Pink is frustrated over the ongoing narrative surrounding her years-long feud with Christina Aguilera.
The singer took to Instagram Saturday to say she was “saddened and disappointed” by recent headlines focusing on her relationship with the “Lady Marmalade” collaborator – instead of her just-released ninth studio album, “Trustfall.”
“Every one or two women I’ve had issue with – there are hundreds that I’ve complimented and supported and loved on,” Pink, 43, captioned a selfie featuring her and husband Carey Hart’s 11-year-old daughter, Willow.
“But we don’t talk about that. I wonder when the last time Bradley Cooper or Robert Deniro were asked in interview after interview about any argument they’d ever had. How about Christian Bale? We stick to the art with them, don’t we?”
Pink admitted that while she’d like to have “the same opportunity,” some of the responsibility over recent headlines “lays with me and my inability to lie” along with “my uncanny ability to overshare.”
“My real disappointment lies in the fact that the art can never be the focus when you’re a woman,” she explained.
“The fact that I created one of the most beautiful albums with the most beautiful people -sang my ass off, made myself wholly vulnerable – eleven albums in, selling out stadiums, raising good kids, steadily employing hundreds of good, hardworking people, the only thing they ask you about over and over is a silly fued [sic] from your twenties.”
Elsewhere in the lengthy caption, the “Get the Party Started” singer said she believes in giving an “authentic apology” and “owning your mistakes.”
“I should say less. Every time. Say less. Something I’m working on. This was a good reminder,” she wrote.
“My wish is to share the pains and the celebrations of this messy life through music and on stage. And I’ve accomplished that.”
She concluded her caption with a message to Aguilera, 42.
“To Christina- you know where we stand. Resolved. Onwards and upwards. And thank you all for listening- and for the 25 years Of kick ass love and support. Peace ✌🏽.”
Fans and friends alike quickly flocked to the comments section, including Busy Philipps.
“Honey they’re always ready to reduce women to clickbait. You are and have always been so much more than that- as an artist and human- you’re incredibly powerful. Please keep sharing as much as you do,” she commented.
The “So What” singer, who addressed what it was like working on the “Lady Marmalade” music video set, was forced to clarify that she wasn’t “shading” her fellow Grammy winner after the interview went viral last week.
“Y’all are nuts,” Pink wrote on Twitter, after telling BuzzFeed UK that the 2001 shoot wasn’t “fun.”
She continued, “Xtina had s–t 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. I’m zero percent interested in your f–king drama.”
Additionally, Pink also made headlines for claiming her childhood idol Madonna “doesn’t like” her. She alleged on SiriusXM’s “The Howard Stern Show” that they had an awkward encounter on “Live with Regis and Kelly” nearly 20 years ago.
