Pink on the cover Seventeen Magazine Febuary 2009
On how it feels to have “So What” become the break-up anthem of the year and also her first number one song: It feels very confusing. It’s bittersweet. It’s funny, it’s empowering, it’s ‘Screw you,’ it’s all of that. It’s amazing to be number one but it’s ironic that it took [Carey Hart and I] breaking-up to get there. It’s a testament to how often people break-up, because everyone can relate to what I’m saying.
On if she’s over Carey: It’s up and down. You have strong moments and you have weak moments. But it’s not just been devastating - it’s been freedom, too. I told him that I would give him away at his next wedding.
On where her “meanness” comes from: My brother and I fought alot when we were kids. We were very violent. He could always beat me physically but I could always beat him with words. And you learn how to survive by how you are as a kid and can just be really mean. I can cut people down. I don’t like to. I don’t want to be like that anymore.”
