Just last week, Pink announced to the public just how tough it has been for her and her family on the road.

 

The mum has recently been touring Australia and posted about her forced decision to postpone a concert due to her and her children’s illness.

 

“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.”

 

 

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.

The rockstar explained how physically demanding her show has been and that she was “doing the absolute best” she could.

 

Pink, once again, tried to push through the pain and sickness to deliver fans the amazing, jaw-dropping performance they have been waiting for.

 

However, this time she may have pushed herself too far.

 

The singer was rushed to the hospital just 20 minutes before she was due to leave for the concert’s soundcheck on Monday due to “excruciating pain”.

According to Live Nation, the mum was admitted and treated for severe dehydration on Sunday. Then was forced to return to the hospital the next day, just before her scheduled concert.

 

She was then diagnosed with a gastric virus and admitted for treatment until her hospital release last night.

 

Pink explained how physical her performances are: “I flip, dance, fly, harness, silk, and scream my way through a total shit show of awesomeness (no pun intended).

 

“I think all of you deserve the full show and me at my best. Our next show will be Saturday, and until then I will be drinking green tea, and spending time with my kids.”

 

 

Hi beautiful Sydney people. First, I want to say thank you to all of the kind people out there for your well wishes for my speedy recovery. On Monday, we were absolutely planning on going ahead with the show, and about 20 minutes before I left for soundcheck, I was rushed to the hospital, in excruciating pain. That was the reason for the late cancellation. It was out of anyone’s control, and of course, wasn’t planned that way. I was discharged from hospital last night, and am following doctors orders of liquids and rest. A lot of you know how physical my shows are, and that I don’t just stand in front a microphone and sing. I flip, dance, fly, harness, silk, and scream my way through a total shit show of awesomeness (no pun intended). Therefore, I need to be physically healthy and well in order to perform this show. I think all of you deserve the full show and me at my best. Our next show will be Saturday, and until then I will be drinking green tea, and spending time with my kids. That’s a warning to paparazzi, you might actually see me walking upright outside of my hotel room cage with two little children, and another warning: I might even smile. Not too much, though. I’ll try to control the smiling. My sincere apologies to any of the ticket holders that this has affected, the rescheduled dates will be announced today. Thank you for your patience, compassion, and support. I look forward to rocking out with all of you as we have done for many many years. All of my love. Pink I also want to thank the amazing doctors and nurses at St Vincent’s Hospital for taking such good care of me and getting me home to my kids.

Pink continued to warn fans that she will probably be caught on camera by the paparazzi and to not misconstrue spending time with her kids as lying about her illness.

 

"I'll try to control the smiling," she quipped to the out-of-control tabloids that may contort her family time, clearly upset at the previous way they handled the situation.

 

The mum seems to feel immense pressure to 'act normal' in front of the cameras with her kids, to the point where she must mention the possibility of feigned happiness in photos.

 

The singer was  absolutely heartbroken that she could not be there for her fans, but she needs to put her health first so she can continue to finish her tour.

 

She concluded, “thank you for your patience, compassion, and support. I look forward to rocking out with all of you as we have done for many many years. All of my love.”

 

The rescheduled concert dates will be announced later today.

 

We hope the singer and mum continues to recover smoothly. She is a complete rockstar on stage and for pushing through her health issues for her fans.
