Pink is not only touring but she's also parenting.


The last thing she needed was criticism as she attempts to handle mum life and taking to the stage.


Her two adorable children, seven-year-old Willow Sage and one-year-old Jameson have accompanied her whilst she performs across the globe.


Trying to juggle performances and the challenges that being a mum brings, seems to have caught up with Pink.

The star penned the reality of balancing both in the midst of cancelling an Australian concert after being ill and receiving criticism from an unknown publication. 


The shot shows the 38-year-old on a beach with Willow and the headline reads: "Pink's Sydney Concert cancelled as she chills in Byron Bay."


In a lengthy response on Instagram, the mum told fans that the picture didn’t show you the difficulty she had “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.”


The picture she said also didn’t depict the fact that she had been “sick twice.”

The singer still managed to be a super mum and push through the first time the illness struck despite her demanding schedule.


Pink explained just how hard the second time around had been and how that snapshot couldn’t have ever have shown fans the truth behind the mum’s life: 


”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," she wrote.

Defending herself, she said that she “never taken advantage of anyone” and she mothers “with everything I have whilst handling all the rest.”


To conclude her post, she addressed the cancellation of the show and how her friends came to her rescue entertaining her daughter whilst she was attempting to get better.


"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 seven-year-old,” she said.

The incredible mum added that she will be going ahead with her show the following day, “whether I’m better or not” and the cancelled show will be rescheduled.


Other stars were quick to comment messages of support for the singer, including fellow parent and performer, Justin Timberlake.

The 37-year-old shared nothing but praise for Pink in the comment section by saying:


"You won't find a harder working, more authentically talented, and more thankful for her place on that stage and her fans than this woman."


" a parent on tour as well, and an artist who LOVES their fans just as much and wants to give them an unprecedented experience, and is currently battling an injury, a sinus infection and trying to be the Dad I want to be too?? I say HATS OFF to you my friend."


Justin who shared the stage twice with Pink during her tour finished off by wishing her a speedy recovery.



Pink's post has racked up almost a million likes in 24 hours and we aren't one bit surprised.


There's no denying that she is one incredible strong mum and we wish her a speedy recovery.
