“Pink's COVID-19 battle left her fearing for her life. During a conversation on Mark Wright's Heart radio show, the 41-year-old singer revealed that she went so far as to rewrite her will, when she was ill last year.”
Pink and her four-year-old son, Jameson, tested positive for the virus in March 2020, but her husband, Carey Hart, and daughter, 9-year-old Willow, did not contract the coronavirus.
MSN’s recent article entitled “Pink Reveals She Rewrote Her Will Because She Thought 'It Was Over' Amid COVID-19 Battle” reports that the entertainer did change her will.
"It was really, really bad, and I rewrote my will," she said. "... At the point where I thought it was over for us, I called my best friend and I said, 'I just need you to tell Willow how much I loved her.' It was really, really scary and really bad. "
The experience inspired her single, "All I Know So Far.” Pink described the song as "a letter to my daughter." The single was released May 7, and a documentary and album of the same name will follow on May 21.
"As a parent, you think about, 'What am I leaving for my kid? What am I teaching them? Are they going to make it in this world, this crazy world that we live in now? What do I need to tell them if this is the last time that I get to tell them anything?'" she said. "So, that was kind of the song."
Pink first announced that she and Jameson were fighting the coronavirus in April 2020. That same month, she described "the scariest thing" she has ever been through on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, sharing that her son was the first one to get sick.
"[It] started with a fever for him and it would come and go, and he would have stomach pains and diarrhea and chest pains and then a headache, sore throat," she said. "It sort of was just all over the place. Every day was just some new symptom. His fever stayed it did not go. It just started going up and up and up and up and then at one point it was at 103."
As for herself, Pink said, "I woke up in the middle of the night and couldn't breathe and I needed to get to a nebulizer for the first time in 30 years. I have this inhaler that I use, this rescue inhaler, and I couldn't function without it, and that's when I started to get really scared."
In a December 2020 Instagram post, Pink, whose real name is Alecia Beth Moore, called 2020 a "poop sandwich of a year." She also had a staph infection and a broken ankle.
