April 30 (UPI) -- Pink graces the cover of Glamour's June issue, in which she talks about her marriage to retired motocross racer Carey Hart, being a mother to 23-month-old Willow and reclaiming the word "slut."

"Oh, yeah. I’m a reformed slut," Pink said of "Walk of Shame" and "Slut Like You," racier songs on her latest album, "The Truth About Love."

"It’s my very unsophisticated way of taking the power back," she explained.

I’ve always had an issue with [the idea that]: “OK, we’ve both decided to do this. Why am I a slut and you’re the player? You didn’t get anything from me that I didn’t get from you.

Pink, born Alecia Moore, also said she once dated former N'Syncer Joey Fatone while touring with the boy band early on in her career.

"Joey Fatone was in love with me," she said. "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."

The 33-year-old pop star added that her seven-year marriage to Hart has never been perfect -- they separated for two years in 2008 -- but their relationship works because they understand each other.

Long-term relationships are an everyday choice. 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.

As for motherhood?

"Being a parent is a Jedi mind f**k," Pink said. "It’s also the raddest thing ever."
