Pink began her musical career over twenty years ago with her first album, Can’t Take Me Home, which debuted in 2000. Two decades later, Pink is one of the most influential people in the business. She’s got opinions, and she’s not afraid to share them. In one notorious interaction back in 2003, she was horrified to learn that Prince William wanted her to play his 21st birthday party. She wrote the royal a note saying she was, “disgusted to learn you hunt and kill animals for fun and that you probably rammed a speer through a tiny deer in Africa,” and then encouraged him to contact PETA when he was ready to make amends (via MTV).
So yeah, Pink is not afraid to speak her mind. But there are two sides to every coin, and Pink’s long and loud tenure in Hollywood has earned her her fair share of haters.
Christina Aguilera tried to punch Pink
Christina Aguilera and Pink have a long and messy history. Things started going south when the artists worked together on a cover of “Lady Marmalade” for 2001’s Moulin Rouge. Pink claimed a music label executive walked into a meeting and demanded Aguilera get all the high parts, which did not go over well. People reported that in her Behind the Music interview, Pink opened up about the feud, saying, “I stood up, and I said ‘Hi. How are you? So nice of you to introduce yourself. I’m Pink. She will not be taking that part. I think that’s what the f*****g meeting’s about.'”
Aguilera remembers things differently. The pop star claimed Pink heckled her on the set of the “Lady Marmalade” video, trying to distract her while she filmed her scenes (via BuzzFeed). Either way, after “Lady Marmalade” the starlets’ relationship continued to deteriorate.
Pink revealed in a 2017 appearance on Watch What Happens Live that at the height of the feud, things were so bad Aguilera tried to punch her at a nightclub. “She swung on me in a club, which is hilarious,” she told Andy Cohen. Aguilera denied the accusation, telling Cohen on her own appearance on Watch What Happens Live that she and Pink played spin the bottle that night.
Either way, it seems they’ve finally put the past behind them. Pink ended her interview on Watch What Happens Live by assuring Cohen the two made up on the set of The Voice where she guest-starred as a coach for Aguilera’s team.
Demi Lovato thinks Pink is rude
Pink found herself in hot water again following the 2015 VMAs. Us Weekly reported that the then 35-year-old took to Instagram to express her disappointment in the performances. “I felt sad because music is supposed to inspire. It saved my life. This trash won’t save any kid’s life” she reportedly said. While she did compliment some of the night’s performers, including Mackelmore and Justin Bieber, she failed to mention others, including Demi Lovato.
This didn’t go over well with the “Stone Cold” singer who posted a series of tweets in response to the diss. “Cool For The Summer may not ‘save kid’s lives’ or ‘inspire’ but I’d say Skyscraper & Warrior have done a pretty good job helping people cope with mental illness. VMA’s are sexy and fun. There’s a time and place for everything,” she tweeted.
Pink was quick to respond with her own series of tweets: “Please look for a feud elsewhere. I have no issue with Demi Lovato or anyone else. I actually forgot she performed.” Ouch. Safe to say there’s no love lost between the two pop singers.
Prince was unimpressed with Pink
Like anyone growing up in the eighties and nineties, Pink idolized Prince, but sadly, the feeling was not mutual. Shortly after dropping her first album, the “So What” singer asked Prince if he’d like to collaborate on a song.
Us Weekly reported that in a 2016 radio interview, Pink opened up about their uncomfortable 1998 encounter. After asking him to collaborate, Prince asked her if she owned her masters, which she did not. Apparently, the “Purple Rain” singer told her to “call him when [she] did.” Determined to have the last word, Pink called him a “rude f**k.”
Prince died in 2016, and Pink never had the chance to work with her idol. But she doesn’t have any hard feelings. Pink gave an interview to Extra shortly after the star’s death and clarified the situation, “I love Prince,” she said, “the point is that he was and will be forever amazing.”
