Pink is not married to Travis Barker, thank you very much.

It's been 12 years since the 34-year-old singer made her red carpet debut with her now-husband, Carey Hart (at the 2002 Grammys!), but it turns out not everybody knows who the retired motocross racer is, as we learned on Monday's "The Ellen DeGeneres Show."

Pink took to Twitter to playfully call out Ellen and her team for misidentifying her husband during an interview from the 2014 Grammys the night before. The blonde, who delivered a memorable Cirque du Soleil-inspired performance set to her song "Try" at the awards show, seemed tickled that her longtime partner -- and father of her 2-year-old daughter, Willow -- was misidentified as drummer Travis Barker.

In fairness, the men both have dark hair and a lot of tattoos, especially on their hands and necks. But that's where the physical similarities end. Plus, the former Blink-182 drummer, who was recently linked to Carmen Electra, has a much more extensive body art collection, including several tattoos on his face.

But the mix-up was no harm, no foul for easygoing Pink. After she posted the photo on Twitter, Ellen had her own witty response. (Of course.)

"You found it! I was making sure you were watching," the talk show host joked.

DeGeneres is gearing up to host the Oscars on March 2 -- and we're sure she's now doing extra practice work so as not to confuse other celeb lookalikes. Look out for Jessica Chastain and Bryce Dallas Howard, Ellen. That one always gets us.
