P!nk's diagnosis comes just before seven concert dates in Sydney after shows in Melbourne and Perth. Even amidst local scrutiny about her work ethic and taking advantage of fans, P!nk wrote in a statement to fans "you can think whatever you want, it's your right, but I have never taken advantage of any one in my entire life. I have never fucked off while disrespecting hard working people who spend money to come see me play. I have never phoned in a single tour, I have an impeccable record for not cancelling."
