Pink Shuts Down Haters While Revealing She's Crushed Long-Running Beef with Christina Aguilera
The singer shut down the hater who suggested that the "What About Us" star wasn't worthy of the MTV Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award that was announced on Monday. The tweet claimed that the only one of P!nk's dozens of videos that was praiseworthy was her 2001 Moulin Rogue clip for a cover of "Lady Marmalade" featuring herself Aguilera, Lil Kim and Mya.
P!nk wasn't having it, hitting back with a tweet about an awful trend she's noticed emerging over the past decade: "we can no longer be happy for each other." She added some super-relevant news in the tweet as well by revealing that she loves Christina and that they have "made amends."
Want to point out an awful new phenomenon of the last 10'years. We can no longer be happy for each other. I ❤️Xtina, we've made amends.... https://t.co/4lcGu2mySV— P!nk (@Pink) August 15, 2017
Though the duo collaborated on the hit cover of the LaBelle track, they reportedly feuded over who would sing which parts on the song. In a 2009 episode of VH1's Behind the Music, P!nk described the source of the beef, saying she was upset when a label exec announced that Aguilera would be singing the song's choice verse at a meeting called to discuss the apportioning of parts.
"I stood up and I said ... 'She will not be taking that part. I think that's what the f--king meeting is about,'" she recalled in the BTM episode. “I just became the a--hole. And it was a role that I figured that I was gonna play a lot in this industry.”
But, they seemingly made up a while back, as P!nk served as an advisor on the 10th season of The Voice in 2016, where Aguilera was one of the coaches. She told Entertainment Weekly at the time, "her and I have had history and it hasn't always been wonderful. I think it just took 15 years and I feel like there was true love and it felt really good."
Okay, that wasn't it, though. The singer went on a tweet run that made it very clear that, as her new single and video state, hate and division are not the answer.
Music brings us all together. The best part of music is- there's room for everyone to win at the same time. Don't be what's wrong w/da world— P!nk (@Pink) August 15, 2017
Let's be an example of inclusion and celebration. You don't have to like me at all, I'm ok with that. Just be a decent person.— P!nk (@Pink) August 15, 2017
And you're fuckin rip van winkle if you've never seen one of my videos .— P!nk (@Pink) August 15, 2017
And in case you already forgot, when yet another troll tried to bait her into feeling silly for retweeting the original hater, P!nk shut that one down, too.

The last time I was fuming was when I turned on the news. Don't give yourself too much credit. I just like to set shit straight. https://t.co/GnxsqcEHte— P!nk (@Pink) August 15, 2017
