Pink Weighs in On Years-Long Feud With Christina Aguilera
Time to put one of pop's most enduring feuds to bed — Pink and Christina Aguilera have learned to let it go.
The singers, who first hit their strides in the early-aughts, fell out over the recording of 2001's "Lady Marmalade," during which Pink accused Aguilera of being cold and condescending during sessions. But in a new tweet published Tuesday (August 15) — a response to a fan who'd tried to reignite the feud — Pink finally set the record straight.
"Want to point out an awful new phenomenon of the last 10 years. We can no longer be happy for each other. I [heart] Xtina, we've made amends," she wrote.
And fans went wild — particularly since MTV has since named Pink its 2017 recipient of the Video Vanguard Award to be presented at the Video Music Awards.
"@Pink truly deserves this award, the amount she's done is incredible. One of the best entertainers I've seen! Christina will have her time," one follower wrote.
Pink's previously addressed her feud during a VH1 special, when she alleged that Xtina showed up to initial "Lady Marmalade" meetings and demanded the song's best verses. This did not sit so well with Pink, who happily said so.
"I just became the assh---," she said. "And it was a role that I figured that I was gonna play a lot in this industry."
Pink also expressed her disappointment when her idol, Linda Perry — who inspired a lot of the sound of Pink's Missundaztood — began to work with Aguilera.
"I took it really personally when she started working with other artists, particularly artists that I didn't like," she said. "I don't think imitation is the highest form of flattery. I think it's annoying."
Pink said during a visit to The Voice in 2016 that reuniting with Xtina was a step in the right direction for the pop stars.
"I love when you're around long enough to have a full circle moment and that was a full circle moment for me because in all honesty, I'm a fan of hers," she said. "It was just a really refreshing, nice visit."
