If you want your baby bump photographed properly, sometimes you have to do it yourself.
It's a reality that dawned on mommy-to-be Pink after growing frustrated with inept paparazzi shots of her growing middle.
The singer tweeted Friday, “ALRIGHT... because paparazzi of today have absolutely no photograhic skill or artistry whatsoever, and their pictures are hideous… I'm going to post a self-portrait I took yesterday morning for all of you asking to see belly shots.”
The accompanying photo of the 31-year-old songstress showed a thoughtfully-framed black-and-white snapshot of her torso, leaving just her chin in the picture.
“3 wks of photo classes for me,” she tweeted, “and I am already a far better photographer than any one of them.....”
Last fall, Pink announced that she and husband Carey Hart are expecting, and that doctors believe they’ll soon be parents of a baby girl.
But no matter the gender, Pink's been very clear that she plans on welcoming her new arrival with open arms.
"I have a life inside of me, and I want her or him to know that I will accept him or her with open and loving and welcoming arms," she recently wrote in a blog post. “And though I will prepare this little munchkin for a sometimes cruel world, I will also equip this kid to see all the beauty in it as well."
She went on, “There are good people in this world that are open-minded, and loving. There are those that accept us with all of our flaws. I do that with my fans/friends, and I will do that with my child, whoever they decide to be.”
