Pink’s secret friendship with Aussie star

An Aussie star has opened up about his years-long friendship with Pink, and revealed what she’s really like in person.

Rove McManus first became mates with the singing superstar when she appeared on his talk show, Rove Live.

“I think it was maybe in 2000 when she was first on the show,” Rove told news.com.au on the red carpet at the AACTA awards on the Gold Coast on Saturday night.

“We kind of hit it off, and every time she came back (to Australia) she was more and more famous and our show was becoming more and more popular and it just kind of meshed that a friendship blossomed.”

Pink has shared several snaps with Rove on social media over the years, and in 2018 she paid tribute to the Aussie entertainer and his wife, Tasma Walton.

“One of my all time biggest and forever gratitudes is this; my travels have brought me gems,” she wrote.

“Unique antique collectable one of a kinders. These people that I love with my whole heart and see so rarely.

“My life and my heart is so full because of them, these rad fu**ing humans spread across the globe. I love you @rovemcmanus and @tasma_walton and I missed you dearly.”

The feeling is clearly mutual, with Rove telling news.com.au: “She’s amazing, she’s everything you would hope for.”

“She’s funny, she’s witty, she’s got a huge heart, very caring and very generous of her time.”

Rove also heaped praise on Pink’s husband, Carey Hart, saying: “He taught me how to ride a motorbike and I nearly took out a kid in a lemonade stand, it was rough”.

Pink kicked off her Australian ‘Summer Carnival’ tour in Sydney on February 9 has upcoming shows in Newcastle, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth and Townsville.
