Pink discusses therapy, contrived rivalries and more in a new interview with People.
The singer said of couple counseling with her husband Carey Hart: “I’m a big fan of counseling in general. [Carey and I] both are in individual therapy and we do couples counseling.
“Long-term relationships are not easy. It’s a lot easier to stay in the solo days and switch between relationships because then you don’t have to deal with issues that keep coming back.

Pink, who shares daughter Willow, 9, and son Jameson, 4, with Hart, adds: “You have to fix yourself up eventually; you can’t fix the other person. I don’t want to break up my family. It was my main goal, since I had a broken family. So sometimes you have to let it go. You cannot die on every mountain.
Pink talks about being considered “anti-Britney” or “anti-Christina” early in her career.
She told the magazine, “It was so unfair to all the girls. Neither of us wanted that, I love Britney – she used to carry my album.
“I was like, ‘Dude, I’m a street punk, I just skateboard. It doesn’t have to be the anti-Britney. I don’t want to fight anybody. I think we hiked it as well as a 20 year old girl can. Now I think it’s totally different. Girls supporting girls is awesome – love watching it.

She then talks about her relationship with her mom Judith Moore.
Pink says: “[My mom] kicked me out when I was 15. It took me about six years to come back to her. I needed her when I was 21.
“She was there for me and we’ve been best friends ever since. We were together last week to talk about the regrets we had. She comes from a generation that is not very good at apologizing. I will never forget but I am here to forgive.
