Singer Pink was performing at a London concert venue when a fan disrupted the show by tossing a small plastic bag full of cremated remains onto the stage.
The incident took place during Pink’s set at the British Summer Time festival in Hyde Park, London, over the weekend. She was in the middle of a performance of her hit song “Just Like a Pill” when a fan threw the bag onto the stage in front of her.

Pink walked over to where the bag landed and held it up for a closer look, at which point she turned to address the fan who had thrown it: “Is this your mom?”
After she apparently got a positive response to the question, the singer stood up and walked to the edge of the stage, where she set the bag down. “I don’t know how I feel about this,” she said, before carrying on with her performance.
According to a report published by Page Six on Tuesday, the woman who had thrown the ashes had done so because her mother had not been able to travel or get out much when she was alive — and now that she has passed, her daughter has made a habit of taking her to places she might have enjoyed.
Pink is certainly not the only performer to deal with strange things being thrown onto the stage during shows — singer Harry Styles recently had a brief conversation with a fan who threw a chicken nugget onto the stage at a Madison Square Garden concert.
“Interesting, very interesting approach. Who threw the chicken nugget?” Styles asked, politely saying that he did not eat meat when fans encouraged him to eat it.
“You want it back? Why? Because? All right, there you go,” Styles continued, tossing the chicken back into the crowd. “Don’t eat it! Oh, now it’s on the floor. Don’t go looking for it. We’ll get you another nugget, ok? Fear not, fear not … Would anyone else like to throw any old food before we move on?”
