Pink has been transparent about how difficult it can be to struggle through the coronavirus. The singer revealed last week that both she and her son Jameson had tested positive for the disease and recovered from it.

In an interview with Ellen DeGeneres in which she discussed her diagnosis, the singer said that the worst part was discovering that her son had also tested positive for the disease. She described the experience as deeply emotional, but said that she eventually got through it.

“This is the scariest thing I’ve ever been through in my whole life,” she told the host about her son's diagnosis. “It really is just a rollercoaster.”

She continued by discussing what her emotions had been like throughout her battle with the virus. “At one point I was crying, praying and I realized how ridiculous I sounded,” the singer explained. “I thought they told us our kids would be okay. We were told that our kids were going to be okay!”

Pink said that her son showed symptoms first, after he came down with a persistent fever as well as stomach pains, diarrhea, chest pains, a headache and a sore throat. The singer said that shortly thereafter, she also developed symptoms of the virus.

“I didn’t feel good I was really tired, I kind of had the chills a little bit nauseous but I never had a fever,” the signer explained. “I never had what they tell you to look for.”

Pink, who has also been diagnosed with asthma, was eventually hospitalized because she was having trouble breathing. Thankfully, Pink said that her whole family is largely recovered. “We are doing alright, we are doing ok this week,” she said. “I don’t even know what day it is but this is a better week than the last.”

On April 3, the singer announced that she had tested positive for the coronavirus and recovered from it in a series of Tweets posted to her account.

“Two weeks ago my three-year-old son, Jameson, and I are were [sic] showing symptoms of COVID-19. Fortunately, our primary care physician had access to tests and I tested positive," Pink wrote at the time. “My family was already sheltered at home and continued to do so for the last two weeks following the instruction of our doctor. Just a few days ago we were re-tested and are now thankfully negative.”

Pink also donated $500,000 to the Temple University Emergency Hospital Fund, and $50,000 to the City of Los Angeles Mayor’s Emergency COVID-19 Crisis Fund.
