Pink Is Having A “Brutal” Recovery After Breaking Her Hip
People says that 42-year-old Pink announced on her Instagram page that she had endured a hip break and was going through a “brutal” recovery from her surgery. I, for one, am stunned that the woman who is constantly swinging from the got-damn ceiling like she’s Spider-Man high on a bender has broken a bone.
Pink’s husband, Carey Hart, just had surgery back in September, getting a disc replaced in his lower spine, and Pink was busy nursing him back to health. But now it’s his turn because she messed her hip up in a bad way. Giving a shout out to the people working at the “Steadman Clinic in Vail and Dr. Philippon,” Pink explained that she was recovering from a “brutal” first-week post-surgery. She said that Carey was busy helping her with her meds, and her heavy medical machinery, and keeping her sane during her recovery. And he also helped her get her shooting accuracy back up. Just kidding, that will probably happen a bit later. She wrote in part:
“I am never not completely grateful. It was a brutal first week full of tears and pain med depression, ulcers from meds and constant fevers, but my [husband Carey] brought me through. (No one recovers from surgery like he does, he’s not real.) he brought me coffee in the shower, lugged around my 100 pound CPM contraptions every where I went, dried my tears, cooked me oatmeal, kept track of my meds, got me my phone charger, plugged in my compression machines, took my temp, made the bed, and talked me off the ledge… Life always reminds you that most setbacks are actually just pauses and opportunities to recalibrate and count your blessings… I’m learning the gift of accepting help. My journey will be quick and intentional, And I will make a full recovery. For that I am so blessed.”
Here’s Pink’s post:
Show of hands, who is shocked this woman broke a hip? Shocking that the pop star who spends more time strung up from the rafters than she does on the ground would ever find herself in a situation where she could break a hip. I mean, this performance is on the ground for, like… less than a minute?
But to be fair, Pink didn’t say how she broke her hip. Maybe she slipped at the store, or maybe a certain 14-year-old influencer and their exploitative mother decided to enact revenge on her by pushing Pink down the stairs–we don’t know! But Pink has pushed through the pain before; she sang the National Anthem at the Super Bowl while sick as hell. So I’m sure it’s just a matter of time before she’s flying through the damn air again. A busted hip can’t keep Pink down.
