Pink gets candid about Madonna and Linda Perry giving Beautiful to Christina Aguilera instead of her

Pink has spilled details on tension with her childhood musical hero Madonna and also addressed lingering controversy about her former collaborator Linda Perry in a candid new interview. 

During an appearance on SiriusXM’s The Howard Stern Show on Wednesday, the iconic radio host asked the songstress if she was friends with big stars like the Material Girl, which she quickly responded matter-of-factly: ‘No. Madonna doesn’t like me.’

After Stern tried to get her to elaborate on the subject, the Pennsylvania native added, ‘Some people just don’t like me. I’m a polarizing individual.’

Stern then shot back and said ‘Madonna’s a polarizing individual’, which the mother of two agreed, all while seemingly thinking back at how she idolized her as a youngster. 

‘She is man. F**k I loved her,’ Pink, 43, confessed, before explaining why she thinks Madonna doesn’t like her.

Open and honest: Pink, 43, tried to clear up two old controversies that involved her musical hero, Madonna, and her former collaborator, Linda Perry, during an appearance on SiriusXM’s The Howard Stern Show on Wednesday

‘She tried to kind of play me on Regis And Kelly and I’m not the one so. I didn’t work out,’ she shared, which again prompted the host to try to get at the core of any potential feud between the two stars.

‘What does that mean she tried to play you?’ Stern asked. 

It’s just such a silly story. I f***ing love Madonna, and I love her no matter what. I still love her no matter what. She was such an inspiration to me, but it sort of got twisted around that I was like fangirling and was dying to meet Madonna, when in actuality she invited me into her dressing room. And so, I just said a joke when Regis brought me out and said, “I heard you were just falling over yourself backstage [at a Madonna show}. How does it feel?””

“I’m like, “I thought she wanted to meet me,”‘ she said of the joke on the daytime talk show years ago. ‘I didn’t work out for us.’

Stern summed it all up by saying, ‘Madonna took the joke personally.’

Stern also brought up how there’s been chatter for years about possible bad blood between Pink and her former collaborator Linda Perry over the songwriter and producer giving her song Beautiful (2002) to Christina Aguilera instead of her, even after she lobbied for the song.

‘Linda says to you, “I don’t hear you on that and I gave the song to Christina Aguilera. It was her biggest hit,’ Stern says in the set up to his question, which got a smile or two from Pink.

‘The great thing about Linda is she will pull perfection out of you. She did that with Christina. That song ended up where is was supposed to be. Christina sounded incredible on that song because Linda will tell you, “F**k your stupid vibrato. That’s what she used to say to me all the time.I sang Phantom Of The Opera and Les Misérables,’ she explained of her style at time.

Eventually, the What About Us star revealed she had ‘a very complicated relationship’ with Perry after working on two of her studio albums: Missundaztood (2001) and Try This (2003), as a writer and producer.

She then shared a story of how she used to ‘trip on acid at 12 and 13 years old and sing out of the attic [Perry’s song] Drifting at the top of my lungs until the cops were called because her voice — I could feel myself in her,’ she admitted.

Matter-of-factly: Pink didn't seem too bothered when she shared that Madonna doesn't like her'

After sharing that she had to find Perry after that experience as an up-and-coming singer, Pink said she ‘felt betrayed when she went on to work with everybody else because then she became the pop hitmaker, and I was like, ‘No. I thought what we had was special.’

She continued, ‘And everyone was like, ‘Why the f**k are you looking for Linda Perry?’ And I was like, “You don’t understand. You don’t understand. That woman saved my life. And she’s so talented. And she went on to be all these things. That was the part that hurt, it had nothing to do with Christina. I had to do with all of it.’
