American Idol may be able to tell their contestants what they can and can't sing, but they can't censor Pink!
Reportedly, when the American Idol powers-that-be realized the song made references to self-love, they asked Pink to alter the lyrics to make them more appropriate for the "family-friendly" show.
Well-placed sources tell TMZ that Pink wasn't willing to compromise her artistic integrity and agreed to sing her last single, "Who Knew," instead.
If Idol really wanted to protect audiences, there's only one person they should have censored - Sanjaya Malakar.
Calls to reps for P!nk and "Idol" were not immediately returned.
