Pink defends Lady Gaga following Super Bowl copycat claims
Did you notice the similarities?
Lady Gaga gave a stellar performance during the Super Bowl on Sunday night which had everyone talking.
Along with strong vocals and an amazing set, the performance featured Lady Gaga being hoisted in the air and flying while she sang.
While the energetic show received a lot of praise, many people pointed out that it reminded them of another pop performer.
Y'all, Pink is PISSED that Lady Gaga copied her acroyoga gimmick.

@Pink Was Lady Gaga taking aerial lessons from you? She did a great job at Super Bowl but can't match your mad skills. Come back soon!

Pink was quick to stick up for her fellow singer on Instagram, pointing out that she was far from first to perform this way.
“For the record: Let’s squash this before it even has a chance to be a thing… Lady Gaga killed it yesterday. Her voice was powerful and beautiful, her outfits were on point, choreography stellar, her heart was in it and she sang about love and inclusiveness, all in front of millions and millions of people,'' Pink said, praising the SuperBowl performance.
“Let’s celebrate a woman who has the guts to jump off a roof and stand up there in the first place. Who cares if I flew first? Cause I didn’t! Cirque and Peter Pan been in the air for years!”
Pink, who has been vocal in her fears about President Trump, ended the post by reminding people of what really matters, calling out Donald Trump.
“Now can we get back to the real controversy? The one where our so called leader is stripping our humanity away minute by minute…”
Anyone who has ever been to a Pink concert will know that the singer puts on an incredible acrobatic show, so it's no surprise the two women are being compared. However, as the So What singer said herself, who cares if she flew first, it was being done long before Pink added it to her gigs.
Here's one of our favourite acrobatic performances by the singer.
