Pink Isn’t Fat And The Dress Isn’t Ugly — It’s Just One Unflattering Photo

Pink’s response to comments about her weight have gone more than a little viral — she took down trolls who called her fat in a pretty classy way, thanking them for their concern while pointing out the error in their judgement. Even those who would defend her have said that the problem isn’t Pink’s weight, but her dress. A glance at another photo, though, shows clearly that it’s neither.

Here’s the photo that inspired fat-shaming Twitter trolls to attack Pink’s appearance.

Pink isn’t fat. The dress isn’t ugly. It’s not the most flattering photo of her — she even says so herself.

I admit the dress didn’t photograph as well as it did in my kitchen…

In the photo, Pink is frowning and looks uncomfortable, as though it was taken when she wasn’t ready, or was annoyed. In another photo, though, where she’s clearly happy, the dress looks great on her.

In case you’ve missed it, here’s the response that went so viral.

I can see that some of you are concerned about me from your comments about my weight. You’re referring to the pictures of me from last night’s cancer benefit that I attended to support my dear friend Dr. Maggie DiNome. She was given the Duke Award for her tireless efforts and stellar contributions to the eradications of cancer. But unfortunately, my weight seems much more important to some of you. While I admit that that dress didn’t photograph as well as it did in my kitchen, I will also admit that I fet very pretty. In fact, I feel beautiful. So, my good and concerned peoples, please don’t worry about me. I’m not worried about me. And I’m not worried about you either. :) I am perfectly fine, perfectly happy, and my healthy, voluptuous and crazy strong body is having some much deserved time off. Thanks for your concern. Love, cheesecake.

Pink has it exactly right: she looks healthy and happy, and beautiful — and more importantly, anyone focusing on tearing down the singer for her body type is really missing the point, especially when she’s dressed up to support a woman who’s working to put an end to cancer.
