Pink turned down X Factor, American Idol

Pink turned down roles judging 'The X Factor', 'American Idol' and 'The Voice'.

The outspoken 32-year-old singer said she refused to take part in the reality TV shows since "you can't be honest" and thought the public would hate her if she voiced her true feelings because there is only room for one 'Mr Nasty'.

Pink told Australian newspaper the Herald Sun: "I was offered 'The Voice' in Australia plus 'American Idol' and 'The X Factor'. I said no because you can't be honest."

"People will hate you if you're honest. Simon Cowell is the only person who gets away with it because he's got an accent. And he's a man."

The 'So What' hitmaker - who has 14-month-old daughter Willow with her husband Carey Grant - has also revealed that being a mother is proving far more emotional than she expected and confessed she cries "daily".

She told Entertainment Tonight that she likes Carey to take the blame for their parenting mistakes, joking: "I'm a perfectionist, I cry daily! I'm glad though that the two things that have gone wrong were Dad's fault.

"The first time anything bad happened he was like, 'Oh, I'm so glad it was me!' I'm like, 'Me too! I'm going to cry anyway though'."

Pink's sixth album 'The Truth About Love' drops in September.
