The connection that us lesbians have with P!nk is primal.
Last night I watched P!nk’s new documentary, All I Know So Far on Amazon Prime and it got me thinking, what is it about this woman that us lesbos just can’t get enough of?
If you’ve ever been to a P!nk concert, then you would’ve seen that the crowd is normally full of lesbians all sporting short hair cuts and Superdry hoodies in an attempt to look like P!nk. BUT. WE. WILL. NEVER. LOOK. LIKE. P!NK.
(I feel I need to make that clear, even though it devastates me that I will never look like her either).
A few reasons why we’re so crazy obsessed with her is because she’s an LGBT ally, a feminist and she doesn’t take any shit, (though in the documentary she says she eats shit for breakfast).
She also looks banging in anything she wears, which seems rather unfair. I mean seriously, no one should look that good in every single outfit.
If I were to wear some of the outfits that she wears, e.g. dungarees and an oversized lumberjack shirt, then I’d look like some butch-ass hillbilly who’s being hired to do security on the door of a nightclub.
I love her, but not in a fancy/I want to have sex with her kind of way. I think I just want to BE her. I mean, that’s all us lesbos can ever dream of, right ladies? I think this is also how I feel about Harry Styles, I just want to BE him, but not in a “I want to be a boy way”. I’m clearly very confused.
But Why DO Lesbians Love P!nk So Much?
I mean, she’s not even gay!
The main reason that lesbians love P!nk so much is that she’s the queen of the outsiders, the weird ones, the ones who feel different and like they don’t belong. This was very much me growing up (and it’s still very much me now).
I remember when I was 11-years-old, I was sat in my IT class at school singing Dear Diary to my best friend at the time, and I think I drove her mad with it. But 11-year-old Jenna didn’t realise that she was gay, proving that my love for P!nk has nothing to do with me being a doughnut bumper.
It’s because P!nk and I have a deep spiritual connection, she just doesn’t know it yet.
I know that when I feel crap, weak and my confidence is low, that if I listen to her music or I watch some of her interviews, then I’ll immediately feel stronger, more able to speak up and 100% more able to say “fuck it”. Or more often, “fuck them”.
She’s the role model I needed growing up to say it’s ok if I’m not a girly girl who’s into dollies, dresses and being “lady-like”, much to my mother’s bitter disappointment.
She also taught me that it’s ok to be who you want to be and not who other people want you to be, this isn’t the 1920’s so if I don’t want to wear a mother fucking dress, I won’t wear a mother fucking dress.
P!nk isn’t just for lesbians, she has other fans as well, but us gay ladies really feel that she’s only ever singing to us.
Which of course she isn’t…
She’s only singing to me.
(This is probably the gayest thing you’ve ever read, and it’s the gayest thing I’ve ever written. Lovely.)
