P!nk Pays Tribute To Britney Spears As Divorce News Surfaces, Spears Breaks Silence On Split

In a whirlwind of emotions, the pop music scene has been abuzz with heartfelt gestures and candid revelations. P!nk, the celebrated artist known for her fiery spirit and empowering anthems, took a poignant step to show her support for Britney Spears amidst the news of her divorce from Sam Asghari.

During her performance at Detroit’s Comerica Park on Wednesday night, Pink showcased her solidarity by altering the lyrics of her 2001 hit Don’t Let Me Get Me. Originally penned with lines about comparison to Spears, Pink‘s lyrics underwent a transformation. She swapped the words, singing, “Tired of being compared to sweet Britney Spears.” The change was met with enthusiastic cheers from the crowd, a heartwarming display of unity among pop icons.

Pink has been vocal about her protective stance towards Spears, asserting in a previous interview with PEOPLE that she’s always seen herself as a big sister to the star. “I’m very protective of her, and she’s the sweetest person in the world,” Pink shared. “I wish her well. I cover her in light all day long.”

The gesture unfolded against the backdrop of Spears‘ own response to her divorce. The Circus singer took to Instagram to candidly address her followers. Spears acknowledged the split from Asghari, expressing her gratitude for the support she’s received and her relief in no longer enduring emotional pain. She stated, “I’ve been playing it strong for way too long and my Instagram may seem perfect, but it’s far from reality, and I think we all know that!!!”

Britney Spears shared her struggle with maintaining a facade of strength, acknowledging the desire to express her emotions authentically but recognizing the complexities in doing so. She reflected on the pressure to be unwavering and resilient, a sentiment that many can resonate with.
