She had also added the hashtags 'throwing buckets', 'strong is my goal', and 'somebody sponsor me already.' She received a lot of praise from her fans and followers who commented on the picture. One such fan shared, "Thunder thighs???? God gave u a bad a** body. A bad a** voice and a bad a** a**.... embrace every inch of you heart and soul 💓 x."
Another wrote, "Thank you for sharing such a simple but inspiring message. Love it!" While another fan gushed, "Man I’ll be so stoked when we get away from vanity and start acknowledging the POWER in our capabilities and what our bodies allow us to do!! Grateful for you!" A fan wrote, "Love this!!! Our family has always talked about our 'thunder thighs' I LOVE hearing it as positive! I constantly tell my daughter how strong she is, how fit."
The singer has always been very vocal about body positivity and what it means to her. She had taken to Twitter to share a candid 'letter to self' earlier this year where she opened up on accepting her appearance. Her tweet read, "Dear Me, you’re getting older. I see lines. Especially when you smile. Your nose is getting bigger… You look (and feel) weird as you get used to this new reality. But your nose looks like your kids, and your face wrinkles where you laugh… and yeah you idiot… u smoked."

She wrote in another tweet, "Continued note to self: Every once in a while you consider altering your face, and then you watch a show where you want to see what the person is feeling… and their face doesn’t move. I cannot get behind it. I just can’t," she continued.

"I’m fortunate because I’ve never really depended on my looks. I’ve decided that my talent and my individuality is far more important than my face," Pink added in another tweet.

Back in 2017, Pink had shared a heartwarming conversation she had with her daughter Willow during her acceptance speech at the MTV Video Music Awards. She said that once Willow had told her, "I’m the ugliest girl I know." She remembered that she told her daughter, "You’re beautiful. When people make fun of me they say I look like a boy or I’m too masculine or I’m too outspoken. Do you see me growing my hair? Do you see me changing my body? Do you see me selling out arenas all over the world?"
The mother of two continued, "Baby girl, we don’t change," before naming artistes such as Janis Joplin, George Michael, Freddie Mercury, Elton John. "We take the gravel in the shell and make a pearl. We help other people to change, so they can see all kinds of beauty."
