Pink Shuts Down Critics Who Say Lady Gaga Copied Her at the Super Bowl

Lady Gaga's Super Bowl performance has already attracted its fair share of unnecessary criticism. First internet trolls body shamed the singer for showing off her midriff and now they're blaming her for copying Pink's air acrobatics moves that she's so famous for.

Thankfully, fans were quick to defend Gaga against the body-shaming comments and now Pink has stepped forward to set the record straight. The 37-year-old singer took to Instagram yesterday, saying she has no issues with Lady Gaga and actually thought she "killed it" during the halftime show.

"For the record: Let's squash this before it even has a chance to be a thing… Lady Gaga killed it yesterday," Pink wrote. "Her voice was powerful and beautiful, her outfits were on point, choreography stellar, her heart was in it and she sang about love and inclusiveness, all in front of millions and millions of people."

"Let's celebrate a woman who has the guts to jump off a roof and stand up there in the first place," she continued. "Who cares if I flew first? Cause I didn't! Cirque and Peter Pan [had] been in the air for years!"

Pink accompanied her post with the hashtag #womensupportingwomen, urging her followers to show support rather than pick apart each other's flaws and imperfections.

Thanks for the much-needed dose of positivity Pink! We love you for it.
