According to reports, the legendary pop singer, Pink, had to go to a hospital in Sydney, Australia on Monday, after dealing with an onslaught of social media trolling. Her first concert in the Australian city was scheduled for Friday of last week, but she canceled it on account of her doctor’s request.
And on Saturday, she managed to make it through the show despite her ailments. Her promoter, Live Nation, tweeted that Pink had to go to the hospital on Sunday due to dehydration caused by a gastric virus.
The tweet from the promotion company read: “Pink will remain in (the) hospital overnight,” and would have to continue to receive treatment for the sake of her recovery.
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.
Fortunately for her legion of fans, her concert is slated for rescheduling, but the dates have not been announced yet. Pink’s tour of the lonely continent was supposed to last from the 4th of July until the 26th of August.
The last time she found herself Down Under was in 2013 when she performed approximately 46 shows for her Truth About Love tour.

Pink will remain in hospital overnight, continuing her treatment and recovery. pic.twitter.com/YDzt6Aheiy

Previously, Pink faced a barrage of online criticism from many of her fans following surfaced pictures which showed the singer hanging out on the beach.
On her account, the singer said the image wasn’t capable of showing off all of the doctor’s visits, steroids, nose sprays, throat sprays, and NyQuil she had been taking, in addition to “a screaming baby in the middle of the night.”
Moreover, the singer complained about the “creepy men” who circled around her and her daughter on the beach for the sake of taking pictures. At the end of Pink’s post, she took a swipe at those who refused to empathize, and thanked her “real fans,” clearly, in reference to those who criticized her for taking the day off.
