Pink spits chewing gum out before crushing Star Spangled Banner

Jack O'Toole

What do you do in the final moments before the biggest moment of your singing career? Make sure you’re not chewing gum of course.

Pink’s rousing rendition of the American national anthem was predated by the pop princess getting rid of her chewing gum before the start of the Star Spangled banner.

The three-time Grammy winner sang the anthem, despite battling the flu, but powered through to deliver an impressive rendition of the anthem.

The 38-year-old grew up about 30 miles from Philadelphia and she was ecstatic to have been given the opportunity to play.
