Lady Gaga wowed audiences in Houston Sunday night by "jumping" off the roof of the Super Bowl stadium, then singing while being lowered to the ground in a high-flying aerial act. But some fans pointed out that another pop star has done that sort of thing before. Pink often performs while suspended in the air, and makes it look ridiculously easy. Check out her performance at the Grammys in 2010—the good stuff starts at about two minutes in.

So it's not a surprise that some Pink fans noticed the comparison during the Super Bowl halftime show and weren't too happy.

But Pink put all that to rest on Instagram Monday with a text post, accompanied with hashtags like #womensupportingwomen and #letsnotgetdistracted.

And that's a message we all can agree on. Frankly, any pop star who doesn't perform suspended from the ceiling is just slacking at this point, anyway.
