In a new interview, Pink has bravely opened up about having gone through "several miscarriages".

Pink has never been one to shy away from the 'real' topics like marriage hardships, navigating through parenting and calling out the bullies, but her latest interview has seen our girl Pink opening up about something that is not widely spoken about.

Speaking with USA Today, P!nk gave a raw, honest and candid answer when asked about her song, "Happy", off of her new album, Hurts 2B Human.

"Since I was 17, I've always hated my body / and it feels like my body's hated me" she said while explaining the inspiration for the lyrics.

The reason I said [that] is because I've always had this very tomboy, very strong gymnast body, but actually at 17 I had a miscarriage.

She continued, "And I was going to have that child. But when that happens to a woman or a young girl, you feel like your body hates you and like your body is broken, and it's not doing what it's supposed to do. I've had several miscarriages since, so I think it's important to talk about what you're ashamed of, who you really are and the painful (expletive). I've always written that way."

While writing music has been a positive outlet, seeing a therapist and through humour has also helped her cope with the experiences.

"I believe in self-confrontation and just getting things out," Pink says. "What I love about therapy is that they'll tell you what your blind spots are. Although that's uncomfortable and painful, it gives you something to work with. I think the reason I can go to such uncomfortable places and be so honest is because I have a really healthy sense of humor. I'm extremely self-deprecating, and when (expletive) goes bad – which in any life is inevitable – you've just got to find the funny. It's because I can laugh that I can cry so hard."
