Pink has changed the lyrics to a popular song for Britney Spears in support of the pop star.
The star had been performing in Detroit at Comercia Park at her Summer Carnival Tour when she made a subtle change to the lyrics of the song 'Don't Let Me Get Me'.
The original lyric was: "Tired of being compared to damn Britney Spears / She's so pretty / That just ain't me."
She changed it so the word 'damn' was 'sweet', with the crown cheering in response to the subtle alteration.
Pink had previously said in February that she feels 'protective' of Spears.
She told PEOPLE: "People think I was picking on Britney on [my 2001 single] 'Don't Let Me Get Me,' but I've always felt like a big sister to her.
"I'm very protective of her, and she's the sweetest person in the world. I wish her well. I cover her in light all day long."
They became friend starring in Pepsi's Super Bowl commercial alongside fellow singer Beyoncé.
Pink said to PEOPLE: "What a weird deal that was. What the hell? Like, 'What are we doing?' Also, you're Pepsi. You're flying us to Rome to shoot in a fake Colosseum down the street from the real Colosseum.
"Why are we here? We could have gone to Canada. 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.' It was bizarre."
She had also revealed that she wishes she had reached out to Spears more earlier in the pairs' careers.
Speaking on Watch What Happens Live, she said: "I felt sad that back then like I didn't know, back in the day, in the early days, I didn't know. Like I could've reached out more.
"I don't like feeling helpless and, or powerless and I can only imagine how she feels and she could've used some support.
"I wish I could've reached out and gave her a hug."
Sam Asghari confirmed that he had filed for divorce after being married to Britney Spears for one year.
On Thursday he made the announcement in a post to his Instagram account.
He said: "We will hold onto the love and respect we have for each other and I wish her the best always.
"S**t happens. Asking for privacy seems rediculous [sic] so I will just ask for everyone including the media to be kind and thoughtful."
