In a relationship with motocross racer Carey Hart for the last ten years, the singer opens up to the new issue of Billboard magazine about the ups and downs in her romantic life, and how her struggles add to her song writing.

"It's funny. I wrote "Family Portrait" when I was 21 and my parents divorced when I was nine, so I tend to hold onto things. I'm still exercising some of those demons. And look, I'm in a relationship that I've been in for 10 years and it's never going to be perfect. Carey always jokes, 'You're always just mad enough at me to write a song,'" she explains.

Now parents to baby daughter Willow Sage, Pink and Hart are stronger than ever and are able to laugh about the tough times. Asked how she responds when her husband jokes about her temper, she quips, "Yep. Thanks, baby, you're my muse."

Life sounds sweet for this former bad girl!
