Pink thanked her husband and children as she was honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, while delivering an inspirational message to her fans.

The pop star and her family attended the ceremony in Los Angeles on Tuesday alongside talk show host Ellen DeGeneres and actress Kerri Kenney-Silver who gave speeches.

The 39-year-old singer-songwriter paid tribute to her husband, former professional motocross rider Carey Hart, saying: "I literally would not be standing up here if it weren't for you".

Pink then turned to her children, seven-year-old Willow and two-year-old Jameson, and said: "You guys are my stars and I would never shine without you."

The music star reflected on her career since signing her first record deal 23 years ago.

She said: "I thought I could have a hit record but I never thought in my wildest dreams that I could have two decades of this insane fun with a family of people I love."

Pink, real name Alecia Beth Moore, added: "Today for me is a celebration of something that my dad taught me, and that is: to thine own self be true.

"If you walk along this boulevard and you look at these names, there is a power in that. To thine own self be true."

"There is a power in believing in yourself, there is a power in not giving up on life and on not giving up on yourself and there's a power in making a decision that while you may not be the best that ever did it, you may not be the prettiest, or the tallest or the funniest or the most talented or whatever it is you tell yourself you're not, if you're stubborn and you don't give up and you work really hard, no-one else can ever be you."

Ellen DeGeneres said in her speech: "As an artist, Pink has found the perfect balance. Her voice is strong but not overpowering, her attitude is rebellious but not threatening, her performances are dangerous but awe-inspiring.

"I have got to know Pink over the years and I honestly can't think of anyone more deserving of this star. Even though she's a huge international star she is the most normal, grounded person you will ever meet."
