Pink has responded to Twitter backlash over comments she made about the 2001 hit song “Lady Marmalade.”
In a recent interview with BuzzFeed, the punk-pop star ranked 12 of her most iconic music videos. She put the “Lady Marmalade” video—a collaboration with Lil’ Kim, Mya, and Christina Aguilera for the 2001 film *Moulin Rouge!—*at the bottom.
“It wasn’t very fun to make,” Pink told BuzzFeed of the song. “I’m all about fun, and it was a lot of fuss. There were some personalities… Kim and Maya 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.
Of the day they shot the music video, Pink continued, “But I remember I kept crying because my skin didn’t like the makeup.” The singer added that there were “some annoying things happening that day.”
Fans were quick to call Pink’s comments shady, but the recording artist wasn’t having it. Pink responded to a fan questioning her comments directly on Twitter by quote-tweeting them. “Y’all are nuts,” she began. “Xtina had shit to do with who was on that song. If you don’t know by now—I’m not ‘shading’ someone by telling it over and over and over what actually happened. I’m zero percent interested in your fucking drama. If you haven’t noticed—I’m a little busy selling.”
The fan has since gone private, but Pink’s tweet is still visible:
Later, Pink clarified in a follow-up tweet that she meant selling “tickets and albums,” in case anyone was thinking, Is Pink getting into real estate???
