Last week, Pink stopped by the 92.3 NOW studios in New York City to perform and chat with morning man Ty Bentli. She even brought along her adorable little bundle of joy, Willow, to meet everyone.

What the singer didn’t bring was a need to get all judgmental, the way J.Lo, Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson do on American Idol.

When asked if she would ever want to lend her hand to a show like Idol – grooming, critiquing and helping new talents – Pink says she would but in a more honest, musical form.

“I’ve always had the same reaction to American Idol and now X Factor and now all 80 other shows,” she admits. “It’s a little glossy. The only person that can really be honest is Simon Cowell.”

But what if there were no Simon? Pink would like to be the honest voice, but says “people wouldn’t like it.”

Baby Willow agreed with mommy, screaming “Waaaah!” from the back office after being whisked away by her daddy, Carey Hart.

However if given the chance, Pink says she wouldn’t take the job right now anyway.

“Nah, we’re going on the road,” she says. “We’re gypsies!”

It wasn’t all lip flapping while the Grammy award winning singer was in the building; a few lucky listeners were treated to a short acoustic set from Pink.
