I’m really looking forward to 2018. I’m really excited about the Grammy’s. Tour. Some other stuff that’s a secret still and I can’t wait til it’s not a secret. I’m also excited for trump to lose his twitter password and also I’m excited that I have dope hair. 💩🤘🏽🤡— P!nk (@Pink) January 6, 2018
Pink, who released her latest album, "Beautiful Trauma," in October, joins the likes of Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Luke Bryan, Idina Menzel, Kelly Clarkson, Christina Aguilera, Carrie Underwood, Jennifer Hudson and Alicia Keys to perform the national anthem before a Super Bowl.
The other musical guest at Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis will be Justin Timberlake, who is returning to play the halftime show for the first time since Janet Jackson's infamous "wardrobe malfunction" at Super Bowl XXXVIII in 2004.
