You can always expect a colorful response from Pink!
The singer had already apologized for canceling her April 22 concert in Birmingham, England, due to illness, but apparently that wasn't enough. So on Saturday, Pink fired back at those disgruntled fans who were upset with her for getting sick.
"I sincerely apologize, AGAIN, for any inconvenience this may have caused you," she wrote on her blog. "Sincerely. I actually rode by the venue, and saw some of you in line, and there was not a f--king thing I could do about any of it. Except cry. My heart was absolutely broken."
"I am getting a lot of hate mail from some of you, not all," she lamented. "But to those of you that expect and feel entitled to perfection; have a look at my track record—please—in general for tours past. I have an incredible record. I do not cancel and I do not take it for granted how much trouble people go to—from spending hard earned money they don't have, to travel expenses and time and planning, etc. I take NONE of it for granted, EVER. "
"I am a human being, therefore I am able to catch illness," she went on. "It is beyond my control—and I can't apologize for that. And you know what I've been performing through the last week? ROTA virus. Look it up. I challenge any one of you to do what I do while sick with that. You couldn't do it."
She explained it saddened her that some fans don't give her "the benefit of the doubt," even though she and her team "did everything we could" to reschedule the show. (Sadly, they couldn't: "It's a logistical nightmare that is again, out of my control," she explained.)
Moving forward, Pink explained the next time she schedules dates, she'll have to say to herself, "If, God forgive I have to cancel one show, those fans will turn on me like rabid dogs and question the moral fabric of my character." (Woof.)
But Pink knows the majority of her fans are "loyal and understanding," and to them she reiterated that she was "so sorry if I've hurt you in any way."
She concluded, eloquently, "For the rest of you—kindly kiss my entire almost back to healthy ass."
