P!nk took to Twitter over the weekend to clarify her interview comments, denying she was "shading" anyone by repeating some of the alleged behind the scenes drama while working on "Lady Marmalade." Many assumed she was criticizing Christina Aguilera with her remarks.
"Y'all are nuts Xtina had shit to do with who was on that song. If you don't know by now - I'm not 'shading' someone by telling it over and over and over what actually happened," she wrote. "I'm zero percent interested in your f---ing drama. If you haven't noticed- I'm a little busy selling."
"And by selling- I mean tickets and albums and bake sales and shit," she added, before concluding, "Also- I kissed xtinas mouth. I don't need to kiss her ass."

"Lady Marmalade" may be known for being one of the most "iconic" female collaborations of all time, but it's safe to say singer P!nk doesn't have the fondest memories of shooting the music video.
In a new interview with BuzzFeed UK, the pop star was asked to rank 12 of her most popular music videos, including "Lady Marmalade," "So What," "Try" and more. And seemingly without hesitation, P!nk threw "Lady Marmalade" at the bottom.
The 2001 hit, which appeared on the "Moulin Rouge!" soundtrack, featured P!nk, Christina Aguilera, Mya and Lil' Kim, as well as Missy Elliott, who produced the song, and can be heard in the intro and outro.

During her interview with BuzzFeed UK, P!nk was given a printed still from one of her music videos, before she then had to choose where to rank the video from one to 12.
After she was shown a photo from the "Lady Marmalade" music video, the 43-year-old singer said, "Well, there's 'Lady Marmalade.' I'm gonna put that right down here at 12."
She was then asked why she decided to rank the burlesque-themed video last. "It wasn't very fun to make," P!nk replied. "I'm all about fun, and it was a lot of fuss. There were some personalities ... Kim and Maya were nice."
"I guess it is iconic, but I remember I kept crying because my skin didn't like the makeup," P!nk added. "It was just ... There was some annoying things happening that day."
After she had ranked all 12, the Grammy winner reflected on the final order, admitting that she was "not happy" with the result. When asked what she would change, P!nk said she would swap a few of the videos, including moving "Lady Marmalade" up from last place to the 11th spot.
Still, the mother of two didn't clarify or change what she originally had to say regarding her negative experience filming the "Lady Marmalade" music video. BuzzFeed UK posted the snippet to TikTok, asking fans what they think P!nk was "alluding to at the end" of the clip.
Although P!nk didn't specify which "personalities" she was referring to and didn't name names, the only other people aside from "nice" Lil' Kim and Mya who were involved in the song were Missy and Christina, the latter of whom P!nk famously had beef with in the past.
The ages-old feud reportedly began after the recording and filming of the music video for "Lady Marmalade."
During an appearance on "Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen" back in 2019, Christina spoke about the past beef between herself and P!nk, specifically regarding "Lady Marmalade."
"I know she has some feelings or whatever about how the recording of 'Lady Marmalade' went down and all that," she recalled, before claiming, "I know [on] the actual video, she intimidated me because she was heckling me a little bit behind the director and I was like, 'What's going on?' But that's what she did back then."
P!nk previously opened up about collaborating with Christina for "Lady Marmalade" in a VH1 "Behind the Music" special back in 2009.
"[Label executive] Ron Fair walked in. He didn't say hi to any of us and said, 'What's the high part? What's the most singing part? Christina's going to take that part," she said at the time, per People. "I stood up, and I said 'Hi. How are you? So nice of you to introduce yourself. I'm P!nk. She will not be taking that part. I think that's what the f---ing meeting's about.'"
Meanwhile, in addition to the "Lady Marmalade" drama, P!nk previously claimed that Christina once took a swing at her at a nightclub.
In a "Watch What Happens Live" interview in 2017, the "Let's Get It Started" singer attributed their differences to the fact that she and Christina both have alpha personalities and they were both "super young and super new" when they began their singing careers around the same time.
However, during an appearance on "Watch What Happens Live" in 2019, Christina denied P!nk's allegation that she once swung at her.
"Look at her, look at me. I wouldn't swing on her," she laughed. "She's like -- she can beat my ass, are you kidding me? She could really beat my ass then."
However, the "Beautiful" singer later added that P!nk, is "like a different person now, she's a mom, she's cool."
She also cited P!nk as having the best vocals of her "rivals" from back in the day: P!nk, Britney Spears, Mandy Moore and Jessica Simpson.
