Pink has never phoned it in, she’s never faked injury or illness and she has zero time for “parasitic” Australian paparazzi.

The U.S. pop star hit back after she was targeted by “snarky” tabloids and paps who implied she bailed on her opening Beautiful Trauma Sydney date to hit the beach.

Just one day after postponing last Friday’s show at Qudos Bank Arena due to an “upper respiratory infection,” Pink (real name Alecia Moore) was snapped with her family relaxing on the beach in Byron Bay.  A handful of titles ran with the story and the criticism stung.

The “So What” singer fired off a lengthy post to clear-up matters and assure  fans she wasn’t taking the easy route. “You can think whatever you want, it’s your right, but I have never taken advantage of any one in my entire life,” she wrote on Instagram. “I have never fucked off while disrespecting hard working people who spend money to come see me play. I have never phoned in a single tour, I have an impeccable record for not cancelling. I mother with everything I have whilst handling all the rest. The snark in this is unbelievable and makes me long for a nicer world. I’m doing the absolute best I can, and you can believe it or not.”

Fellow parent-on-tour Justin Timberlake also jumped to her defence. Read her full Instagram post below.
