Pink Shuts Down Rumors She Canceled Show for Beach Vacation
Pink, who's never struggled to stand her ground, is battling back against rumors that she canceled a show in Australia to take a lazy beach vacation — there is much more to the story, she insists.
A paparazzi photo manifested Thursday (August 2) that featured the "Beautiful Trauma" singer on the coastline with the caption "Pink's Sydney concert cancelled as she chills in Bryon Beach." Pink called the note simplistic in a corresponding Instagram post, and noted the vacation had been planned since last year.
Secondly, her family members had been sick, she noted, and needed time to rest.
"I don't need to clear this up, but out of respect for my fans I will attempt it," she noted. "I scheduled this tour meticulously, trying to do what was best for my children, while also putting on the best and most physically demanding and beautiful show of my life. This break in Byron has been scheduled since 2017, as a way to get outside the hotel and the winter and have some time with my children."
Pink added that she's been struggling to make sure her husband and children stay well, and noted that the paparazzi overlooked the not-so-glamorous moments of doctor's visits, coughs and sore throats during her trip Down Under.
"You can think whatever you want, it's your right, but I have never taken advantage of any one in my entire life," she wrote. "I have never f----- off while disrespecting hard working people who spend money to come see me play. I have never phoned in a single tour, I have an impeccable record for not cancelling. I mother with everything I have whilst handling all the rest. The snark in this is unbelievable and makes me long for a nicer world. I'm doing the absolute best I can, and you can believe it or not."
And for the most part, fans supported the rock star.
"People seriously suck sometimes. You’re a badass momma and artist. Momming is hard enough on its own, I don’t know how you do it," one follower wrote, while another noted "You don't have to explain yourself because of these assh----. You are one of the hardest performers out there. Anyone that is a true fan would know better that you by no means would screw your fans and cancel a concert. Saw you in Philly a couple years ago. Best concert I ever been to."
