Piper, a Youtuber, who just reached age 14, told TMZ, “The first thing I want everyone to know is that my mom doesn't make me do anything. Quite the opposite, I'm a kid who had a dream and my mom is amazing enough to help me live it out."

Rockelle shared her response with the media outlet after P!nk pondered the over-sexualization of children, and wrote on Twitter, “How many kids like Piper Rockelle are being exploited by their parents? And at what point do the rest of us say … ‘this isn’t okay for a 13 yr old to be posing in a bikini whilst her MOTHER takes the photo?!?!’”

A bikini photo posted by Rockelle on Instagram prompted P!nk’s commentary. However, Piper noted that she did not see anything sexual about a 14-year-old wearing a 2-piece bathing suit.

The teen YouTuber added, “I don't think P!nk has ever seen one of my YouTube videos because if she did she'd see it's just my friends and me having fun and acting like ourselves. The content we make is the kind of stuff anyone can watch."

Additionally, the young social media star discovered that P!nk was also just 14-years-old when she began pursuing her own musical and performance dreams. After doing some research into the singer’s career, Rockelle wonders why the artist has called her out.

She shared, “I know there are kids who are being taken advantage of and that's a real problem, but I'm not one of them."
