Pink is not here for body-shamingor ageism. After someone commented on a photo that she 鈥渓ooks so old that [she] should be named Purple instead,鈥 the singer clapped back with a powerful response about her thoughts on aging.

鈥淲ell, there are a few people left in the world that choose to age naturally. And I鈥檝e earned every f*cking minute of my 38 years,鈥 she tweeted. 鈥淗ow you looking though? Cause I never heard of ya til you put my name in your mouth. I shall call you little purple troll.鈥

It was her second tweet, though, that really drove the message home. 鈥淚 am of the mindset that it鈥檚 a blessing to grow old,鈥 she wrote. 鈥淭hat if your face has lines around your eyes and mouth it means you鈥檝e laughed a lot. I pray I look older in 10 years, cause that will mean I鈥檓 alive.鈥

The tweet earned more than 57,000 likes from fans. One replied, 鈥淐an鈥檛 wait to see you when you鈥檙e 80. And if you鈥檙e still doing aerial stunts, all the better.鈥 To which Pink wrote, 鈥淵ou know I will! I鈥檒l call it 鈥榯he wrinkles and rolls tour.'鈥

Pink has never been shy about calling out her haters, and she鈥檚 equally vocal about the importance of self-love. During her acceptance speech for the Video Vanguard Award at last year鈥檚 VMAs, she told a story about a conversation she had with her daughter Willow. 鈥淚鈥檓 the ugliest girl I know,鈥 Willow told her mom. 鈥淚 look like a boy with long hair.鈥

Pink responded by creating a PowerPoint presentation to show her daughter some of the 鈥渁ndrogynous rock stars鈥 and artists who have changed the world. 鈥淲hen people make fun of me, that鈥檚 what they use,鈥 she told Willow. 鈥淭hey say I look like a boy, or I鈥檓 too masculine, I have too many opinions, my body is too strong.鈥

Pink then asked her daughter if she had ever seen her mom change to suit others. She hadn鈥檛, but she had seen her mom succeed. 鈥淲e don鈥檛 change,鈥 Pink said. 鈥淲e take the gravel and the shell, and we make the pearl. We help other people to change, to see more kinds of beauty.鈥
