    Pop superstar Pink accepted the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award — the MTV Music Awards' biggest honor — on Sunday night by sharing an inspiring message to her daughter, Willow Sage, 6.

    After nearly two decades in the spotlight, the 37-year-old singer accepted the award from comedian Ellen DeGeneres by sharing a candid anecdote about Willow Sage telling her she felt ugly "because I look like a boy."

    Flabbergasted, Pink told the audience, "I went home and I made a Power Point presentation for her. And in that presentation were androgynous rock stars, artists that lived their truth, are probably made fun of every day of their life, and carry on and wave their flag and inspire the rest of us."

    "When people make fun of me, that's what they use," Pink told her daughter. "They say that I look like a boy, or I'm too masculine, or I have too many opinions, or my body is too strong."
