Judge rules taking child to Pink concert is not bad parenting

A divorced couple were involved in a custody battle after the mother took her child to the singer's 2013 tour

A judge has ruled that taking a child to a Pink concert does not constitute bad parenting.

The singer was in the centre of a custody battle after a woman was accused by her husband of bad parenting, having taking their 11-year-old daughter to one of her concerts in December 2013.

New Jersey Superior Court Judge Lawrence R. Jones wrote that the mother “in no way, shape or form exceeded the boundaries of reasonable parental judgment” by attending the Pink concert at Newark’s Prudential Centre, Yahoo reports. He also stated that: “[The mother’s] decision did not subject the child to any unreasonable risk of harm, or compromise [her] health, safety or welfare. To the contrary, when all the smoke from the custody litigation clears, it will be self-evident that all which happened here is that a young girl went to her first rock concert with her mother and had a really great time.”

The ex-husband’s complaint accused Pink of using “lyrical profanities” and “sexually suggestive themes and dance performances” in her music, but the mother had already deemed the singer’s repertoire to be appropriate for her daughter’s age group, having watched live footage on YouTube.

Meanwhile, Pink recently hit back at Twitter haters after they criticised the singer’s weight. She posted a long message on the social networking site claiming she is “perfectly fine” and her body is having “some much deserved time off” after she received online abuse.

The singer is also set to be awarded by the BMI (Broadcast Music Inc.) for her songwriting work next month. She has written a number of her own hits, including ‘Just Like A Pill’ and ‘God Is A DJ’. She follows the likes of Adam Levine, Taylor Swift, Willie Nelson and Pitbull in receiving the BMI President’s Award For Songwriting.

“Pink is an extraordinary songwriter whose mastery of craft and passionate artistry has transformed a generation of Pop and Rock music culture around the world,” said BMI Vice President Barbara Cane.

“She has captivated music lovers with her unforgettable, emotional and edgy magnificence of song, voice and performance.”

The award will be presented to Pink at the 63rd annual BMI Pop Awards, taking place at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles on May 12.
