Pink is riding high off of two recent Grammy nominations (for Best Pop Vocal Album for "Funhouse" and Best Female Pop Vocal for "Sober"), and now she's talking to Women's Health magazine about how she keeps in shape, her nicknames, and her relationship to Britney Spears.

In the January / February issue of the fitness and wellness mag, amongst other topics, Pink shared her secrets for staying in such great shape. So what's her secret to maintaining her feminine yet strong look?

"Last year, when I was going through my separation [from competitive motocross racer Carey Hart], I was in Malibu running every day just to keep from burying myself in the sand - to get out, feel the ocean," she explained. "You've got to make yourself feel good at times like that. Even if it's a pain in the ass and you hate working out, the endorphins and the stress you bring down [help]. You feel strong, healthy. You feel good about yourself, your jeans fit."

She was also asked if she was upset with the on-again / off-again-in-their-relationship husband while she was making her last album. "No, I wasn't [Big sigh]," she told them. "Long-term relationships are a layered onion. There's something about him I love, and I want him to be OK, even if he's not with me."

The mag also wanted to know if she has an on-stage alternative persona, similar to Beyonce's "Sasha Fierce"? "No! Pink is just me," she replied, laughing. But adding, "Chi-Chi Marie is my Sasha Fierce. My girlfriends in New York named me that. All of their middle names are Marie. Mine's Beth, but to them I'm Chi-Chi Marie."

And what's with the long-term rumor that she feuds with fellow pop singer Britney Spears?

"I've always liked Britney," Pink said. "I swear to God, I've stuck up for Britney since the beginning. She and I have talked about it. My point was, 'Stop comparing he to her, because we're different animals.'"
