Live shows have lately become a living diorama of society’s social deficits and the atrophy of human decency and decorum. A few months back, we had the orchestra orgasmer. Earlier this month, a fan injured Bebe Rexha by hurling his cell phone at her face during a performance, and another fan made his way up to the stage and slapped Ava Max. And this past weekend, a fan oblivious to anything but her own “Pick me! I wanna go viral!” desires tossed a bag of her powdered mom up on stage, much to the pretty well-handled bewilderment and disgust of Pink. It was such a baffling offering that it overshadowed another fan at the same show passing a strange gift to the stage that Pink received with much more enthusiasm: a huge wheel of brie cheese!
Over the weekend, Pink headlined the British Summer Time Festival in London’s Hyde Park. According to the New York Post, about four songs into her set, 43-year-old Pink noticed a large bag of white powder that a fan had thrown on the stage. Siiick. Free cocaine to fuel her wildly unnecessary aerial stunts! Or was it? Turns out, it wasn’t a bag of drugs. It was a bag of mom. The fan had thrown their mother’s ashes onstage. Hey, I still would’ve snorted that shit (to be polite).
It feels unnatural to write that new mom Paris Hilton “had thoughts,” but as we know, she maintains that her dumb bimbo label is just an “archetype!” (stereotype). According to Paris’ recently released and brilliantly titled memoir, Paris: The Memoir, in which she admitted to lying about voting FOR Donald Trump, she shared that she didn’t love the very persona she’s leaned in to for her entire time in the public eye being poked fun at when Pink spoofed her sex tape, One Night in Paris, in her Stupid Girls video. And though the sex tape and then Pink’s video happened almost twenty years ago, and Paris just brought it up again and immortalized it in her book, she says she doesn’t hold a grudge.
The year is 2023, and we’re still talking about the behind-the-scenes messes on the making of 2001’s Lady Marmalade remake starring Christina Aguilera, Pink, Lil’ Kim, and Missy Elliot. Mya was also there. While the video looked like a pitchy good time in the best little whorehouse in Hollywood, behind the scenes, Pink and Xtina were fighting. While the memory of this stale beef should have been left behind amongst the hazy recollections of butterfly clips and cargo pants, it somehow always comes back when someone’s got an album or circus tour to promote. After slamming people for making assumptions about the famous feud and stirring shit up (a case of pot calling the kettle pink), Pink talked about the feud some more and said Christina wanted to fight her over a chair.
You would think two artists like Pink and Madonna would be the kind of friends who sit next to each other at awards shows, texting back and forth with comments like “You see what this bitch is wearing?”. But alas, that can only be a fantasy because of an incident that occurred many years ago at daytime talk’s equivalent of Hell Live! With Regis and Kelly. And during a recent appearance on The Howard Stern Show, Pink gave a breakdown, and it becomes clear exactly why she and Madge will never be friends.
Pink Said She Didn’t Enjoy Making “Lady Marmalade” Because Of “Some Personalities,” Then Denied Her Comments Were A Swipe At Her Former Nemesis, Christina Aguilera
Pink has a new album and an upcoming tour to promote, so it’s time for her to do that thing where she talks some shit to assert her hard-ass persona. This time though, it was a little more thinly veiled than “Fuck Rolling Stone,” but still not a great mystery to be solved. Pink took our drama-loving all the way back to 2001 the other day when she said Lady Marmalade was her least favorite video to make due to “fuss” and “some personalities.” And as we know from tales of long ago, Pink and Christina Aguilera butted Fraggle-wigged faux high-class whore heads back in the day. Pink may or may not have heckled Christina on the Lady Marmalade set, and Christina may or may not have swung at Pink at a club. So, everyone assumed Christina was the “personality” from Pink’s recent comments. But, Pink responded to that (very logical) assumption by denying she was shading Christina.
