Pink will never be picture-perfect Beyoncé. When it comes to the two pop stars, Pink claims the difference is black and well, Pink.
“The best I can gather is that Australia likes their artists to be rugged and raw and authentic, and America likes their artists to be glamorous and a little more packaged and glossy—like the difference between me and Beyoncé,” the “Sober” singer tells Rolling Stone in the magazine’s September 17 issue.
Although she respects Beyoncé, Pink says she lacks the polish of her peer. “She’s beautiful, she’s multitalented, and she lives this jet-set lifestyle,” she explains. “And then there’s me: You would picture me out in a field boxing a kangaroo with makeup running down my face, crying about something that happened a week ago.”
The North American leg of Pink’s Funhouse tour kicked off this week. She will make stops at Los Angeles’ Staples Center (Sept. 18) and Houston’s Toyota Center (Sept. 24) before closing at Madison Square Garden on October 5.
