Pink Criticizes People Who Shame Mothers That Breastfeed In Public

"There was two guys on before me and their stuff was very homophobia, slamming women in every kind of way", DeGeneres, recalling one of her early stand-up performances, says in "Firsts", TIME's multimedia project featuring candid interviews with 46 groundbreaking women.

The comedian, who's celebrating the 15th season of her popular U.S. talk show Ellen, spoke to Ryan Seacrest on air about how views have changed since the 90s - and how hard it was to be openly gay back then. "I'm going to win an award and I'm going to do a show".

"(I was like), 'Can you pretend to be excited for me". "You're incredible. I made you - you can't say that!' No, but actually I didn't say anything because I was so speechless and I didn't want to 'mom" her and start preaching to her and not be effective at all so, I just stayed quiet.

At the VMAs, Pink brought fans to tears with the impassioned acceptance speech she gave, which she dedicated to her six year old daughter.

Pink, who also performed at the VMAs, revealed her daughter had left her speechless during a vehicle ride to school one morning when she told her mum she felt like the ugliest girl - because she looked like a boy. "I look like a boy with long hair". Yep, she was banned from saying the word "We".

Blondes do have more fun - just don't ask them any followup questions about it! I didn't know what to say. "What is "it"?"she asked, to which DeGeneres retorted: "You know what "it" is".

"I said no follow-up questions!". "No, mama.' Do you see me changing my body?"
