Singer and all-around badass Pink is not one to sit back and let others say whatever they want about her online.
Known for her singing, her acrobatic skills and, of course, her knack for always having the perfect comeback to haters, Pink destroyed a Twitter troll on Wednesday morning who criticised her appearance.
Commenting on footage from Pink’s ‘Beautiful Trauma’ tour in Vancouver, Canada, one user tweeted: “Wow Pink looks so old that should be named Purple instead.”

The 38-year-old responded to the troll’s age shaming with the best response, writing: “You must be from LA. Well, there a few people left in the world that choose to age naturally. And I’ve earned every f–king minute of my 38 years. How you lookin though? Cause I never heard of ya til you put my name in your mouth. I shall call you little purple troll.”

But Pink didn’t stop there, later adding that she is more than happy to age.
“I am of the mindset that it’s a blessing to grow old,” she wrote. “That if your face has lines around your eyes and mouth it means you’ve laughed a lot. I pray I look older in 10 years, cause that will mean I’m alive.”
Pink’s fans loved her response, coming to her defence and praising her outspoken honesty on social media.
Man, I’m 38 and you are my inspiration to be fit, strong and badass. It’s important that my daughters(12 & 10) have real role models like you. I’m proud that we will hopefully be taking them to see you in Scotland next year. Love you P!nk

You are real. In this fake and pretend world you always has been. Motherhood and age has come to you in most wonderful way. +Beautiful than ever

Another fan, named Kyle Loranger, wrote that he couldn’t wait to see Pink perform when she’s 80.
“And if you’re still doing aerial stunts, all the better,” he wrote.
Pink responded to Kyle’s tweet, writing: “You know I will! I’ll call it ‘the wrinkles and rolls tour’.”
Count us in for the “wrinkles and rolls” tour!
