Pink takes a shot at Britney Spears at V Festival

The singer also takes on George W Bush

Pink had a sly dig at fellow pop singer Britney Spears during her slot at the V Festival[/a] in Staffordshire this evening (August 19).

Following recent tabloid reports that have linked Spears to everything from lesbian romps and an affair with a magician, Pink opted to change one her lyrics during her V Stage appearance to comment on the singer’s current woes.

Performing �Don�t Let Me Get Me�, she changed the regular line “tired of being compared to damn Britney Spears, she�s so pretty” to say “she�s so crazy”, drawing loud laughter and cheers from the crowd.

With the set also including the likes of ‘Just Like A Pill’,

‘Trouble’ and ‘Who Knew’, Spears wasn�t the singer�s only target, as Pink also took aim at George W Bush.

“I wanna get political for a second,� she told the crowd ahead of ‘Dear Mr President’. �Maybe after one year of playing this song, the world might be a better place.”

She then played the track accompanied by images of soldiers, explosions, crying children and the US leader himself.

However with the set also including covers of Janis Joplin�s �Summertime� and 4 Non Blondes� �What�s Up�, Pink did enjoy a few lighter moments, asking one girl in the crowd: “Can I borrow your hairspray?” as her towering blonde mowhawk sagged before she ended the set with ‘Get The Party Started’.
