Pink will get the party started at the Super Bowl next month, when the “What About Us” singer will perform the National Anthem at the start of America’s most-watched sporting event.
Justin Timberlake is slated to be the half-time entertainment, but given Pink’s penchant for amazing vocals, eye-catching performances, and political awareness, we’re definitely tuning in early on February 4.
“I’m really looking forward to 2018,” she teased in a cryptic tweet before the news went live. “I’m really excited about the Grammys. Tour. Some other stuff that’s a secret still and I can’t wait til it’s not a secret. I’m also excited for Trump to lose his twitter password and also I’m excited that I have dope hair.”
Pink is still riding high off the success of her seventh studio album, Beautiful Trauma, which has sold nearly two million copies in just a few months.
She’s also kept speaking out about equality and injustice: Her video for “Beautiful Trama” shows her and Channing Tatum engaging in a little healthy gender expression. And in a recent interview Pink revealed she and husband Carey don’t impose heteronormative gender roles on their kids, 6-year-old Willow Sage and 11-month old Jameson Moon.
“We are a very label-less household,” the 38-year-old singer revealed. “Last week Willow told me she is going to marry an African woman. I was like, ’Great, can you teach me how to make African food?’” The precocious tot added that she and her future wife would live with Pink while their own house was “getting ready.”
Pink’s only question: “Who is paying for this?”
Super Bowl LII will air Sunday, February 4, on NBC.
