'I feel beautiful': See Pink's inspiring response to body-shaming critics

When Pink posed on the red carpet at a recent charity event, she was surprised to see nasty comments about her weight — rather than praise for the worthy cause she was supporting.

So, the 35-year-old singer took to Twitter to shut down her critics, proclaiming that she felt beautiful — and happy — despite their insults.

"I can see that some of you are concerned about me from your comments about my weight. You're referring to the pictures of me from last night's cancer benefit that I attended to support my dear friend Dr. Maggie DiNome," Pink wrote on Sunday, referring to the John Wayne 30th Annual Odyssey Ball in Los Angeles the previous night.

"She was given the Duke Award for her tireless efforts and stellar contributions to the eradication of cancer. But unfortunately, my weight seems much more important to some of you. While I admit that the dress didn't photograph as well as it did in my kitchen, I will also admit that I felt very pretty. In fact, I feel beautiful," she continued.

Pink — who we think looked lovely in the plunging black satin frock — finished the post by asking her followers not to fret over her weight.

"So, my good and concerned peoples, please don't worry about me. I'm not worried about me. And I'm not worried about you either. I am perfectly fine, perfectly happy, and my healthy, voluptuous and crazy strong body is having some much deserved time off. Thanks for your concern."

She followed up the post by sharing an adorable exchange with her 3-year-old daughter, Willow.
