    Alecia Beth Moore, also known as Pink, has a Jewish mother and Catholic father. This proud Jewess is famous for songs like “What About Us” and “Just Like a Pill.” In the summer of 2017, she talked about taking her daughter to Berlin’s Holocaust Memorial in an Instagram post. Pink put up a picture of the Berlin tunnels and wrote, “It’s incredible to watch neo-Nazis march in 2017, while I, a Jewish woman, headline a show in Berlin where these tunnels were built by him, built curvy so he couldn’t be shot in the back.”
