We know P!nk as one hell of an artist, a strong female role model, and more recently, a Mama with a message. Watch P!nk reinforce this powerful message to her daughter Willow.

P!nk was the recipient of this year’s Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the MTV Video Music Awards. Taking the stage to accept her award, she used the moment to tell a story of a time her six year old daughter said “I’m the ugliest girl I know.”

The flood of emotions that come after hearing your child make such a statement are imaginable to any parent: anger, confusion, desperation. Instead of acting on any of those natural responses, Pink goes on to describe how she used this opportunity to teach her young daughter about self-empowerment.

 

Watch as she shares her message with her daughter, and everyone watching the VMAs:

 

 

 

Be your true self. That is all.
