AceShowbiz - Pink has blasted Rolling Stone magazine for snubbing her from a list ranking the 25 greatest Grammys performances of all time. Taking to social media to slam the publication, the "Just Give Me a Reason" hitmaker called the outlet "irrelevant."
On Saturday, April 2, ahead of the 2022 Grammys, the magazine shared via Instagram an article ranking the 25 greatest performances in the annual awards show's history. However, the 42-year-old star didn't make it to the list. In the comment section of the post, she wrote, "Bahahahaha you guys have been irrelevant since 1990."
"This is the magazine that used to feature people like John Lennon and Muddy Waters. Hunter S Thompson wrote political pieces- they put Tina Turner on their cover," Pink, whose real name is Alecia Beth Moore, added. "Then they sold out and all credibility went to s**t when 'style over substance' and 'revenue over authenticity' went into play."
Pink also criticized the magazine for its current coverage and content, including writing about reality TV stars. "That's when [Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi] became acceptable coverage. Give me a f**king break," added Pink.
"Do your homework. You don't have to like me or my music or anything about me- and believe me I could give a s**t- but this is the biggest sellout in f**king history when it comes to a publication we all once trusted," Pink fumed. She continued ranting, "F**k rolling stone."
Pink went on to say that she's "felt that way for decades as so many of my favorite artists and [her] peers have." She noted, "This isn't just about their horrendous opinion of 'rating Grammy performances'. It's decades of wasting Trees and people's time."
Among those performances that topped the list was Kendrick Lamar's performance of "The Blacker the Berry" and "Alright" at the 2016 Grammys. Also made it to the list were performances by Prince and the Revolution, Beyonce Knowles, Taylor Swift, Stevie Wonder and Aretha Franklin.
Shortly after slamming Rolling Stone, Pink turned to her own Instagram page to share a photo from one of her past sets. The impassioned image saw her straddling a shirtless dancer as they intensely stared into each other's eyes.
In the picture, Pink, clad in nude fishnet tights and a lacy black bodysuit, also gripped her fellow entertainer. The "F**kin' Perfect" songstress' bleached blonde hair was short and choppy with shaved sides, exposing an earpiece. Underneath the photo, she simply wrote, "Just because #grammys."
In the comment section, Juliette Lewis gushed, "Omg NOONE and I mean NOONE did better Grammy performances than YOU." Also praising Pink was famed fitness instructor Jeanette Jenkins. "Oh yes! Such an incredible performance! [red heart emojis]," Jeanette commented.
