P!nk mentions in a few many songs that she’s going to die at age of 27.
“This is a reference to the cultural phenomenon The 27 Club, which is celebrating popular musicians who passed away at the age of 27. The majority of the deaths have been linked to drug and alcohol abuse, or violent means such as homicide, suicide, or transportation-related accidents. Although it later has been scientifically disproven, the 27 club was started since people had noticed a tendency linked to there being a higher chance of passing away at 27, than any other age. Some famous members of the club are Janis Joplin, Amy Winehouse, and Kurt Cobain.“
