Pink taken to the hospital after concert fall, but says 'full steam ahead'
Image Credit: Marc Broussely/Redferns/Getty ImagesWhile performing her hit “So What” at a concert in Germany last night, pop star Pink fell from the elaborate trapeze set-up she was hanging from over the stage. In a YouTube video captured by a fan, Pink appears to start ascending in the trapeze hoist, then falls down, before yelling into her mic, “Oh God. Oh f— that hurt.” According to reports, Pink fell out of the harness she was in and was dragged into a barricade.
The singer later dispatched several missives about the incident on her Twitter feed. First she wrote: “To all my nurnberg fans- I am so so so sorry to end the show that way.I am embarassed and very sorry. I’m in ambulance now but I will b fine.” Then, about an hour later, she assured fans she was alright: “Ok all my lovers out there- nothings broken, no fluid in the lungs, just seriously sore. I made that barricade my b*tch!!!! Thanx nurnberg:(“
Then, about 8:30 a.m. this morning, she wrote: “okay. full steam ahead people.no pain, no gain. or is it no brain, no pain? either way, i will be on that stage, even if i have to crawl:)” And followed that up with a thank you to fans: “and a HUMONGOUS thank you to everyone who sent their love and concern, nikki is also doing fine. i will buy her an ice cream later.” Hark: It does indeed sound like she’s fine. Whew! Calls to her representatives for further comment have not yet been returned.
