P!nk Accepts iHeartRadio Icon Award: Look + Listen

On Monday’s iHeartRadio Music Awards, P!nk was presented with the Icon Award.

Prior to the accolade at Los Angeles’ Dolby Theatre stage, the 43-year-old singer/songwriter performed her 2012 hit ‘Just Give Me A Reason’ with Clarkson along with legendary rockers Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo who sang her 2001 song ‘Just Like a Pill’. 

In her acceptance speech P!nk (born Alecia Beth Moore) said:

“It has been said that miracles are often associated with icons.” “Kelly Clarkson singing with me and Pat Benatar singing one of my songs and two of the greatest voices alive being on stage doing what I love with people that I love with all of my heart, and my babies in the audience … this feels like a Christmas miracle.”

Paying tribute to her fans the pop music superstar said she is “grateful to be alive” adding:

“I usually do try to joke or be self-deprecating in these moments, but I want to be a better friend to myself tonight, so I would like to try and say something honest. “Every room I walk into, my heart walks in first. Every lyric that I write is my heart crying, raging hoping, screaming, pleading.” “You have watched me do this, sifting through life’s messiness for almost 25 years. Some of you find what I do annoying, and some of you find it brave, and I just find it necessary.” “Vulnerability means the ability to be wounded. I have decided to make vulnerability my life’s work, and for those of you that have joined me on this adventure, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.” “I’m grateful to be alive. I’m grateful I get to do this with my one precious life. Most of all, Willow and Jameson, I’m grateful to be your mama.”
