She told her favorite singer that the first thing she does every morning is to listen to her music.
She shared, “Most of my days start with the song of the day and it’s a Pink song usually. When I race, it’s always a Pink song.”
Pink who recently underwent hip surgery and is recovering, said, “You are a legend. You know that right? You are a legend.” Berberian then gave her a compliment by saying, “Pink, I love you, I love everything about you.”
Berberian said to NBC News that she admired the singer in the past, “I admire that she is a woman who seeks her truth; she’s strong, she’s bold and that’s who Philly girls are.”
Pink disclosed that she got to know about her from another fan who tipped her off to Berberian’s wish and narrated her story.
Pink said, “You have a kind of bravery that I don’t understand. You’re bringing comfort to other people while you’re walking through this.”
Berberian said, “I don’t even know what’s on my bucket list now, because you were so far at the top. All the other things started to happen so it’s kinda like, ‘Okay, I’ll think of somethin’ else!'”.
Just before they were about to finish their call, Berberian gave Pink one final message, “Don’t give up! Don’t stop doing what you’re doing!” Pink responded by saying, “Okay. I won’t.”
Well, this is indeed a sweet and heartwarming gesture from Pink for one of her greatest fans, Berberian. What say?
