Pink has always maintained her tough chick image – but even she has admitted that contracting Coronavirus was the scariest thing she had ever experienced…
Pink opened up to Ellen in an emotional interview about her experience with the virus, which she told fans she and 3-year-old son Jameson contracted last month.
(Despite all living together, her 8-year-old daughter Willow, and husband Carey Hart, did not appear to have any symptoms.)
The 40-year-old singer, who revealed that she had asthma all her life, said that her son felt sick first before she suffered with breathing difficulties in the middle of the night…
“At a certain point around March 18, March 19, March 20, when his fever was staying and going up. I woke up in the middle of the night and couldn’t breathe,” she told Ellen.
“That’s when I started to get really scared.
“You can’t help but watch the news every day. Like all the crazy stuff I did and this is the way it ends?”
She then told Ellen that the worst moment was when her son began to complain about chest pains and was also having trouble breathing…
“That’s the point where you are just kind of like, ok are we going to the hospital? Like what are we doing right now? Because this is the scariest thing I’ve ever ever been through in my whole life.”
While her fans and the majority of social media were sympathetic when Pink first opened up about her experience with COVID-19, others were quick to judge, criticize, and resent her for being able to get hold of a test when so many others have been unable to do so.
Naturally, Pink was quick to address the controversy…
“It’s very controversial to people that I was able to get my hands on a test,” she continued.
“I would say two things to that – you should be angry that I can get a test and you can’t, but being angry at me is not going to help anything. It’s not going to solve the issue.
“We should work together to try and change that. Tell me anybody with a sick 3-year-old that if they get their hands on a test they wouldn’t take it, and if they say that I’m calling bulls**t.”
Does she have a point?
Two weeks after testing positive for the novel virus, Pink and Jameson were re-tested, and the results came back negative.
She then donated $1 million to help healthcare workers and those who don’t have access to the same help as she did.
