Pink Reveals She Dated 'N Sync's Joey Fatone, Calls Herself a "Reformed Slut"

USMagazine, Tuesday, April 30, 2013, 9:30am (PDT)

Pink has never been one to mince her words. Appearing on Glamour's June cover, the 33-year-old explains why sex is a popular topic on her latest album, The Truth About Love. "I'm a reformed slut," the pop star says matter-of-factly.

The "Just Give Me a Reason" singer -- mom to daughter Willow, 23 months, with husband Carey Hart -- says she uses the word "slut" to diminish its meaning. "It's my very unsophisticated way of taking the power back," she explains. "I've always had an issue with [the notion that], 'OK, we've both decided to do this. Why am I a slut and you're the player? You didn't get anything from me that I didn't get from you.'"

When she opened up for 'N Sync in the early 2000s, Pink had a secret relationship with one member of the multiplatinum boy band. "Joey Fatone was in love with me," the singer reveals. "He took me to Friendly's on a date and he bought me an ice cream. Such a sweetheart. He asked my dad's permission!"

Fatone may not have been her true love, but Hart certainly is. Though the "Just Give Me a Reason" singer and the motocross racer split up several years before Willow's birth, the pair rebuilt their relationship and are happier than ever. Even so, Pink and Hart's seven-year union takes work.

"Long-term relationships are an everyday choice. It's harder to be in a marriage than it is to bounce from one relationship to the next," Pink says. "We're good because we communicate and we've grown up together, not because we don't fight."

Pink calls motherhood "the raddest thing ever," though she's quick to admit she's not a perfect parent. "When I was at iHeartRadio in Vegas, Carey was at a truck race or something. Willow and I were at the pool, and I was taking her to nap time. She was walking just a foot in front of me. And she tripped and fell and got a concussion. She passed out," the singer recalls. "Cut to an ambulance and fire truck. And a CAT scan. She was about a year old. That was the worst day of my life. And what do they say? 'Kids fall.' Welcome to parenthood. I thought, 'I can't handle this. I'm fitting her for a bubble.'"

Known for her colorful language, Pink says she's had trouble keeping her potty mouth in check around her little girl. "Willow said, 'F-ckin' hi,' the other day. I'm like, 'F-ck!'" We're gonna get a [swear] jar. Have to!"
