She honored her fellow pop star by updating her 2001 hit "Don't Let Me Get Me."
Pink is paying tribute to Britney Spears amid her divorce from husband Sam Asghari.
The 43-year-old "So What" singer honored her fellow pop star by updating the lyrics to her 2001 hit "Don't Let Me Get Me" while performing at the Comerica Park in Detroit on Wednesday night.
The fiery pop track, which details Pink's deepest insecurities and desire to become someone else, originally contained the lyrics "Tired of being compared to damn Britney Spears / She's so pretty / That just ain't me." In video footage from the show shared on social media, Pink can be seen swapping out the words and instead singing, "Tired of being compared to sweet Britney Spears."
"She's so pretty," she continued. "That just ain't me." The change was met with cheers from the crowd.
Pink, who is currently on her Summer Carnival tour, previously told PEOPLE that she never intended to diss Spears by name-dropping her in the song. "People think I was picking on Britney on 'Don't Let Me Get Me,' but I've always felt like a big sister to her," she said. "I'm very protective of her, and she's the sweetest person in the world."
She added, "I wish her well. I cover her in light all day long."
The Grammy winner's lyric swap happened as news broke that Spears' husband, Sam Asghari, had filed for divorce from her after 14 months of marriage.
Asghari, who plays Kamal in the Taylor Sheridan series, lovingly refers to Spears as his "lioness."
In a much-needed win for the ever-shifting Yellowstone universe, Mr. Britney Spears made quite the entrance, sans clothing, in Episode 3 of Taylor Sheridan's spy thriller Special Ops: Lioness. Sam Asghari, who wed Spears in June 2022, plays inveterate womanizer Kamal in the Paramount+ series, which stars Zoe Saldana and Nicole Kidman as CIA operatives on an all-female undercover team.
Asghari's splashy Special Ops: Lioness debut involved a lot of water, no shirt and some not-so-subtle hints that his character Kamal is a Lothario of the highest order. Showing off his toned physique, all eyes are on Kamal as he cannonballs into the swimming pool during an Episode 3 party. Aaliyah (Stephanie Nur), who's engaged to Kamal's brother, informs an undercover Cruz (Laysla De Oliveira) of Kamal's playboy ways with a few of her close friends. The scene prompts one partygoer to remark, "Why does God only give the best bodies to jerks?" He also made an appearance in last night's Episode 4.
Asghari, 29, wed Britney Spears, 41, in June 2022. His casting in Special Ops: Lioness was announced in November of that year.
Asghari reposted the news of his casting to Instagram in November 2022, writing, "It's a pleasure to join such a badass cast." A few days after that, he shared a cheeky video from set in which he can be seen riding around on a tiny motorized scooter. "Is the scooter too small for me?" he joked in the caption.
The Iranian-born Asghari is a model and actor who made his onscreen debut in the 2019 rom-com Can You Keep a Secret?, starring Alexandra Daddario and Tyler Hoechlin. He has appeared in episodes of Hacks, Black Monday and, most recently, in the Mel Gibson action movie Hot Seat.
Before their marriage, Spears and Asghari dated for five years. In the midst of Spears' legal challenge against the controversial conservatorship headed by her father, Asghari came out in support of his then-girlfriend. In December 2021, he referred to Spears as his "lioness" in a loved-up Instagram photo of the pair, writing that her "relentless strength" inspired him.
New episodes of Special Ops: Lioness premiere Sundays on Paramount+.
Britney Spears is back on the Billboard charts, and on at least one ranking, she rules the game. This week, the singer claims the No. 1 spot on the Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales ranking with her latest collaboration, "Mind Your Business.” The tune is another duet with the talented frontman of Black Eyed Peas, Will.I.Am.
The song's ascent to the pinnacle of the chart comes as no huge surprise, given Spears' track record of chart-topping hits and her undeniable star power.
"Mind Your Business" debuts at No. 1 on the Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales chart, the ranking of the bestselling tunes in America that can be labeled either dance or electronic. The song opens with a sales figure of over 4,600 copies, as reported by Luminate.
To put this achievement into perspective, the second bestseller on the chart this frame, "Real Hips 2" by Bandmanrill and DJ Sliink, pales in comparison, failing to even secure a spot within the top 50 bestselling tunes in the United States. Will.I.Am and Spears' collaborative effort has not only triumphed but has done so by a significant margin, perhaps outselling its closest rivals many times over.
"Mind Your Business" nearly achieved the status of a top 10 bestseller across all genres. The song debuts at No. 12 on the Digital Song Sales chart, missing out on entering the highest echelons of this all-encompassing tally by around 1,200 copies.
Spears' latest triumph adds yet another jewel to her crown when it comes to the Billboard rankings, as it marks her fourth No. 1 hit on the Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales chart. This winning streak started in 2011 with "Till the World Ends" and was followed by "Scream & Shout," another collaboration with Will.I.Am, in 2013. Spears once again clinched the top spot just last year with "Hold Me Close," a duet with the legendary Elton John.
"Mind Your Business" contributes to Spears’s record of a dozen top 10 hits on the Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales chart. This tally has become very familiar to the pop sensation throughout her career. Will.I.Am, on the other hand, has reached the summit of this chart only twice, and both instances have been alongside Spears. His five top 10 victories include notable collaborations with artists such as Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus, as well as another successful partnership with Spears in the form of "It Should Be Easy."
Lance shared photos of B meeting the 20-month-old twins, Violet Betty and Alexander James, on Twitter Monday.
“I’m a new auntie for Lance’s babies !!! They are absolutely gorgeous babies !!!” Spears wrote on Twitter.
As seen in both of the sweet snapshots, Spears happily smiled as she held each twin in her arms while Bass, 44, carried the respective other. The singer’s husband Sam Asghari was also pictured standing next to his wife.
