Pink sang the national anthem on Sunday prior to the Super Bowl. Her “Star-Spangled Banner” was stunning and unifying, but it was something that happened right before the song that sent Twitter into a frenzy.

At the last moment, Pink appeared to pull out a piece of gum prior to singing. How could this consummate professional forget to ditch her gum prior to such a giant, international stage?

But not so fast, Pink later said on social media. The pop star clarified that it was a lozenge. As Vulture reports, she was sick with the flu.

She also took some time to respond to the haters postgame.
