Pink: ‘The fact that we have access to modern medicine is an absolute blessing’

In this week’s Conversation with Chris Wallace, pop star P!nk joins CNN anchor Chris Wallace to discuss her new album, the messages in her music, and how she finds balance as a mother and a musician.

Wallace: Many of you are fans, but the song that first identified you was Lady Marmalade in 2001 with Christina Aguilera, Maya and Lil’ Kim. At some point I read that Christina wanted to fight with you (she did). If that had happened, you would have kicked her ass because I saw this video.

P!NK: No, maybe, but, well, you just didn’t know our personalities. Our personalities weren’t mixed at all at the time, but that was fine.

Chris Wallace: So she really wanted to do it with you?

P!NK: She was mad at me sitting in her chair, so she was trying to shut down the whole production. And I didn’t know I was sitting in her chair. Also, I was 15 and homeless, so you can’t talk to me in any way. So I know, you picked the wrong one. But it’s over, it’s over.

Wallace: I see, it’s a pretty interesting story.

P!NK: Interesting story, probably every day. in every workplace. It’s just that some people just don’t get along, but you get it, you get what’s important, you embrace it, and you move on.

Wallace: You should see me and Wolf Blitzer, it always goes on.

P!NK: I can imagine (laughs).

Wallace: You are currently running an advertising campaign to get people with risk factors to take COVID more seriously. So how bad was it when you got COVID with a history of asthma?

P!NK: I used a nebulizer for the first time in 30 years. I was so scared. In retrospect, my son was actually the sickest. When your child is, he’s vomiting projectiles and screaming, covered in rashes and saying he can’t breathe. So, as any parent knows, when your child is sick, it’s game over.

Wallace: What is the real message you are trying to convey?

P!NK: The real message is that the fact that we have access to modern medicine is an absolute blessing. I mean, this isn’t about politics….it’s not even telling you to get a jab or anything else. I say make a plan. Take care of yourself, make a plan, and see your doctor. Know if there are any health risks. One of my best friend’s dads passed away while I was on FaceTime with him at the hospital. This is not a joke, nor is it a Republican versus Democrat issue. However, I am lucky to have access to medication if I need it.
