Pink - Pink is 'comfortable' with her looks

Pink is happy her success has nothing to do with her looks.

The 'Try' singer - who is a model and spokesperson for CoverGirl make up - claims she was told she would never make it in the music industry because she wasn't pretty enough, but insists it doesn't bother her.

The 33-year-old blonde star told the March issue of Redbook magazine: ''I was always considered butch. A 'girl like me' is someone who doesn't rest on her looks, who has had people tell me from day one, 'You're never going to get magazine covers because you are not pretty enough'. I'm totally comfortable with that. I know my strong points: I work hard, I have talent, I'm funny and I'm a good person.''

The 'So What' singer gave birth to her first child, Willow, in June 2011 and credits her husband Cary Hart, 37, for making her feel good about how she looks and feels.

She said: ''Feeling beautiful to me is when I feel good in my leather pants and my husband grabs my ass. Or when I'm sitting on a mat and my daughter runs to me with complete joy. Beautiful has never been my goal. Joy is my goal - to feel healthy and strong and powerful and useful and engaged and intelligent and in love. It's about joy. And there's such joy now.''

The couple separated after two years of marriage in 2008 but reunited almost a year later because they never got over each other.

Pink revealed: ''Eleven months after we broke up, he asked me to fly to Las Vegas to perform on New Year's Eve at his club. I wanted to see him. And I looked hot.

''Anyway, after sound check I told him that he needed to come to my room. I had made him a photo album of all the cards he had ever given me, of all the photos of our entire relationship. I spent months on this album. On the last page, I pasted a photo of me from a really bad movie I made years ago with my neck slit and blood everywhere. Next to it I wrote, 'This is me without you.' On the next page, there was a picture of a baby. And I wrote: 'The rest is unwritten.'''
