On This Day in #PinkHistory… 4th February 2018, Pink performed the National Anthem at the Super Bowl
Prior to Justin Timberlake playing the Super Bowl halftime show, Pink sang the national anthem, much to the delight of many Americans.
Although an impressive performance, some fans were left wondering why the singer was perhaps not performing at full capacity.
Before singing the song, Pink was seen spitting out something. Turns out, that was a throat lozenge (not gum as some believed), as the singer currently has the flu.
Responding to one critical Tweet (now deleted) saying Pink “sucked”, she wrote: “Yeah but at least I suck while singing our countries national anthem, and you just suck by yourself on a dirty couch.”
Pink also clarified that “It was a throat lozenge” adding: “All of your prayers and well wishes and candles got me through. Thank you for all of your love and support. We [emoji hear] you.”
