Pink hospitalized after stage fall
Pink received a real-life scare Thursday when she was rushed to a hospital after falling from a harness that suspended her above stage at a concert in Nuremberg, Germany. According to Gossip Cop (who has video of the incident), the acrobatic enthusiast fell from the harness directly onto a steel barricade; the show ended immediately.
Keeping a sense of optimism, the punk pop star took time to tweet her fans while riding in the ambulance to the hospital: “to all my nurnberg fans…I am embarrassed and very sorry. I’m in ambulance now but I will b fine.” She was performing “So What” for the crowd and the performance was said to have been similar to her trapeze/ aerial-silk routine to “Glitter in the Air,” a number for which she received a standing ovation and a Flashdance-esque drenching at this year’s Grammy Awards.
Pink later tweeted some more to explain how the accident happened: “[I] didn’t get clipped in2 harness correctly, drug me off stage, fell in2 barricade.” She stayed attached to her phone updating all through her hospital visit.
“Nothings broken,” she reported. “No fluid in the lungs, just seriously sore. I made that barricade my bitch!!!” Thanx nurnberg :(”
The sometimes hubby Carey Hart, whose had a few broken bones himself, also chimed in via Twitter, adding that his girl was out of the hospital and on the mend. “@Pink is all good,” he tweeted. “Just got the shit kicked out of her by the barrier. Steel barrier-1 Pink-0″
No word yet if her ouchies will keep her from upcoming performances on her Funhouse Summer Carnival Tour, but she is scheduled to continue through Eastern Europe, making stops in Germany, Russia, the Czech Republic, Finland, Sweden, Denmark and Norway. I’m sure she’ll tweet us tomorrow and let us know…
