Sad news for singer Pink

News confirmed on Instagram.

Singer  Pink has revealed she is battling the flu ahead of her Super Bowl performance.

The 38-year-old is set to sing the National Anthem at the event and took to Instagram to share the sad news.

“Trying to practice the flu away. I’ve been waiting to sing this song since 1991 when I saw my idol, Whitney Houston, own this song. And now, my chance has finally come. And it just so happens that this chance comes when I have two small Petri dish kids who literally cough INTO MY MOUTH and rub their snot on my cheek. You can’t write this stuff I swear!” Pink and husband Carey Hart are parents to Willow, 6, and Jameson, 1.

“And here we are. I’ve arrived at another one of my dreams which is slowly becoming a sort of nightmare. I will tell you, this is one of the biggest honors of my life, singing this song in front of my family, my military family, my dad and brother and step mama and family and the world. And the EAGLES!?!?!” she continued. The songstress, 38, grew up in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, just 30 miles away from Philadelphia, home of the Eagles.

“I promise I will do my best, as I always do. As far as the gremlins that got me into this mess, you can cough at me for the rest of your lives. If it’s a contest, babies, you win,” she wrote, before adding, the hashtags #spreadthelove #spreadthegerms #pleasegivememyvoiceback #ificansingimgonnakillit.
