While promoting her 11th studio album Trustfall, pop punk artist Pink got candid about her experience working on the 2001 song and music video for “Lady Marmalade” in an interview with Buzzfeed. “It wasn’t very fun to make,” Pink said of the song, which also featured Lil’ Kim, Mya, and Christina Aguilera. “I’m all about fun, and it was a lot of fuss. There were some personalities…. Kim and Mya were nice. I guess it is iconic.” Once the interview was posted, people online suspected that Pink was suggesting Aguilera was the problem by excluding her. Pink’s comment inadvertently reignited the Pink-Aguilera feud of Y2K and made headlines.
Initially, Pink shared tweets expressing her disappointment in fans for reading into her comments. “I’m zero percent interested in your fucking drama,” she wrote.
Then on Sunday, February 26, Pink shared her thoughts on the matter on Instagram in a long caption in which she takes responsibility but also points outs a double standard. “I’m so saddened and disappointed by the narrative surrounding some of the press I’ve been doing around my album Trustfall,” she wrote. She paired the caption with a selfie of herself and her six-year-old son, Jameson.
“While some of the responsibility lays with me and my inability to lie, and my uncanny ability to overshare—my real disappointment lies in the fact that the art can never be the focus when you’re a woman,” she wrote. “The fact that I created one of the most beautiful albums with the most beautiful people—sang my ass off, made myself wholly vulnerable—eleven albums in, selling out stadiums, raising good kids, steadily employing hundreds of good, hardworking people, the only thing they ask you about over and over is a silly feud from your twenties.”
“Christina- you know where we stand,” she continued. “Resolved. Onwards and upwards. And thank you all for listening—and for the 25 years of kick ass love and support. Peace ✌🏽.” See the post below:
