Pink is stunned when a fan throws her mother’s ASHES on stage as the singer performs at a major London festival
Pink was stunned at her concert in London last weekend when a fan threw her mother’s ashes onto the stage in a pouch.
The Never Gonna Not Dance Again singer, 42, also received a number of other gifts from her loyal fans at her two American Express Presents BST Hyde Park shows, including teddy bears, flowers and artwork.
But she was shocked when she handed over the bag of cremated remains and asked the audience member to clarify that it was their mother’s remains – before saying, “I don’t know how to feel about that.”
After walking back to the stage from the center walkway, Pink added, “I have to say that was a first.”
The singer also helped a fan get engaged while performing a piano cover of Bob Dylan’s Make You Feel My Love after checking to see if anyone “passed out or proposed.”

Pink became a couples therapist throughout her set as she reflected on her experience with husband Carey Hart, who she wrote the song Please Forgive Me about when they were on the verge of divorce.
The singer – who tied the knot with the 47-year-old former motocross racer in 2006 – said the key to a lasting marriage is learning the art of an “authentic apology” and also joked about which of her husband and she are a medal.
Pink’s BST set saw her joined by their 12-year-old daughter Willow Sage for the uplifting anthem, Cover Me In Sunshine.
The Grammy winner, who also features six-year-old Jameson with Carey, stormed through her high-octane setlist with multiple outfit changes, including dazzling leotards and shimmering platform shoes, one of which she gave to a fan.

Highlights included a So What closing with Pink whizzing through the crowd and landing on a platform before taking to the air past Gwen Stefani, 53, who opened for her old friend with an epic set featuring giant inflatable balloons at the classic Hollaback from the nineties. Girl and moving cupcakes.
Gwen asked the audience during her set if she should have a gin or tequila to watch Pink’s show.
BST Hyde Park continues with sets from Take That, BLACKPINK and Guns N’ Roses, Bruce Springsteen, Lana Del Rey and Billy Joel.
