When A Troll Said Pink Looked 'So Old' On Twitter, The Singer Called Aging 'A Blessing'

"You must be from [L.A.]."

Word to the wise: Pink is not here for your ageist remarks. A Twitter troll recently decided to comment on the singer's appearance by saying she looked "so old," leading to her responding and calling the aging process "a blessing."


It all began when a radio station shared the story about the 12-year-old girl who sang "Perfect" at a Pink concert — blowing the three-time Grammy winner away in the process. A Twitter user then chimed in with their opinion, writing: "Wow Pink looks so old that should be named Purple instead." An hour later, Pink responded.

"You must be from [L.A.]. Well, there are a few people left in the world that choose to age naturally," Pink wrote. "And I've earned every fucking minute of my 38 years. How you lookin' though? 'Cause I never heard of ya 'til you put my name in your mouth. I shall call you little purple troll."

While it may not have been the calmest reply to an online hater and was essentially fighting fire with fire, Pink did have a point. Then, likely after a moment of clarity, she hit back with another tweet that explained her view on the aging process and stood up for herself.

"I am of the mindset that it's a blessing to grow old," Pink added, getting very gushy. "That if your face has lines around your eyes and mouth it means you've laughed a lot. I pray I look older in 10 years, 'cause that will mean I'm alive."

In Hollywood, aging is considered a dirty word — especially for women. There's a double standard that men get better with age and women lose their spark, but that's slowly changing. It's a mindset that the likes of Jennifer Aniston, Helen Mirren, and others have challenged. 

Age is just a number, it's not who we are.
