The holidays are a stressful time, even for Grammy-winning rock artist Pink. One Thanksgiving, she even slashed husband Carey Hart’s tires and got 13 stitches in the process.

Fans know Pink for her outgoing personality and electrifying performances. Since her debut as a solo artist, Pink has earned 20 Grammy nominations and three Grammy Awards, including those in the Best Pop Collaboration With Vocals and Best Female Rock Vocal Performance categories. 

Pink has sold millions of records over the years and has earned millions of streams. “Just Give Me a Reason” alone has over 825 million plays on Spotify. And “What About Us” has surpassed 580 million Spotify plays. 

The singer also has offered fans glimpses into some of her most memorable personal moments. That includes the time she slashed her husband’s tires. 

Pink slashed husband Carey Hart’s tires under the stress of Thanksgiving

While visiting The Ellen DeGeneres Show in 2019, Pink answered some “burning questions” with the host. She shared that everything she does embarrasses her children — from her outfits to her hair, which according to her children looks like “one big bang.” 

Another story Pink shared is she seriously hurt herself by slashing husband Carey Hart’s tires.

“It was Thanksgiving,” she said. “Holidays are stressful. I got clean through the first one. … Those tires are very thick, thank you very much. And the second one, I lost a little steam, and I hit the metal part, and my hand just went straight down the knife.”

As a result, the singer rushed to the hospital to get 13 stitches in her hand. She said she didn’t even need anesthesia, which stunned DeGeneres.

“I couldn’t feel a thing,” Pink added.
