It’s safe to say that rocker Pink is an ass-kicker of epic proportions – but underneath her hard shell of a bod, she says she’s just a “petite tulip.”

Speaking with the UK Mirror, the 33-year-old new mom revealed a bit more behind the year-long regimen she followed to lose 60 pounds and reshape her body post-pregnancy.

“I used to eat entire buckets of chicken wings and once I ate an entire cheesecake in one sitting,” she says of her pregnancy. “I’m terrible when it comes to food. I’m the kind of girl who says she’s not going to eat bread and then I eat an entire loaf. Like some old chuffer.”

To regain her health and body, Pink embraced a (mostly) vegan diet, cardio, yoga, and intense strength training.

“All the stuff I do is core-based work out. All the acrobatics, all the silks and stunts I do on tour mean I need to be strong.

“If you want sick abs you need to hang upside down by your feet and do sit ups. You have to. And you can’t cut corners. And for me it was huge because I had an emergency C-­section so they cut your stomach muscles.

“I couldn’t even sit up on my own for like two-and-a-half months and that scared the bejesus out of me. I do an hour and a half a day for five days a week plus all my rehearsals.”

In the interview, Pink sympathized with Kate Middleton, who last week revealed she was pregnant and suffering from extreme morning sickness. Her experience, however, was a bit different.

“I didn’t have morning sickness at all, I just had genuine rage throughout my ­pregnancy,” she said. “I’m talking 28 Days Later rage. ­Demonic eyes. I wanted to kill everybody.”

“I was having fights in supermarkets and telling people to p*** off all the time. I completely understand why people can be scared of me. But underneath all that rage I’m a petite tulip.”

One of Pink’s former trainers, Gregory Joujon-Roche, revealed to Shape magazine last month her diet routine, saying that anyone else looking for similar results should make sure that whatever they put in their mouths is green.

“Her diet would be quinoa, fresh veggies, superfood shakes, super shots, and wellness shots. We always incorporated things that are really healthy but also user friendly.

“Everything you put in your mouth should be green, except water. There are so many healthy green foods, like green salad, avocado, apples, and juice. Do it once a month. You’ll feel really good for doing it and your body will love you for it. It’ll save your life.”

    I love Pink. But, why are we calling Pink a “vegan” in the headline when the text clearly states “mostly vegan diet”. Please, let’s not throw the term “vegan” around…it sends mixed messages. We can still appreciate Pink for following a mostly plant-based diet, and continuing to advocate for animals (to the extent that she does).

    Pink is not “vegan”. She eats a mostly vegan diet, and she also does commercials for Maybelline- a company that animal tests.

    yeah i agree she isnt vegan if she is endorsing a company that tests on animals. :

    I highly doubt that Pink used the British slang she’s quoted as using here. No American says “some old chuffer,” for example. I would take the whole interview with a grain of salt.

    the title is misleading. while i am sure she does better than most not relying on animal products some articles i’ve seen of late and such…not vegan….but she must be doing lots of things right…she looks great and glows.
