Stronger than ever! Pink became real what led to her weight gain during the COVID-19 pandemic — and how she managed to shed the pounds before touring.

“Having breaks is good for my voice. Not so good for the body,” said Pink, 43 Variety in an interview published on Wednesday, February 15. “Especially during COVID – I gained 36 pounds. All I did was make sourdough and then eat the sourdough. And then I not only had the hip surgery, but also had a double disc replacement in my neck.

The “Perfect” singer – who is gearing up for a world tour following the release of her ninth studio album, Confidence traplater this month – revealed that despite her setback, she bounced back and is ready to hit the road.

“Now I’m the bionic woman. I’ve lost those 36 pounds and I’m stronger than I’ve ever been in my life. And I’m ready to go, and I’m ready to get out of here. I’ve been home too long,’ she explained.

Pink isn’t the only member of her family to deal with health issues in recent years. Earlier this month, the husband of the Grammy winner, Carey Hartshared that he needed a catheter in his chest to fight off an infection.

“Well this sucks ?. Found out a few days before Christmas that I have an infection in some old hardware in my body,” the pro biker, 47, shared via Instagram at the time. “After straining my brain over the holidays, I got this tunneled catheter in my chest. Now I have to inject antibiotics for the next 41 days to knock this sucker out.

Weeks before he got the infection, Hart was in the hospital for surgery on his neck to fuse vertebrae to correct a problem with his joints.

The BMX rider is no stranger to injuries thanks to his career – which meant that when Pink underwent her own procedures in November 2021, he knew exactly how to support her.

“Being married to an athlete who has had hundreds of surgeries, I meet some of the best doctors in the world. I am never completely grateful. It was a brutal first week full of tears and pain from depression, sores from meds and constant fever, but my @hartluck got me through it,” the “So What” artist wrote via Instagram post-surgery. “(Nobody recovers from surgery like him. He’s not real.)”

She continued, “He brought me coffee in the shower, lugged my 100lb CPM contraptions everywhere I went, dried my tears, cooked me oatmeal, kept track of my meds, gave me my phone charger, plugged in my compression machines, took my temp, made the bed and talked me off the ledge,” she noted. “I’ve already figured out some tricks on these crutches that I’ve been walking on for six weeks… yada yada yada….”

Pink and Hart tied the knot in 2006 before briefly calling it quits in 2008. The couple finally reconciled in February 2010 and welcomed daughter Willow a year later. Son Jameson joined the family in 2016.

When it comes to her new album, the “Just Like a Pill” singer took inspiration from all the obstacles she’s overcome in recent years, including the passing of her father in August 2021 and both of her children who had serious cases of COVID-19. 19 incurred. The result was a slowly building opening number about death and the afterlife.

I feel like we are all in this constant state of being overwhelmed, which is why we put our feelings away so we can get through a day. I wanted to find a way back to the truth and the authentic feelings,” she said Variety on Tuesday. “So opening the album with that, instead of ‘Hey, let’s make each other easier’, it’s like ‘No, no. Sit down. I want to talk to you. We’re going to cut all the bullshit out and have a Ctranslation.’ That’s how I am as a person. If you ask me how I am, how much time do you have? So ‘When I Get There’ as an album opener was my way of saying, ‘Let’s talk about real stuff.’”

Known for her outspoken nature, Pink has often been open about her struggles, especially when it comes to motherhood. After being honored with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard award at MTV’s VMAs in August 2017, the Pennsylvania native used her acceptance speech as an opportunity to share what she did when daughter Willow called herself “the ugliest girl I know.”

“I didn’t say anything, and instead I went home and made her a PowerPoint presentation,” Pink told the audience. “And in that presentation were androgynous rock stars and artists who live their truth, probably get ridiculed every day of their lives, and go ahead and wave their flag and inspire the rest of us. … We don’t change. We take the gravel in the shell and we make a pearl. And we help other people change so they can see more kinds of beauty.”
