Let’s get physical! Pink keeps fit by working out with husband Carey Hart… just days before she turns 34
Pink credits her father for her high self-esteem. The ‘Just Give Me a Reason’ star, who has a two-year-old daughter, Willow, with her husband Cary Hart, is determined to enjoy her life and thinks her family, including her dad Jim Moore, have helped her maintain a healthy attitude and a positive body image. The 33-year-old star told the October issue of Women’s Health magazine: ”My dad used to drill it into my head that sometimes you have to stand on the mountain alone. ‘You’re perfect just the way you are, and I think you’re beautiful, and I think, more important, that you’re smart and funny and talented.’ I just had the right people in my life. And I had points to prove. I liked being different.” The singer’s fans also make her feel more empowered. She said: ”I’ve exorcised so many demons by writing and singing and having shows with all these people who feel the way I do.” Despite being well known for her toned abs, Pink admits she doesn’t think her figure is perfect. She said: ”I would like to be more disciplined, but I just really enjoy food. I have an Italian mind-set when it comes to food and family and festivities. It’s like, just enjoy life. Try to eat clean as much as possible. I’d love to be 10 pounds thinner, but it’s not in the cards for me. And I’m totally OK with that.” Contactmusic

Rio Tinto believes the United States will remain its key market for diamonds but China is growing fast as the increasing affluence of the country’s middle-class drives up demand. “The Chinese market is about five percent. We do expect, through the course of 2020, for that to be over 20 percent,” said Alan Davies, chief executive of Rio Tinto’s diamonds and minerals division. “So there’s good growth there.” Tiffany & Co said last month that demand for gems in China had lifted its global sales in the latest quarter, leading the luxury jeweler to raise its profit forecast for the year. Pink diamonds comprise just 0.01 percent of the Argyle mine’s total production but they make up more than 90 percent of the pink diamonds on the global market. The rarity of the gems pushes up the price to about 20 times that of white diamonds. Argyle’s diamonds in the category sell for more than $1 million per carat. As far as the Fancy Reds go, the Argyle mine has only ever produced nine of the rare gems, including the three at this year’s tender. The price? “It’s extraordinarily hard to put a price on (Fancy Reds) and, frankly, the imagination is the limit,” said Davies. Chinese demand for diamonds reaches beyond the traditional solitaire engagement ring. It is increasingly common for customers to buy diamond-studded fashion jewelry for themselves, rather than just as gifts for others, Davies said. To develop this aspect of the Chinese market, Rio Tinto has partnered with Chow Tai Fook Jewellery Group Ltd, which has made Rio Tinto’s jewelry and gems available in 1,000 of its stores across the greater China region.
