Pink on Famously Slamming Her Weight Critics: I Will Not Be Bullied

05/13/2015 at 01:53 PM ET

Last month, Pink schooled body-shamers on Twitter for making negative remarks about her weight in regards to a red-carpet photo of her at an event. Now, the star is explaining why promoting an anti-bullying message in today’s society is a cause close to her heart.

“I don’t take well to bullying,” she told Entertainment Tonight on the carpet at Tuesday’s BMI Pop Awards, with husband Carey Hart standing at her side. “I never have. I’m not a person that will be bullied. I’m not a person that will stand by watching other people bullied.”

The 35-year-old singer, who famously stripped down for PEOPLE’s 2014 Most Beautiful issue, also explained that while she puts on a strong front and still feels great in her own skin, it’s not easy for her to take the harsh comments.

“I am a girl, I have feelings and people think I take no s— and I’m tough, tougher than nails, but I’m a human being,” she said.

But she wanted to remind her haters that she still doesn’t take their rude remarks too seriously. “I don’t care. My life is full, I like food a lot and I really like to cook, I like to live, I find joy in that, and we’re doing all right in the Hart household.”

What do you think of Pink’s fearless attitude? Sound off below.

Give it up, P!nk! You loved it when people praised your gym-hard athlete’s body, so let them comment on this body too, why does it MATTER? It’s not bullying, it’s just OPINING! Don’t give it heft! I will never forget your rocking aerobic performance of “Try” — wow! You are so talented but shut up on this topic, it makes you look juvenile! To borrow a line from your song “SO WHAT???????” Leave it ALONE

People are nuts! If you don’t wear a size two, you’re overweight. Even though I don’t know many of Pink’s songs, I would have never considered her overweight in the least. People need to find better things to do with themselves than criticize other’s weight. Worry about your own…not anybody else’s.

Weight gain?? What the heck?? She looks like a completely “normal” girl to me, whatever normal is nowadays. She certainly doesn’t look overweight. What is wrong with people…

Really don’t like how all those haters and people with opinions come only forward on an online site. You would never share those thoughts in front of them and if you would you are an a..hole. Respect should not die just because you are invisible. I love pink, her family is beautiful and her body rocks!!!

I think she’s beautiful as-is. Why should she maintain a “stage body” when she’s not working? She looks happy, healthy, and more fit than the majority of women out there. We need to let her enjoy her time off in gratitude for her fantastic music and tours. She looks awesome.

She doesn’t even look like she’s gained any weight. When this happened last month I was really puzzled. The only bad thing I would say about her in this photo is that I don’t think that dress was right on her. I think it would have looked better a few inches shorter. She’s very petite and the dress isn’t flattering on her. But she looks good otherwise, no different than how good she always looks!?
