(NEW YORK) — At the start of her career, singer Pink toured with *NSYNC and 98 Degrees–and, she reveals, she got pretty close with the singers.
“Joey Fatone was in love with me,” she tells Glamour in its June issue. “He took me to Friendly’s on a date and he bought me an ice cream. Such a sweetheart! He asked my dad’s permission.”
Alas, things weren’t meant to be, and now the singer, 33, is happily married to motocross racer Carey Hart, 37–though she admits that their relationship isn’t without its ups and downs.
“Long-term relationships are an everyday choice,” she says in the magazine, on stands May 7. “It’s harder to be in a marriage than it is to bounce from one relationship to the next. We’re good because we communicate and we’ve grown up together, not because we don’t fight.”
And according to Pink, Hart has said that since she gave birth to their daughter Willow in 2011, “my claws have sharpened. They got longer too.”
“Being a parent is… the raddest thing ever,” she continues. [But] every time she bounces on the bed, I see stitches.”
One can’t blame her: The rocker says that “the worst day of my life” was when she watched helplessly as Willow tripped in Las Vegas last year and suffered a concussion.
“Cut to an ambulance and fire truck and a CAT scan,” she says. “What do they say? ‘Kids fall.’ Welcome to parenthood! I thought, ‘I can’t handle this. I’m fitting her for a bubble.’”
