The singer also takes on George W Bush
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 ï¿½Donï¿½t Let Me Get Meï¿½, she changed the regular line “tired of being compared to damn Britney Spears, sheï¿½s so pretty” to say “sheï¿½s 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 wasnï¿½t the singerï¿½s only target, as Pink also took aim at George W Bush.
“I wanna get political for a second,ï¿½ she told the crowd ahead of ‘Dear Mr President’. ï¿½Maybe 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 Joplinï¿½s ï¿½Summertimeï¿½ and 4 Non Blondesï¿½ ï¿½Whatï¿½s Upï¿½, 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’.
