Pink credits her father for her high self-esteem.
The 'Just Give Me a Reason' star, who has a two-year-old daughter, Willow, with her husband Cary Hart, is determined to enjoy her life and thinks her family, including her dad Jim Moore, have helped her maintain a healthy attitude and a positive body image.
The 33-year-old star told the October issue of Women's Health magazine: "My dad used to drill it into my head that sometimes you have to stand on the mountain alone. 'You're perfect just the way you are, and I think you're beautiful, and I think, more important, that you're smart and funny and talented.' I just had the right people in my life. And I had points to prove. I liked being different."
The singer's fans also make her feel more empowered.
She said: "I've exorcised so many demons by writing and singing and having shows with all these people who feel the way I do."
Despite being well-known for her toned abs, Pink admits she doesn't think her figure is perfect.
She said: "I would like to be more disciplined, but I just really enjoy food. I have an Italian mind-set when it comes to food and family and festivities. It's like, just enjoy life. Try to eat clean as much as possible. I'd love to be 10 pounds thinner, but it's not in the cards for me. And I'm totally OK with that."
