she recently lost 20 pounds and is currently touring, the pop star hasn't strayed from her fitness routine! She said:
- On her "man abs": "My man abs? They’re pretty full-on. It’s like that D’Angelo video [for "How Does It Feel"]; he’s got that V. I get a lot of flak for it. That’s where the masculine thing comes in, people saying it’s not normal for a girl to have [those]. But I’m OK with it. I think it’s because I was a gymnast for eight years, from ages 4 to 12. My body was made before my bones were fully grown. Gymnasts are short, stocky, muscular powerhouses."
To find out what else Pink said about keeping fit,
- How she stays fit on the road:"Ever hear of P90X? My brother and his wife are both in the Air Force; they do marathons and triathlons. I went [to visit them and she’s doing P90X]. I couldn’t keep up with her — and she’d just had her first baby four weeks ago. I was like, This is bullshit! I will perfect this thing! So usually, I wake up and do an hour of cardio, then an hour of P90X or yoga, then a half-hour of warm-up [during show rehearsal]. I do that six days a week.”
- Her day off: I try to make it a show day so I’m still getting cardio. I have to be able to run up those stairs as many times as I do and be able to sing at the same time. I’m an asthmatic. I have to be on that treadmill singing to get my lungs right."
- Why she likes working out: "I like results. I like feeling strong. It keeps my mental floor higher."
- Does she have a trainer?: "No. I don’t work well with trainers. [Air quotes] 'Does not work well with others.'"
- She knows she’s a 10, right?: "No, no, no! I feel like a seven and a half! I’m not going to lie and tell you when I look in the mirror there’s nothing I don’t want to fix. If they figure out how to stretch me and make me a little bit taller, then maybe I’ll get upwards of eight."
