Pink has been recognised as an icon at the 2023 iHeartRadio Music Awards at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles on Monday.
The singer-songwriter spoke about embracing “vulnerability” in her acceptance speech, People magazine reports.
“Thank you iHeart[Radio] for this moment. It has been said that miracles are often associated with icons,” she told the crowd before referencing her star-studded tribute performance from earlier in the night. “Kelly Clarkson singing with me, and Pat Benatar singing one of my songs, two of the greatest voices alive, being on stage, doing what I love with people that I love with all of my heart — and my babies in the audience — this feels like a Christmas miracle.”
Pink, do try to joke or be self-deprecating in these moments, but I want to be a better friend to myself tonight, so I would like to try and say something honest.”
