Pink's friends are so sick of calling her by her stage name, they've now re-christened her Fat Mama.

The GET THE PARTY STARTED singer, real name ALECIA MOORE, is perfectly happy with her unconventional moniker, because it's used only by her longtime pals in her native Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

She says, "All my friends used to call me Pink, but - now that's a mainstream nickname - they've rejected it.

"They call me Fat Mama, my nickname back in Philly."
