Don’t hold back, Pink!!!
For better or worse, Pink is always exactly who she says she is, with no fake attitude or anything — and today is another great example of that, as she’s dealing head-on with a major concert controversy Down Under!

Back on Wednesday, the Raise Your Glass singer announced she had to postpone an August 3 concert date on her worldwide tour in the Australian city of Sydney due to sickness — but when she was spotted later lounging about on an Australian beach, the local media ripped her apart for it.
Fortunately for everyone, Pink didn’t take this too kindly — and after getting ripped in the Australian tabloids, she responded with this fiery Instagram post (below):
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.A post shared by P!NK (@pink) on Aug 2, 2018 at 9:08pm PDT

Self-care days are so necessary and you don’t have to explain yourself but it’s fucking great when you DO explain yourself and call out the gossip mags all the same!
