Pink has cemented her legendary status by winning the Icon Award at 2021 Billboard Music Awards. The award was presented to her by Bon Jovi, who Pink revealed was her childhood crush.

Beginning her acceptance speech Pink said, "Okay, so I have to tell you — I think you might already know this — but I did not come out of my room for a week when you married Dorothea [in 1989]. I was 8. I ripped your poster off my wall, and I replaced you with Sebastian Bach."

"I'm very glad that you found lasting love Jon, but you broke my heart," she continued with a laugh. "I take this as an apology. I accept."

Pink then went on to acknowledge her 9 year old daughter who performed with Pink on stage, and her 4 year old son Jameson.

Well deserved, Pink!
