P!nk just reminded us that she's a badass who happens to be a parent, and not the other way around

"She remembered who she was, and the game changed."
"She remembered who she was, and the game changed."

She built a career on not caring about the opinions of others - until she became a parent that is. 

During an interview with Ellen earlier this year, the singer may have surprised even herself when she got emotional talking about the negative reactions she got over an image she posted to Instagram showing her son without his nappy. 

"I cried so hard after that because I like to share my family... I'm prouder of my kids than anything I've ever done and I just won't share them anymore," she told Ellen.

But a recent post by the singer seems to suggest she's gotten over it, and adopted a new attitude to match. 

She captioned the image with a cheeky little message, preempting mom-shamers: 

"It wasn't even filtered. What a waste of water. And no helmet? I hope she had sunscreen. If she slips and falls, she may be traumatized for life. And her mother wasn't even there. I was..... gasp.... working!!!! In another country!"

Maybe it's the fact that she's taken to the road again for her Beautiful Trauma World Tour and remembered her rock star roots. 

Whatever the reason, we're glad to see P!nk doing P!nk again, flaws and all.
