The singer Pink's recent performance
at the Grammy's evoked this
reaction from comedian Joe Rogan: Her performance was like Jimi Hendrix doing the star spangled banner while Michael Jackson moon walked and Susan Boyle sang back up.
The song, "Glitter in the Air," is from Pink's 2008 album "Funhouse
." Much of that album was Pink's reflections on the breakup of her marriage to motocross
star Carey Hart
. But the story between Pink and Hart doesn't end there...
Pink and Carey Hart were married in 2006 (she asked
him to marry her by holding up a sign during one of his races). They separated in early 2008 prompting Pink to write her number one hit "So What
." The song opens with the lines "I guess I just lost my husband, I don't know where he went." The video
includes a giant pillow fight.
Later that year Hart's brother died in a motorcycle accident. Pink attended
the funeral, sang at a benefit, and the two eventually reconciled. Hart then surprised Pink in Hannover, Germany at the final show of her "Funhouse Tour
." During Pink's performance of "So What," the song about the end of their relationship, the dancers sneaked Hart, wearing a hooded sweatshirt, on-stage (in place of the dancer who is supposed to represent Hart). Pink pulls his hood off and, upon recognizing Hart, staggers backwards in surprise. Then she pulls him in for a kiss
. Cue the pillow fight...
