Pink's Dating Advice For Her Daughter Is The Sweetest Thing You'll Hear All Day
Ever since "Don't Let Me Get Me" was released just 16 short years ago, I have been a diehard P!nk fan. "Don't Let Me Get Me" taught me it's OK not to be perfect. "Get The Party Started" still gets me more pumped to go out than any other song out there. "Stupid Girls" encouraged me to have some substance. "Who Knew" taught me to cherish every moment with my loved ones. And it turns out, her infinite wisdom goes beyond just her music. Want proof? P!nk's dating advice for her daughter is all the proof you need. Wiser words have never been spoken.
The 38-year-old superstar, who also happens to be my idol, is on the cover of Cosmopolitan's January 2018 issue. Inside the magazine, she gives some pretty amazing dating advice to her 6-year-old daughter with husband Carey Hart, Willow Sage Hart. P!nk revealed in the Cosmo issue that, when Willow asked her a dating-related question, she gave her daughter the best piece of advice she could come up with. And you know what? It's actually so, so true:
OK, I have a lot to say here.
First and foremost, how baller is her daughter for 1) having a name as cool and unique as "Willow Sage Hart" and 2) casually just wondering at the ripe age of 6 years old, "How many boys can I have at once?"
Now, this amazing advice isn't the only bomb advice the "What About Us?" singer has graced us with recently. At the 2017 MTV VMAs, while accepting the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, P!nk shared a personal story of a conversation she had with her daughter on the importance of loving yourself. And TBH, this isn't just an important lesson for Willow. This is something we should all remember. At the start of her speech, she said,
P!nk didn't just give her daughter some blanket response about how she should just love herself, however. No, the singer went in DEEP to prove to Willow how important it is that she stay true to herself:
P!nk then used herself as an example, telling Willow that she hasn't changed herself to fit anyone else's vision of what she should be — and she doesn't plan to:
So, the bottom line here? Well, there are two. The first is that, when it comes to dating, we should all heed P!nk's advice: You have to find a partner who is good to both you and their mother, chivalrous, and respectful. The second is that, honestly, don't we all want P!nk to be our mom and give us prime advice like this?
