With Pink hot on the promotional trail for her new documentary ‘All I Know So Far,’ the singer’s latest stop was Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live.
During her interview, anchor Andy Cohen quizzed about a topic many have been curious about for years: the Super Bowl Halftime Show.
It’s been reported that the airborne singer turned down the offer to perform at the 2019 event – which eventually went on to be headlined by Maroon 5 (and we all know that went).
Ever candid, the star revealed exactly what went down.
Her words await below…
Speaking frankly, she shared that – while she “would have had fun doing it” she wasn’t comfortable with the nitpicking that tends to come along the gig. She also as well as her sentiments that the 2019 show should have been headlined by Atlanta’s Hip-Hop elite given it was taking place in the city.
Perhaps most notable, however, was her comment: “I probably would have taken the knee.” An action that would have been in solidarity with footballer Colin Kaepernick who has effectively been inactive since his kneeling protest.
It’s a tough one.
Her reasons for not accepting are super commendable. She’s spot on when it comes to that particular show being best suited to stars of the ATL scene, as well the necessity of her spotlighting injustice (e.g. kneeling) had she taken on the gig. Especially being in a position of privilege.
At the same time, there are few performers as seasoned as Pink left. So, she is as worthy of a Halftime headliner as they come and it’s certain she would absolutely smash it.
Here’s hoping the stars align for her to rock the show in the future.
