Pink gave her fans a health update on how she’s doing after being released from the hospital following a gastric virus along with a warning to the paparazzi.
“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,” the 38-year-old singer shared in a post on Instagram Tuesday night after canceling her second show in Sydney, Australia.

“I was discharged from hospital last night, and am following doctors orders of liquids and rest,” she added, mentioning that her shows are very physical. “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,” she continued, before dropping a warning to paparazzi who had accused the singer of canceling one of her shows last week to relax at the beach with her family. “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,” the “Funhouse” singer explained, while thanking everyone for their “patience, compassion, and support” and praising the “doctors and nurses at St Vincent’s Hospital” for taking such good care of her and her family.
