    "I’ve never really depended on my looks. I’ve decided that my talent and my individuality is far more important than my face."

    In a note addressed to herself, the singer — who's 40 and mom to 8 year-old Willow and 3 year-old Jameson — spoke out about the changes she's experiencing as she grows older.

    "Dear Me," she began the tweets, "You're getting older. I see lines. Especially when you smile. Your nose is getting bigger. You look (and feel) weird as you get used to this new reality."

    Letter to self; Dear Me, you’re getting older.I see lines.Especially when you smile.Your nose is getting bigger..You look(and feel) weird as you get used to this new reality.But your nose looks like your kids, and your face wrinkles where you laugh.And yeah you idiot..u smoked.

    "But your nose looks like your kids'," she added, "And your face wrinkles where you laugh. And yeah you idiot...u smoked."

    Pink then went on to say that "every once in a while" she contemplates "altering" her face, but is usually put off when she sees other people with frozen expressions because of cosmetic surgery.

    Continued note to self: Every once in a while you consider altering your face, and then you watch a show where you want to see what the person is feeling... and their face doesn’t move. I’m cannot get behind it. I just can’t.

    "I want my kids to know what I look like when I’m angry," she added.

    She then described herself as "fortunate" for having relied more on her "talent and individuality" rather than her looks, before pledging that she would "age the old fashioned way," by avoiding surgery.

    I’m fortunate because I’ve never really depended on my looks. I’ve decided that my talent and my individuality is far more important than my face. So get on board cause I am about to AGE THE OL FASHIONED WAY (in a tutu ruling shit at 30 mph 100 ft in the air over 40) yasssssssss

    And it seems the tweets caught the attention of another singer — a certain Ms Kelly Clarkson.

    She responded by retweeting Pink, saying that she agreed with the sentiment but wouldn't be flinging herself through the air any time soon.

    I feel you .... except for, you know, the flying through the air thing 👀 You know what, I’ll keep holding it down on the ground for us and you keep the air safe. I’ve always enjoyed teamwork 💁🏼‍♀️🤣😜 https://t.co/XilNPfwnC9

    It's not the first time Pink has spoken out about ageing. In fact, back in 2018 the singer responded to a troll who said she "looked so old", by saying that she's one of "the few people left in the world choosing to age naturally".

    You must be from la. Well, there are a few people left in the world that choose to age naturally. And I’ve earned every fucking 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. https://t.co/3WcH2TRrHW
