'Controversial' National Anthem Singer for Super Bowl LII Announced

January 08, 2018Jan 08, 2018

Super Bowl LII, the biggest sporting event of 2018, will take place on Sunday, February 4th at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. As football fans patiently wait for playoff season to end, additional Super Bowl details have been released to the public.

Last month, it was announced that Justin Timberlake would perform the halftime show. On Monday, January 8th, the national anthem singer was also announced by the NFL—Pink.

38-year-old star singer Alecia Beth Moore, famously known as “Pink,” is an award-winning music artist best known for her spicy charisma and unique personality. She has won several Billboard, Emmy, and Grammy awards throughout her professional music career.

Some of her top songs include “Don’t Let Me Get Me,” “Raise Your Glass,” and most recently, “What About Us.”

According to Variety, Pink’s newest album, “Beautiful Trauma” was released last year—her first album in five years. The corresponding world tour kicks off in March.

The national anthem has been a controversial topic in recent days following the national anthem protests by dozens of NFL players. The controversy blew up last year after President Donald Trump became involved.

On social media, people have already addressed Pink and the national anthem. Some users predict that she will kneel herself, but currently, there is no factual reasoning to believe she will do so.



Pink also sparked controversy herself recently after she revealed that she is raising her children in a "gender neutral, label-free" household. She has been fairly outspoken about her views on gender identity. Previously, she proudly shared a photo of a Kindergarten bathroom door that was gender neutral and displayed shapes on the door instead of a man/woman symbol, commenting "Progress," reported Newsweek.
