Pink Spent $118 Calling the New Kids on the Block Hotline
Admit it, if you were a New Kids on the Block fan back in the day, then you probably tried calling the group’s hotline using your parents’ landline (remember those?).
That’s exactly what Pink used to do as a young Blockhead in the 80s and it turned into quite the costly habit for the singer. The pop star opened up about her NKOTB obsession during an interview on Monday’s episode of the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and revealed that she racked up a $118 phone bill for her constant calls to the boy band.
“I was grounded for that,” Pink said. “I talked to all of them–all the time. We were practically getting married.”
The singer added that she eventually did pay her parents back for the expensive bill, albeit as an adult.
As for the Pink’s favorite member of the group, she admitted that Donnie Wahlberg was the man for her because he was, as Fallon described, a “bad boy.” Well, at least compared to the rest of the NKOTB crew.
“He was my guy,” Pink said.
Wahlberg caught wind of Pink’s praises and tweeted out his appreciation on Tuesday, along with a cheeky dig at Fallon for being a Joey McIntyre fan.
