SYDNEY, NSW (CelebrityAccess) — Pop singer Pink took to social media on Friday to defend herself from grumpy fans after she was photographed lounging on a beach after canceling a concert in Sydney.
Pink was slated to perform at the first of nine concerts at Byron Bay in Sydney on Thursday, but canceled the show on Thursday, citing a respiratory infection.
However, after a paparazzi photo of Pink, and her seven-year-old daughter went viral on the internet, she felt the need to defend herself from the insinuation.
In a long post to her Instagram account, she wrote:
“I don’t need to clear this up, but out of respect for my fans I will attempt it. “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.”
“I’ve already been sick twice (kids as well) on this Australian tour but the first time I got sick, I was able to push through. This time, what these parasite paparazzi don’t show you, is two doctor visits in Byron on two consecutive days, antibiotics, steroids, Vick’s, nose spray, throat spray, more steroids, NyQuil, a screaming baby in the middle of the night, every night, while mama gives him warm baths and tells her daughter everything is fine,”
“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 fucked off while disrespecting hard working people who spend money to come see me play. I have never phoned in a single tour.”
Pink is currently set to return to the stage on Saturday night.
