Pop star Pink was rushed to hospital last night after an air-stunt went wrong at her concert in Nurnberg, Germany.
The harness which was supposed to carry the singer (real name Alecia Moore) above the audience was not fastened properly by her assistants (a fact she visibly makes clear). However, the 29 year old’s calls seemed to fall on deaf ears, as she was launched – unattached – into the audience, crashing hard into the barricade. The concert was subsequently brought to an abrupt close, as she was rushed to hospital.
Pink later wrote on Twitter:
“Nothing’s broken, no fluid in the lungs, just seriously sore.
To all my nurnberg fans – I am so so so sorry to end the show that way. I am embarrassed and very sorry. I’m in ambulance now but I will b fine. Didn’t get clipped in2 harness correctly, drug me off stage, fell in2 barricade. Getting xrays. I hope it at least looked cool!!!”
Peep the video of the accident below…
One has to admire her showmanship, after getting back on stage like that. More power to her!
Randomness: I’ve said it many a time, but Pink – for all her success – is still criminally underrated. Despite her career ups and downs (the majority being ‘ups’), she’s managed to hold her own in the industry for over 10 years now – which is no small feat. If anything, she’s bigger now than she’s ever been.
Though in markedly different ‘lanes’, I have no qualms placing her comfortably beside the likes Beyonce as one of this generation’s premier entertainers. Artistically credible, an amazing LIVE performer, and personality by the bucket-load, Pink rocks!
Side note: It’s not often you see Ms. Moore around these sides, but we love her here at That Grape Juice!
