P!nk se boodskap aan haar dogter by die MTV MVA’s is iets wat jy móét hoor

Dis regtig hartroerend! Deur Laura Beck
MTV VMA's

P!nk het gisteraand by die MTV VMA’s die Michael Jackson Video Vanguard-trofee ontvang en ’n pragtige, inspirerende toespraak oor haar dogter, Willow, gelewer. Maak seker jy het jou snesies byderhand voordat jy die video kyk, want jy gaan beslis ’n paar trane stort!

En hier is die toespraak, in haar eie woorde, sodat jy dit kan volg en onthou:

I know I don’t have a lot of time … recently I was driving my daughter to school and she said to me, out of the blue … I’m the ugliest girl I know. And I said, “Huh?” And she said, “Yeah, I look like a boy with long hair.” …

I didn’t say anything, and instead I went home and I made a powerpoint presentation for her. And in that presentation were androgynous rock stars and artists that live their truth, are probably made fun of every day of their life, and carry on and wave their flag and inspire the rest of us … and these are artists like Michael Jackson … George Michael … Elton John … so many artists. Her eyes glazed over…

But then I said …”What do you think I look like?” And she said, “Well, you’re beautiful.” And I said, “Well, thanks.” But I said, “When people make fun of me, that’s what they use. They say that I look like a boy … my body is too strong. I said to her, “Do you see me growing my hair?” “No, mama.” “Do you see me changing my body?” “No, mama?”…

“Do you see me selling out arenas all over the world?” “Yes, mama.” Okay. So, baby girl. We don’t change. We take the gravel in the shell and we make a pearl. And we help other people change so they can see more kinds of beauty…

To all the artists here: I’m so inspired by all of you, thank you for being your true selves. There’s so much rad shit happening right now in music …

[Talking to Willow] And you, my darling girl, are beautiful. And I love you.

Sien? Ons het gesê jy gaan die trane moet afdroog! Dis so mooi.
