Pink posted a photo of herself wake-boarding and revealed that she embraces her figure despite body insecurities.

She captioned the photo: "I always wondered why God gave me thunder thighs. It's cause he knew I'd use them."

Pink previously opened up about her image in January when she posted on her Twitter account, "Letter to self; Dear Me, you're getting older. I see lines. Especially when you smile. Your nose is getting bigger... You look (and feel) weird as you get used to this new reality. But your nose looks like your kids, and your face wrinkles where you laugh. And yeah you idiot..u smoked."

The singer continued: "Every once in a while you consider altering your face, and then you watch a show where you want to see what the person is feeling... and their face doesn't move. I cannot get behind it. I just can't. I want my children to know what I look like when I'm angry."
