Christina Aguilera opens up about Pink's claim that she tried to punch her
We stan Noughties icons, as a rule, but what we truly stan is two Noughties icons providing us with some previously unverified Page 6-esque gossip.
During an appearance on Andy Cohen's Watch What Happens Live, Christina Aguilera took us back to her Lady Marmalade days, which featured Pink, Lil' Kim and Mya. The 38-year-old was questioned about an alleged - and now infamous - altercation involving Pink, which took place after they recorded the hit single for the film, Moulin Rouge.
Back in 2017, Pink alleged that Xtina had tried to punch her while out at a nightclub. Christina, however, remembers a wholly different series of events.
"I seem to have a different memory of a night we had at a club where we played spin the bottle," she told Cohen. "I have a love memory. Look at her and look at me, I wouldn't swing on her! She can beat my ass, are you kidding me?"
Christina then went onto say that she recalls going in for a kiss with Pink, but she just wasn't having it. "I was excited about a kiss. I was like, 'a kiss and all's good'. And then she put her hand up like this [covering her mouth] and I was like, 'Oh, that's what we're doing? Alright.'"
She proceeded to, naturally, reference her 2002 single, "She didn't want to get 'Dirrty'."
The singer did, however, admit that she was "intimidated" by Pink while they were filming the music video for Lady Marmalade. "It's so funny because I've seen her Behind The Music and I know she has some feelings about how the recording of 'Lady Marmalade' went down," Christina explained. "She was heckling me in the audience a little bit behind the director. I was like, 'Oh, what's going on?' But that's what she did back then."
It all seems to be ok now, though. "She's a different person now. She's a mom. She's cool," she added.
During the same interview, Christina opened up about the fact that she found watching the documentary, Surviving R. Kelly, rather gruelling.
|I was extremely moved by that whole show. It was very heavy for me," she said on Thursday's episode. "I actually went through a lot of," she began to say, before getting emotional and telling the talk show host "let’s not really go there."
"But it absolutely did [touch me]. When you’re in this business, you’re so exposed to so many predators and so many things. Watching what happened to Aaliyah, and everything, you’re exposed to so much at such an early age," she continued.
She then went onto address Lady Gaga's decision to remove her 2013 single with Kelly, Do What U Want (With My Body), from streaming services. "I think she absolutely did the right thing. I love that she spoke and addressed it and showed her support," the singer remarked.
