I think she said many times that it was about her

ye i very strongly believe its to do with all this being said...


however - there was one interview - a magazine interview whereby she mentioned it was about childhood abuse? and that she wrote it originally as a poem when she was 13. and then expanded on the poem - to make it a song - Long Way To Happy. - And thats what she said. So ye. I believe somethin happened to her...x x

and i write alot. and from my personal experience.
you don't write that stuff - unless you've felt it... x

That's true. But one can also write from what others have experienced.

here i found the interview to prove what i just posted...





Long way to happy is an intense recollection of childhood abuse, based on a poem she wrote when she was 13.

'I keep all my journals, because every time I start a new album I think I have nothing to contribute to the world and I think I suck and what if I can´t sing and black, blah blah blah,' says Pink.
She writes in her journal to this day, and carries the old ones round with her. On her first day in the studio with new collaborator Butch Walker she was going through them.
'It´s always hard when you meet somebody new to be like, hey here´s my blood, taste it, let´s work together,' she cackles.
But she let Walker read the poem Long way to happy, and he insisted they turn it into a song.

Is it true, that by discussing these old emotional issues, closure comes?
'Yep,' says Pink.
Her brother Jason came to see her once in concert in Dallas. She dedicated Family Portrait to him.
'He was in the 10th row and I was onstage and we were both sharing a moment. After I wrote that song I was happier, and I was happier after my parents heard it. Unfortunately it´s like 5 minutes,' she says breezily.
'You write a song, and you´re like, fvck that felt really good. I´m glad I got that out. Then your family hear it and they´re like I can´t believe you were so affected! And they wanna talk about it for months.'
'I´m like, it´s done! But anyway. It´s over. Long way to happy is out there. Somebody, somewhere will relate to it. And I won´t feel embarassed to talk about it.'


hope this helps.

Yeah I remember this, but I also remember her saying in an interview it was about different kinds of abuse, that a lot of people around her had been abused, including her. The person who interviewed her didn't really get into that. It could be about her in a abusive relationship, and the rape of maybe a friend? I'm only speculating her, hoping the raping thing didn't happen to her. (not that I say it's better if a friend got raped)

Thanks! Yeah, I've read quite some interviews where she talked about it...but I'd much rather like to HEAR it directly from herself.

I think I know which interview you are talking about. It was the one before the Flashmob concert in NYC, wasn't it?

she talked about it in the may 2006 seventeen magazine interview.

17: why did you want to make long way to happy the song about an abusive relationship?
P: because i've seen how painful it can be to be abused and how it affects your entire life, and you never truely get away from it. it's the whole feeling of being taken advantage of. you can just be completely ripped apart.
17: why does it happen so often to young women?
P: because we all just wanna be loved. i mean, i don't know why there's so much abuse in the world, i really don't. but i have friends who have been molested by family members, i have friends who have been raped. i have, you know, i've my own ****. it's just painful.
17: did a guy abuse you when you were younger?
P: yeah, absolutely.
17: do you wanna talk about that?
P: not really. *laughs*. honestly the coolest thing is, i don't regret a single thing i've ever done or that has ever happened to me, because i've this platform to talk about it and shre it with people, and i am so strong because of it and so much wiser, and i know better now that i wouldn't take any of it back.

do you know what show it was?? or what channel it was on etc?

and 2bh. i think p!nk has been abused in a lot of ways. i mean, she did drugs too. and not to generalise, but i have friends who have done drugs etc. and they always want something more than just they're money in return if you get me and with all of them it's happened. and so 2bh theres a lot of **** that comes with drugs that her herself has probably seen a lot of too - and experienced. I just thinklistening to her stories, her childhood, her past, listening to what she says in interviews - the whole tough girl image. everything. listening to her music. you know that people have hurt her... x it's always the nicest of people. who dont deserve it... x

referring to the interviews posted above I don't think she was raped I think it was some friend of her, because she said she's seen life getting torn, but isn't really afraid to say she had an abusive bf, so if it was her, I bet she'd tell
but still I never really got myself to thinking what that song is about, now that I know the direction, I love it even more than before...and once more it just proves that each song of her has a meaning and that you can make beautiful music with that. to those saying you can't give a deep meaning to every song you write, well that's just an excuse for them to say they lack of talent
