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.
