HuffPost asked Pink about the social media controversy on Tuesday during an interview to discuss her new album, “Beautiful Trauma.” And she made it clear how she felt about it all ― from social media to the president himself.

“I know that I shouldn’t feed into some of that shit, but it’s who I am and I don’t like injustice … The first tweet was: ’You’re terrible, POTUS, and you’re doing a terrible job. And do you seriously have time to talk about the NFL? Puerto Ricans have no power and you’re talking about the NFL.’”

The singer didn’t mean for her next tweet to be interpreted as support for Trump. The “What About Us” singer added she wants to have hope that things will get better.

“My second tweet was, ‘Let me take a different approach. Let me try to be hopeful,’” Pink said. “Right? That’s what Barack Obama inspired in us ― was hope and change. I’ve seen a lot of people come back from heroin, alcohol, rape, all kinds of things. So, I believe that people can change. So, I want to be hopeful sometimes.”

Pink gets real about how hard monogamy is

  Pink gets real about how hard monogamy is Long term relationships aren't all fun and games. In their 11 years of marriage, Pink and husband Carey Hart have had their ups and downs, including several temporary separations, but that comes with the territory, the "What About Us" singer recently told The Guardian. "There are moments where I look at (Hart) and he is the most thoughtful, logical, constant…he's like a rock. He's a good man. He's a good dad. He's just the kind of dad I thought he'd be and then some," she said. "And there I'll look at him and go: I've never liked you. There's nothing I like about you. We have nothing in common. I don't like any of the s-t you like. I don't ever wanna see you again." The ebbs and flows of their relationship have taken a toll on other aspects of their marriage, namely their sex lives. Pink, 38, admitted that she and Hart are known to experience long periods without sex, which in turn causes her and her hubby to question their attraction to one another. "Then you'll go through time when you haven't had sex in a year," she said. "Is this bed death? Is this the end of it? Do I want him? Does he want me?" In spite of all this, the award winning musician told The Guardian that the extra effort needed to keep their marriage alive is worth it in the end. "Monogamy is work! But you do the work and it's good again," Pink said.

Talk show host Stephen Colbert isn’t backing down from all of the criticism regarding his rant on President Donald Trump the other night saying he "would do it again.". USA TODAY.

Trump Tweets . Butler University, a private school in Indianapolis, has responded to criticism of a "Trumpism & U.S. Democracy" course that was offered to students in order to "potentially engage" in "strategies for resistance" to President Donald Trump .

“The naive little girl in me wants to think that even Donald Trump can change,” she added. “So maybe berating him isn’t the way. Maybe inspiring him and maybe he, even he down deep in there, maybe could still be a good person. He still has a chance to be a good president. And that’s what I got vilified for ― was the hope. And now apparently I voted for him. I’m racist. All these things.”

On Wednesday, Pink took to Twitter in an attempt to make her stance clear, noting that she did not vote for the president last year. She also called his behavior “appalling.”

Pink said she’s upset not only with government, but with the communication breakdown that appears to be happening in many areas inside Washington, D.C.

“Dissent used to be the cornerstone of democracy. We used to be able to disagree and still co-exist peacefully. We have lost the art of communication,” she said. “And my marriage is a testament to communication. My mom and my relationship is a testament to a lifetime of coming back to the table. I think love is coming back to the table. And I wish we could all just come back to the table. And it’s just hard to watch.”

Never one to stand by and remain idle, Pink continued, “So, I have rants every couple of months or years. And I’ve just had it. He [Trump] has inspired the worst in us and myself included, sometimes.”

Pink’s new album, “Beautiful Trauma,” comes out on Friday.
