In an interview with People, Pink reflected on her relationship with Spears, saying, “I’m very protective of her, and she's the sweetest person in the world.”

She'd 'Always Felt Like A Big Sister'

She added that she’d “always felt like a big sister" to her, and that her 2001 single, Don't Let Me Get Me, wasn’t a diss against the 41-year-old Princess of Pop.

They Appeared Together In A Pepsi Commercial

Pink and Spears have a long history together. Back in 2004, they filmed their epic Pepsi commercial for the Super Bowl.

This is not the first time Pink has spoken about Spears’ life struggles.

She Said She Watched 'Framing Britney Spears'

She had previously offered support for the troubled star after watching the 2021 New York Times documentary, Framing Britney Spears.

How The Docu Affected Her

During an appearance on Watch What Happens Live last year, she said the film saddened her and she wished she had been more supportive when the Toxic singer had her infamous meltdown in 2008.

Nobody Really Knows What’s Happening With Spears

She also offered her opinion on the public intrusion into Spears’ life, saying that all of us are just “voyeurs” and nobody really knows what’s happening with her behind closed doors.

On a lighter note, she looked back on that famous Pepsi ad with amazement, calling it “bizarre” and “a weird deal” – in a positive way.

It Was Phenomenal

“[Y]ou’re Pepsi. You’re flying us to Rome to shoot in a fake coliseum down the street from the real Coliseum. Why are we here?” she said. “We could have gone to Canada.”

'That's Pepsi Money'

She added, “I don’t understand. That’s Pepsi money. For a while, everything I saw that was really fancy, I was like, ‘That's Pepsi money.’”
