Justin Timberlake Defends Pink After Post-Cancellation Beach Photos Surface

Justin Timberlake is coming to Pink's defense as an artist and parent after photos of her on the beach post-concert cancellation surface.

Pink, who is being criticized for "chilling" on the beach at Byron Bay, Australia, after postponing her Sydney concert due to illness, explained to her fans what the photos didn't show. 

I don’t need to clear this up, but out of respect for my fans I will attempt it. I scheduled this tour meticulously, trying to do what was best for my children, while also putting on the best and most physically demanding and beautiful show of my life. This break in Byron has been scheduled since 2017, as a way to get outside the hotel and the winter and have some time with my children. I’ve already been sick twice (kids as well)on this Australian tour, but the first time we got sick, I was able to push through. This time, what these parasite paparazzi don’t show you, is two doctor visits in Byron on two consecutive days, antibiotics, steroids, Vick’s, nose spray, throat spray, more steroids, NyQuil, a screaming baby in the middle of the night, every night, while mama gives him warm baths and tells her daughter everything is fine. You can think whatever you want, it’s your right, but I have never taken advantage of any one in my entire life. 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. What they don’t show you in this picture is me drinking water and lying down while my friends try to entertain my 7 year old who is asking me why these creepy men are surrounding us and pacing back and forth and taking pictures of her every move. I will see everyone tomorrow whether I’m better or not, and the postponed show will be rescheduled. As I said, I’m sorry to the real fans who this situation has affected. Onwards and upwards.

"I scheduled this tour meticulously, trying to do what was best for my children, while also putting on the best and most physically demanding and beautiful show of my life," the singer wrote on Instagram. "I've already been sick twice (kids as well) on this Australian tour, but the first time we got sick, I was able to push through.

Timberlake, who has shared the stage twice with Pink, replied to her Instagram post with a very relatable message (via Entertainment Tonight): "I'm here to tell you that you won't find a harder working, more authentically talented, and more thankful for her place on that stage and her fans than this woman," he said. "And NOW...as a parent on tour as well, and an artist who LOVES their fans just as much and wants to give them an unprecedented experience...AND is currently battling an injury, a sinus infection, and trying to be the DAD I want to be too?? I say HATS OFF to you, my friend. I don't know how Moms/Artists like you exist." 

Timberlake had a message for the paps, too. 

"Go make up some fodder about somebody who's half-assin' it. NOT a real one."
