Pink is raising eyebrows after she spat something out of her mouth before performing the national anthem at Super Bowl LII.

After beautifully singing the "Star Spangled Banner" while battling the flu, some fans were baffled over what the three-time Grammy Award-winning artist's actions.

Of course, assuming the substance was gum, Twitter users were quick to voice their disapproval.

But despite the backlash, several fans sung their praise for the "What About Us" singer.

And others thought the act was simply hilarious.

Eventually, Pink addressed the trending topic and said contrary to popular belief, it was a throat lozenge and not a stick of gum. She also thanked her fans for their well wishes as she sang through her illness.
