Pink Rushed To The Hospital After Onstage Accident
Pink received a real-life scare Thursday when she was rushed to a hospital after falling from a harness that suspended her above stage at a concert in Nuremberg, Germany. According to Gossip Cop, the acrobatics enthusiast fell from the harness directly onto a steel barricade; the show ended immediately.
Ever upbeat, the 30-year-old singer took time to tweet her fans while riding in the ambulance to the hospital: "to all my nurnberg fans...I am embarrassed and very sorry. I'm in ambulance now but I will b fine." While exact details regarding what song she was performing at the time have not been released, it is likely she was performing her trapeze/ aerial-silk routine to "Glitter in the Air," a show-stopping number for which she received a standing ovation at this year's Grammy Awards.
Pink (real name: Alicia Moore) later returned to her Twitter account to explain how the accident happened: "[I] didn't get clipped in2 harness correctly, drug me off stage, fell in2 barricade." Amazingly enough, Moore kept fans updated throughout her hospital visit. "Nothings broken," she reported. "No fluid in the lungs, just seriously sore. I made that barricade my b*tch!!!" Thanx nurnberg :("
Moore's on-again, off-again husband Carey Hart also chimed in via Twitter, adding that his gal was out of the hospital and on the mend. "@Pink is all good," he tweeted. "Just got the sh-- kicked out of her by the barrier. Steel barrier-1 Pink-0"
The singer has not yet revealed if her bumps and bruises will keep her from upcoming performances on her Funhouse Summer Carnival Tour, but she is scheduled to continue through Eastern Europe, making stops in Germany, Russia, the Czech Republic, Finland, Sweden, Denmark and Norway.
