P!nk Covers Glamour June 2013

P!nk , who hasn’t lost a single bit of her rebellious spirit, covers the June 2013 issue of Glamour Magazine , available now on newsstands.

Inside her feature titled “Bring It Pink,” she talks about taking power back from the word “slut,” how her mama bear claws are even longer, daughter Willow recently picking up the word “fuck,” and throws husband Carey Hart to the Glamour reader wolves for forgetting to bring her flowers.

“I’m just living my life. I don’t want to be your kind of good.”

The feisty 33-year-old Top 40 hitmaker and Cover Girl wears a revealing Donna Karan New York dress with briefs on the cover, and selections from Marc Jacobs, Vivienne Westwood, Dolce & Gabbana and more chosen by Anne Christensen .

Check out snippets from her entertaining interview, see the full fashion spread from her desert shoot photographed by Ellen von Unwerth , and watch behind the scenes footage below.

On new songs “ Slut Like You ” and “ Walk of Shame :”

“Oh, yeah. I’m a reformed slut. It’s my very unsophisticated way of taking the power back. I’ve always had an issue with [the idea that]:’ OK, we’ve both decided to do this. Why am I a slut and you’re the player? You didn’t get anything from me that I didn’t get from you.’”

On naming her daughter Willow Sage:

“I love the idea that a willow tree cannot be snapped or broken. And we burn sage all the time. It clears bad energy.”

On being a mama-bear:

“Somebody asked Carey how I’ve changed since I had Willow, and he said my claws have sharpened. They got longer too.”

On if things are good with on-again husband Carey:

Are things ever good? I don’t believe that exists. Long-term relationships are an everyday choice. It’s harder to be in a marriage than it is to bounce from one relationship to the next. We’re good because we communicate and we’ve grown up together, not because we don’t fight.”

On the last thing they fought about?

“[ Yells to the next room ] Carey! What was the last thing we fought about? Oh, I know! You not getting me flowers and being a douchebag. That was it. He needed to get me flowers after I had a big show.

Hear that, Carey? I’m throwing you to 17 million wolves [ Glamour readers] right now, buddy.”

On her worst day as a parent:

“When I was at iHeartRadio [music festival] in Vegas. Carey was at a truck race or something. Willow and I were at the pool, and I was taking her to nap time. She was walking just a foot in front of me. And she trips and falls and gets a concussion. She passed out. Cut to an ambulance and fire truck. And a CAT scan. She was about a year old. That was the worst day of my life.

And what do they say? ‘Kids fall.’ Welcome to parenthood. I thought, I can’t handle this. I’m fitting her for a bubble.

Every time she bounces on the bed, I see stitches. Being a parent is a Jedi mind f–k. It’s also the raddest thing ever.”

On how her cursing influences Willow:

Willow said, ‘Fuckin’ hi,’ the other day. I’m like, ‘Fuck!’”
