Pink ‘Trying To Practice The Flu Away’ Ahead Of Super Bowl Anthem Performance

Pink is slated to open Sunday’s Super Bowl by performing the U.S. national anthem — is her flu-wracked voice allows it, that is.

In an Instagram post on Saturday, the 38-year-old “Beautiful Trauma” singer revealed she’s been battling a nasty flu bug, but says she’s refusing to let the illness — which she blames on her “Petri dish” children — prevent her from performing.

“Trying to practice the flu away,” she wrote. “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!”

She continued: “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 honours 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!?!?! 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 signed off with a series of hilarious hashtags: “#spreadthe love #spreadthegerms #pleasegivememyvoiceback #ificansingimgonnakillit”
