Pink Gets Discharged From The Hospital After Having A Hellish Week Of Sickness While On Tour
The past week or two for Pink has been absolutely miserable. The 38-year-old singer has been on tour for most of the year, and last week she had to cancel/postpone her concert at Sydney’s Qudos Bank Arena due to “an upper respiratory infection.”
Doctors ordered her to take a break, but even the extra rest didn’t help her. She continued to feel bad, and on Monday (Aug 6) she was hospitalized for dehydration. She was quickly treated and dismissed, but then had to be readmitted for a gastric virus. It’s clear her body was completely wrecked and probably attacking itself.
The good news is that she has been released from the hospital and she is expected to return to the stage this weekend. Doctors say she needs to drink lots of liquids and rest all this week.
The crazy thing about this is that when she first postponed the concert, the paparazzi accused her of faking the illness because they saw her sitting on the beach with her children. Pink was NOT about to let them spread rumors about her, especially not rumors that questioned her insane work effort.
She fired back on Instagram, and her response was golden. You can read the full response below. By the way, several celebrities came to her defense as well. Justin Timberlake commented and said you will not find a harder working person in Hollywood, and you know what? We believe him. Pink is a complete badass.
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 we 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. 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, 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. What they don’t show you in this picture is me drinking water and lying down while my friends try to entertain my 7 year old who is asking me why these creepy men are surrounding us and pacing back and forth and taking pictures of her every move. I will see everyone tomorrow whether I’m better or not, and the postponed show will be rescheduled. As I said, I’m sorry to the real fans who this situation has affected. Onwards and upwards.
But even the best need to rest. Treat yo’self, Pink!
