We just caaaan't understand how someone could not like the epically heartbreaking awesomeness that is the song Just Give Me A Reason by P!nk and Nate Ruess!
But apparently the Truth About Love songstress had to fight hard to make the mega-hit a reality!
In a new interview with Billboard mag, P!nk confessed she had a ton of musical opposition in the making of this track:
"I wrote that song, I fought for that song, I fought to have Nate do that song, I fought for the entire thing. And it took many, many months to make that song happen. And I just didn't give up. When I f*cking want something I go after it. Nate wasn't sure that he wanted to be on a collaboration with a pop star. Their label is an independent label, they weren't sure. And I just kept telling them—well, I kind of tricked him into doing it."
And there's really only one huge thing that keeps her fighting for what she wants:
"I'm used to being shit on. I'm used to being the underdog. I'm used to being looked at as a corporation. It's like every year I'm constantly having to reprove myself. I'm not complaining—it keeps me motivated."
Judging by your Woman Of The Year honor and numerous hits/sell out tour—we think you've proved yourself far beyond 2013!
