Pink said, “I can’t do it, I hate this I can’t do the song, I’m sorry.” Pink said she’s been trying to ‘power through her illness’, she’s been trying to rest, but it’s been difficult to rest, with all the pre game prep that is involved.

She posted on her official Instagram page, “ Trying to practice the flu away. I’ve been waiting to sing this song since 1991, when I saw my idol Whitney Houston own this song. And now, my chance has finally come. And it just happens that this chance comes when I have two petri dish kids who literally cough into my mouth, and rub their snot on my cheek. You can’t write this stuff I swear. And here we are, I’ve arrived at one my dreams and it’s slowly becoming a nightmare. I will tell you this is one of the biggest honors of my life.” Pink has been married to motor-cross racer Carey Hart since 2006. They have a daughter Willow, 6, and son Jameson 13 months.
