22 years later, Pink recalls the 'fuss' on the set of 'Lady Marmalade'

In 2001, the first Harry Potter movie was released and trucker hats were all the rage, and Pink joined a group of "badass chicks" to give "Lady Marmalade" a new spin. Since then, the three-time Grammy Award winner has added more than two decades of performances and more than 50 music videos to her repertoire. However, when Pink ranked her BuzzFeed UK videos in the top 12, she placed her iconic Moulin Rouge at the top! The soundtrack featuring Lil' Kim, Mya and Christina Aguilera was firmly at the bottom. She explains that the reason she ranked Patti LaBelle's cover last had everything to do with the experience of filming it.

"It wasn't really fun to make; I just did it for fun, and it was a hassle. They have some personality ," Pink elaborated to British media on February 17, adding, "Kim and Mya are both great." As for Of the video's place in the larger pop culture canon, she added, "I guess it's iconic, but I remember crying the whole time because my skin didn't like makeup. It was just... something annoying happened that day. things.”

Pink also added that the shoot in the early 2000s "feels like two lifetimes ago, or even eight lifetimes ago," "but did you see my booty and my abs?"

Some speculated that Pink was covering for Aguilera during the interview, given Aguilera's complicated history and the fact that she has only called Lil' Kim and Mya kind. (Producer Missy Elliott also served as host for the video.) On February 18, when one user tweeted that Pink “should kiss the [Aguilera] legend Ass because she allowed it" The singer didn't hold back to set the record straight when she appeared on the song.

"You're all crazy, Xtina has nothing to do with who sang that song. If you don't know by now - I'm not going to 'shade' someone by telling what actually happened over and over again," Pink responded. "I have no interest in your damn drama. If you haven't noticed - I'm busy selling stuff... and by selling stuff - I mean tickets, albums, bake sales, whatever." In a follow-up tweet, she concluded: "And - I kissed xtina on the mouth. I didn't need to kiss her ass."

This isn't the first time the subject of "Lady Marmalade" drama has come up - or female friendship in general. In Pink's 2009 VH1 Behind the Music special, she recalled how record executive Ron Fair once walked into a room and asked Aguilera for a major role. "He didn't say hello to any of us, but he said, 'What's the best part? What's the most sung part? Christina is going to play the part,'" Pink claimed at the time. "I stood up and said 'Hi. How are you? Nice of you to introduce yourself. I'm Pink. She wasn't going to be in that part. I guess that's what the fucking meeting is for."

The feud between the women escalated, with Pink even claiming Aguilera punched her in the club. "We were very young and very new to the whole [fame] thing," she said on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen in October 2017. "I think I'm an alpha and she's an alpha and I'm used to physical arguments and she's used to verbal arguments. We're just very different."

Even so, she added, they reconciled earlier that year while working together on NBC's "The Voice." "She's so talented. Deep down - and I've had my bad days - she's a really sweet person," Pink shared. "I mean, it's funny. I laughed. It's funny. I haven't seen her in years. We became moms, we grew up, we embraced it. It's that simple. I'm about it feels good."

Two years later, Aguilera appeared on "WWHL" and denied punching Pink. "I'd seen her 'Behind the Music ' [special] and I knew she had some feelings about how the recording of 'Lady Marmalade' went down and stuff like that," she said in 2019. In the video, she scared me a lot because she was questioning me in the audience behind the director, and I was like, "What happened?" But that's what she did back then. She is a different person now. "
