‘You Just Suck’: Pink Defends Her Super Bowl Performance

The singer was sick with the flu while performing.

Despite smothering with the flu, Pink blew us away with her rendition of the American national anthem at the Super Bowl on Sunday.

Pink told her Instagram followers on Saturday that she was trying to “practice away the flu” before “one of the biggest honours of her life”, singing the national anthem at the Super Bowl.

Trying to practice the flu away. I’ve been waiting to sing this song since 1991 when I saw my idol, Whitney Houston, own this song. And now, my chance has finally come. And it just so happens that this chance comes when I have two small Petri dish kids who literally cough INTO MY MOUTH and rub their snot on my cheek. You can’t write this stuff I swear! And here we are. I’ve arrived at another one of my dreams which is slowly becoming a sort of nightmare. I will tell you, this is one of the biggest honors of my life, singing this song in front of my family, my military family, my dad and brother and step mama and family and the world. And the EAGLES!?!?! I promise I will do my best, as I always do. As far as the gremlins that got me into this mess, you can cough at me for the rest of your lives. If it’s a contest, babies, you win. #spreadthelove #spreadthegerms #pleasegivememyvoiceback #ificansingimgonnakillit

The singer is known to be less than tolerant with her haters, so it was no surprise she clapped back when one Twitter user criticized her performance.

The singer was also criticized for spitting out her throat lozenge before she began singing, which at the time people believed was gum.

After her performance, Pink shared a photo of her and her daughter on Twitter, thanking fans for their support.
