Pink wants women to stop 'using' their bodies

Pink has hit out at women who flaunt their bodies for attention and money.

The Missundazstood star made the comments in a post on Twitter.com (08Mar16) to celebrate International Women's Day, in what many believe to be a thinly veiled dig at Kim Kardashian.


Pink's remarks come the day after Kim Kardashian caused uproar on social media this week after posting a nude, barely censored, selfie of herself posing in a mirror (07Mar16).


"Shout out to all of the women, across the world, using their brains, their strength, their work ethic, their talent, their 'magic' that they were born with, that only they possess" the 36-year-old singer tweeted.


Adding: "It may not ever bring you as much 'attention' or bank notes as using your body, your sex, your t**s and a**es, but women like you don't need that kind of 'attention'."


Pink, whose real name is Alecia Moore, continued: "In the quiet moments, you will feel something deeper than the fleeting excitement resulting from attention, you will feel something called pride and self respect. Keep on resisting the urge to cave. You'll never have to make silly excuses for yourself. #internationalwomensday #bestrong."


Some of Pink's followers pointed out that the singer was being overly "judgmental" as she has also posed topless in the past.


One fan took it a step further by jokingly replying with a nude photo of the star alongside one of Kim drinking tea.


The unapologetic singer responded saying: "You are all entitled to your opinions and feelings and I am open to hear all of it. But it won’t change my mind.”


The 35-year-old reality TV star is yet to respond to Pink's comments, but hit out at a host of celebrities, including Better Midler and Carrie actress Chloe Grace Moretz, who condemned Kim for being a bad role model to her young women.


Writing in a blog post entitled International Women's Day on (08Mar16) she said: "I am empowered by my body. I am empowered by my sexuality. I am empowered by feeling comfortable in my skin. I am empowered by showing the world my flaws and not being afraid of what anyone is going to say about me."


To bring home her point she then re-tweeted a doubled up image of her original nude with the hashtag "InternationalWomensDay".
