Pink Responds to Hate Mail Over Canceled Concert: “Kiss My A**!”

Truth rating: 10

Pink is on the mend, but she’s sick of receiving hate mail over getting ill and having to cancel a recent concert. As Gossip Cop previously reported, the Grammy winner had to back out of her Birmingham, England concert on April 22 after coming down with a serious respiratory and ear infection. The cancellation and announcement that the show won’t be made up apparently didn’t sit well with some concertgoers, who fired off angry missives to the singer.

On Saturday, Pink took to her official site to write a strongly-worded response to the complaints. “I had absolutely no choice in the matter, no control over the circumstances, and physically could not get my sick a** on stage, because of an ear infection and chest infection all at the same time, and even a doctor told me I could not go on stage whether I wanted to or not,” explains the songstress. She continues, “I actually rode by the venue, and saw some of you in line, and there was not a f**king thing I could do about any of it. Except cry. My heart was absolutely broken.”

“But to those of you that expect and feel entitled to perfection; Have a look at my track record- please- in general- for tours past,” writes Pink, noting, “I have an incredible record. I do not cancel and I do not take it for granted how much trouble people go to- from spending hard earned money they don’t have, to travel expenses and time and planning, etc. I take NONE of it for granted, EVER.”

She adds later, “And guess what? I might actually get sick again on this tour. Can you imagine it? How dare I even think that? I have a two year old who is building her immune system by getting sick all over the place. And the fact that I even went on tour while being a full time mom is a miracle in itself.”

“The next time I schedule dates- ill have to say to myself- ‘if, God forbid I have to cancel one show, those fans will turn on me like rabid dogs and question the moral fabric of my character,'” the pop star writes. “For the loyal and understanding fans- I am so so sorry if I’ve hurt you in any way,” concludes Pink. “For the rest of you- Kindly kiss my entire almost back to healthy a**.”
