Pink (often stylized as P!nk) was at Madison Square Garden earlier this week for a pair of shows at “The World’s Most Famous” arena as part of the veteran pop singer’s ongoing 2019 Beautiful Trauma World Tour. The first of two performances took place on Tuesday, and saw her welcome her fellow musician and previous collaborator Chris Stapleton to the stage to help perform “Love Me Anyway”.The two had originally recorded the romantic ballad on Pink’s new 2019 studio album, Hurts 2B Human. While the surprise sit-in may not have been as dramatic as Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper‘s recent viral duet of “Shallow”, it has grabbed the attention of Pink and Stapleton fans due to the fact that the two have rarely performed the song together live since its release—if at all. Then again, it would be difficult for the country music star to join Pink on her North American tour when he’s been busy filming scenes for Game of Thrones.You can watch the surprise Pink/Chris Stapleton collab from Tuesday’s show in the video below:Pink with Chris Stapleton – “Love Me Anyway” – 5/21/2019[Video: Michael Winbaum]The two NYC performances marked the end of the North American leg of Pink’s world tour.

Chelsea have declined to comment on reports that midfielder Frank Lampard has agreed a new one-year contract to extend his 12-year stay at Stamford Bridge. Press Association Lampard, who joined from West Ham in 2001 and whose current deal expires at the end of the season, is poised to captain Chelsea in the Europa League final with Benfica in Amsterdam in the likely absence of John Terry. The future of the England midfielder, who will be 35 in June, has been shrouded in uncertainty, but after surpassing the club’s goalscoring record last Saturday a conclusion is close. Speaking last week, prior to netting his 202nd and 203rd Chelsea goals in the 2-1 defeat of Aston Villa, Lampard said: “I’ve always said that I wanted to spend all of my career here so I think everyone knows that.” It is possible the final could be Lampard’s last in Europe for the Blues, whose 69-game competitive season concludes at home to Everton on Sunday. Speaking on the eve of the match, he refused to contemplate the future. Lampard, who overtook Bobby Tambling’s 43-year-old mark of 202 goals with his double at Villa Park, said: “I don’t know what the future exactly holds, but it doesn’t matter. It’s about winning the game. All of us here want to win this for Chelsea.” If Lampard, who has been linked with moves to Los Angeles Galaxy, among others, is granted an extension, it could see a reunion with Jose Mourinho, who has been strongly linked with a return to Stamford Bridge as manager this summer. Lampard hopes to emulate the longevity of Manchester United duo Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs. “I’d love to carry on as long as I feel I can do and I feel I’m fit,” he said last week. “I’d love to do that, for another three or four years. I’d love to emulate those boys.”
