Pink: After Watching Britney Doc, Says ‘I Could Have Reached Out’
P!nk made a virtual appearance on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen yesterday, where she discussed her feelings after watching the Framing Britney Spears documentary.
After a fan professed that P!nk is their favorite human in front of their partner, they said, “But now I have to get a little shady. So as someone who grew up in the industry with Britney Spears, what were your thoughts on the Framing Britney Spears documentary and also her conservatorship?”
“Uh, I love Britney, and here’s the thing about all of us voyeurs. None of us know what’s going on, we’re not there. And I would like to, I think we all would like to and we show this fierce protectiveness over her for good reason. She’s a sweetheart. She’s incredibly sweet. All I know is she’s incredibly sweet and I want her to be happy,” P!nk shared.
P!nk said she did watch the documentary, saying that she “felt sad” after watching it. “Back then, I didn’t know, back in the day, in the early days, I didn’t know. Like, I’m a strong person, like I could have reached out more.” P!nk admitted. “And I can only imagine how she feels, and she could have used some support, and the media tore her apart, and the paparazzi are scum and I just —- I wish I could have reached out and gave her a hug.”
Last week, P!nk opened up in an interview with People magazine about being pitted against Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera early in their careers, and portrayed by the media as the “Anti-Britney.”
However, the “Raise Your Glass” singer said that it was all just invented by the media. “It was so unfair to all the girls. None of us wanted that,” Pink said.
The 41-year-old singer went on to say, “I love Britney — she used to carry around my album. I was like, ‘Dude, I’m a street punk, I just skateboard. That doesn’t have to be the anti-Britney. I don’t want to fight anybody.'”
