Pink calls Rolling Stone ‘irrelevant’ and ‘biggest sell in history’ after magazine snubbed her from list of top 25 Grammy performances
Pink lambasted Rolling Stone magazine for snubbing her from a list ranking the 25 greatest Grammys performances of all time.
The singer – real name Alecia Moore – reacted furiously after learning she had been dropped from the list released on Saturday.

The musical artist – full name Alecia Beth Moore – said: ‘This is the magazine that featured people like John Lennon and Muddy Waters’.
‘Hunter S Thompson wrote political articles – they put Tina Turner on their cover. Then they sold out and all credibility was destroyed when “style over substance” and “revenue over authenticity” came into play.
She then brought in Jersey Shore star Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi, joking, “That’s when Snooki became an acceptable cover. Give me a f*****g break.
The mother-of-two continued to rail against the magazine, adding: “Do your homework.” You don’t have to like me or my music or anything about me – and believe me I could give some ass – but this is the biggest sale in f*** history **g when it comes to a publication we all once trusted.
