Pink is 2018’s Most Beautiful Woman!
The stunning singer, whose real name is Alecia Moore, covers People’s newly renamed “Beautiful Issue” with her and husband Carey Hart's two kids, Willow, 6, and Jameson, 1, which was unveiled on Wednesday.
People editor-in-chief Jess Cagle explained the meaning behind the iconic issue’s new evolution, which was aimed at dropping the “most’ modifier and embracing all types of beauty.
“Over the years, the name of the issue has evolved (‘50 Most Beautiful,’ ‘Most Beautiful Woman,’ etc.), but the words ‘Most Beautiful’ have always been part of the title,” Cagle explained. “This year we’re renaming it ‘The Beautiful Issue’ — to make clear that the issue is not a beauty contest. Nothing else has changed.”
“As always it will feature beautiful women (and a few men) of all shapes, sizes and colors, and it will celebrate the most beautiful qualities of all: strength, humanity and artistry.”
People describes Pink as “a woman who checks all those boxes. She’s a performer, mother and role model whose honesty, humor, confidence and sheer star power make her one of the most beloved and fascinating entertainers on the planet.”
In the issue, the mother of two opens up about raising kids that will grow up to be strong adults. “The thing about parenting is you never know if anything you’re doing is working,” she tells the magazine. “That’s been the most humbling thing for me. In my head, I sound amazing and then I turn around and her eyes are completely glazed over. I have no idea. We’ll see.”
It's also important to Pink that her home be gender neutral. "Absolutely, [but] I feel like gender-neutral is in itself a label and I’m label-less,” she notes. “I don’t like labels at all so I believe that a woman and a girl can do anything.
"I believe that a boy can do anything, she adds. "So I have boys that flip dirt bags and I have boy friends that wear dresses. It’s all okay to me. It’s whatever floats your boat. So that’s the kind of house that we live in."
The 38-year-old singer's honor comes just a few months after Blake Shelton was named People’s “Sexiest Man Alive” for 2017. The "Came Here to Forget" singer said it was his girlfriend, Gwen Stefani, who really convinced him to embrace his new title.
"She goes, ‘Listen to me, you’re going to regret this for the rest of your life if you don’t take this gift and just live in the moment,'” he said.
