P!nk just shut down the haters. Again.

On May 12 at the BMI Pop Awards, the 35-year-old singer discussed her recent (and epic) response to body shamers with Entertainment Tonight. "I don't take well to bullying, I never have," P!nk said.

She said she's not one to back down from a bully, but she also has feelings -- just like everyone else. "I'm not a person that will be bullied. I'm not a person that will stand by and watch other people bullied," P!nk told ET. "I think that I'm also raising a girl. I am a girl. I have feelings. People think that I take no shit and that I'm tough, I'm tougher than nails. But I'm a human being."

"I think people have gotten it wrong, they think their opinion matters and holds weight," she said. "And I don't know why they're giving themselves so much credit. So I thought it was important to remind them that I don't care. My life is full, I like food a lot -- I really like to cook, I like to live. I find joy in that and we're doing all right in the Hart household."

Towards the end of the interview P!nk said she shakes off the haters with a good sense of humor. "While you shouldn't hide your feelings or run from pain or numb yourself down I still think it's really important to laugh at all of it," she said.

Go on with your badass self, P!nk.
