It’s hard to imagine P!nk, a singer who is known for her crazy on-stage performances (of the acrobatic kind) and fitness, would ever be brought down.
However, it is exactly for that reason that the 41-year-old singer says that the COVID-19 virus is scary and cannot be taken lightly. In a sit down with Heart Radio’s Mark Wright, P!nk – born Alecia Beth Moore – recounted her experience with the virus.
“This is going to sound crazy, but we had COVID last year, very early in March, and it was really bad and I rewrote my will…”

She went on to say that she believed that she and her then three-year-old son, Jameson – who also tested positive for the virus back in March last year – wouldn’t make it through, sharing:
“I called my best friend and I said, “I just need you to tell Willow how much I loved her.”
P!nk, who shares daughter Willow Sage and son Jameson with her husband of 15 years Carey Hart, was struck by the thought of leaving her children behind, explaining:
“As a parent, you think about, you know, what am I leaving for my kid? What am I teaching them? And are they going to make it in this world, this crazy world that we live in now? And what do I need to tell them if this is the last time I ever get to tell them anything?”
Thankfully, both P!nk and Jameson are now in the clear. The singer will soon be releasing All I Know So Far: The Setlist, with All I Know So Far being the title track as well as both the name of the singer’s upcoming ninth album and the title for the musical documentary featuring her. The documentary will follow P!nk on her blockbuster ‘Beautiful Trauma World Tour’, while the 16-track album will feature live takes on iconic hits like “Just Like a Pill,” “Just Give Me a Reason” and “So What” as well as her MTV Video Vanguard Award Speech, covers of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “We Are the Champions” and her heart-swelling duet with daughter Willow, “Cover Me in Sunshine.”

At present, whether or not the documentary will include P!nk’s battle with COVID-19 remains to be confirmed, but, P!nk has called the project the “most authentic” music documentary she’s seen. P!nk has previously spoken about her and her son’s experience with the virus, in both an Instagram post and in a segment with TV show host Ellen DeGeneres. Using the Instagram post to reveal the diagnosis, at the time, she criticised the way that the US government handled the outbreak. She later told Ellen:
“It’s very controversial to people that I was able to get my hands on a test. I would say two things to that. I would say, you should be angry that I can get a test and you can’t, but being angry at me isn’t going to help anything. It’s not going solve the issue of the fact that you can’t get your hands on a test. You should be angry about that. And we should work together to try and change that.”
