Pop singer Pink celebrated her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Tuesday, an honor she considered "surreal".
"I want to dream, and if someone crushes me, I give him a fist in the eyebrow," said the Grammy winner at the ceremony, surrounded by her husband and two children. "I feel that many people thought it would be ashamed, but look at me, here I am."
Pink, whose real name is Alecia Moore, recalled her beginnings in the music world and salutes her father, as she said, urging her to follow her dreams.
"Today is a feast for something my father taught me and is myself true," said the 39-year-old practitioner. "There is a lot of power in believing in oneself that is power not to surrender in life by not giving up."
Pink received 20 Grammy nominations and won three Gramophones in her career.
On Sunday he will look for a fourth statuette for "Beautiful Trauma", nominated for best pop music album.
Since its debut in 2000, it has released seven study albums and sold more than 50 million copies.
Pink started in music with the group of Choice girls, and that was when she left. His first solo album, "Can not Take Me Home", in 2000, was a double platinum album in the United States.
His first Grammy came in 2002 with "Lady Marmalade", which was part of the soundtrack of the musical "Moulin Rouge".
His other two Grammys were for best vocal performance of female rock for "Trouble" in 2004, and in 2011 he shared the award for best pop collaboration with "Imagine".
