'I feel beautiful,' says Pink, shutting down critics 'concerned' about her weight
'[My] crazy strong body is having some much deserved time off,' the singer wrote on Twitter
The 35-year-old American pop star, whose 2006 song Stupid Girls poked fun at celebrity beauties, received less than flattering comments after she was photographed Saturday in a black cocktail dress at the John Wayne 30th Annual Odyssey Ball.
But the mother of one refused to take the fat shaming comments in silence, telling critics "While I admit that that dress didn't photograph as well as it did in my kitchen, I will also admit that I felt very pretty. In fact, I feel beautiful."

"I'm perfectly fine, perfectly happy and my healthy, voluptuous and crazy strong body is having some much deserved time off," Pink tweeted Sunday.
"Thanks for your concern," she wrote, signing the note "Love, cheesecake."
Fans embrace her message
Pink's self-love missive inspired an outpouring of support from her fans, who shared pictures of their bodies with the pop star.
