Looking back at her wild childhood, the pop singer said she would too have kicked herself out of house for bad behavior.

Outspoken pop star Pink has urged parents to be tough on their troubled kids - because she would have died young if it hadn't been for her dad's hard justice. The "Trouble" singer fears political correctness has stripped modern parents of the ability to spank their children when they mess up and do wrong - and she feels that so many kids need a good smack from time to time to keep them on the right path.

Pink tells Access Hollywood, "I think parents need to beat the c**p outta their kids... I think the whole spanking thing and how it's gotten all PC (politically correct) is for the birds. (My dad) put me through a wall; it's the only reason I'm still alive."

And Pink accepts she was a headache for her parents, who eventually kicked her out of the family home at 15. She adds, "I deserved it. I would have kicked me out when I was eight... I was not comfortable with authority or rules. I was bad."

She'd rather go naked than wear fur, but she's totally okay will inflicting emotional and physical pain on a helpless child who has infinitely more sentience than any animal with fur...

Well, there goes the very small shred of respect I had for that woman. And now she has a child of her own to abuse. Never bought one of her records before, but I would never even consider it now. I don't want to hear some smoke-throated child beater through MY headphones!

We're supposed to take parenting advice from a kook like Pink? She DEFINITELY sounds like someone who needs major counseling for issues she's not dealing with.

Pink had a crappy dad and should stay far away from raising a kid until she does some serious time with a shrink. Wanna see a place full of people who were hit when they were kids? visit a jail.

So, if being spanked fixed all of her problems.. why was she kicked out of the house at 15?

I totally agree!!! The GOVT has no place trying to raise children from a far. GOVT needs to stay out of family structure. When children break laws, as so many do, the first things said is there was no discipline at home and "time out" is not always effective.
