P!nk hits out at magazine over Grammys performance ranking

P!nk has had some heated words with Rolling Stone after they released their ranking of Grammys performances over the years.

Before the big event hit our screens on April 3rd, the music magazine shared an article on their Instagram where they ranked the 25 greatest performances in the history of the Grammys.  
P!nk definitely disagreed with this list, commenting... 

“Bahahahaha you guys have been irrelevant since 1990” 

Continuing on she said "This is the magazine that used to feature people like John Lennon and Muddy Waters. Hunter S Thompson wrote political pieces – they put Tina Turner on their cover [...] Then they sold out"

“You don’t have to like me or my music [...] but this is the biggest sellout in f***ing history when it comes to a publication we all once trusted." 

“This isn’t just about their horrendous opinion of ‘rating Grammy performances’. It’s decades of wasting trees and people’s time.”

P!nk herself has performed multiple times and even taken three Grammys home for herself.

Kendrick Lamar came in #1 on their list for his performance of “The Blacker The Berry” at the 2016 awards.
Prince and the Revolution, Beyoncé, Bob Dylan, Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, and Taylor Swift also feature on the list.
