Female Soldier Invites Pink to Army Ball

Pink has gotten an invitation to an Army ball -- from a female soldier who admits to having a big crush on her.

Specialist Joanna Wehr, an Army mechanic on her second deployment to Afghanistan, posted an invitation to the Texas gala on YouTube. She sang her plea to the tune of Pink's "Perfect." Wehr, who grew up just a few miles from the singer, changes the song's chorus to “Pretty, pretty please it’d be so amazing to take a fellow girl from Pennsylvania with me.”

The soldier tells Army Times “I know she’s a supporter of our brothers and sisters in arms, past and present. I would be beyond grateful if you could consider helping me prove those people wrong, and making my dream come to life.”

Pink has long been an outspoken supporter of gay rights, and responded to recent homophobic comments on Twitter by saying, "Fun fact: when you twitter me and say “you’re a lesbian” it really doesn’t bother me at all. It’s a compliment. Most of my favorite people are."
