Pink gets candid about Madonna and Linda Perry giving Beautiful to Christina Aguilera instead of her
Pink has revealed details about the tension with her childhood musical hero, Madonna, and also addressed the lingering controversy over 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 singer if she was friends with big stars like Material Girl, to which she matter-of-factly replied: ‘No. Madonna didn’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 am a polarizing individual.
Stern then responded, saying, “Madonna is a polarizing person,” to which the mother-of-two agreed, while apparently looking back on how she idolized her when she was young.
She is a man. Fuck she 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 longstanding controversies involving her musical heroine, Madonna, and her former collaborator, Linda Perry, during an appearance on SiriusXM’s The Howard Stern Show on Wednesday.
‘She tried to play me on Regis And Kelly and it’s not me. It didn’t work out,” she shared, again prompting the host to try to get to the core of any potential feud between the two stars.
‘What does that mean he tried to play you?’ Stern asked.
It’s such a silly story. I love Madonna, and I love her no matter what. I still love her no matter what. She was a huge inspiration to me, but the fact that I was fangirling and dying to meet Madonna was misrepresented, when in fact she invited me to her dressing room. So, I only made a joke when Regis pulled me out and said, “I heard you were falling on yourself backstage (at a Madonna show). How does it feel?”
“I was like, ‘I thought you wanted to meet me,'” he said of the joke on the daytime talk show years ago. “It didn’t work for us.”
Stern summed it all up by saying, “Madonna took the joke personally.”
Stern also brought up how there has been talk for years about possible bad blood between Pink and her former collaborator Linda Perry over the songwriter-producer giving her song Beautiful (2002) to Christina Aguilera instead of her, even after she pushed for the song.
“Linda tells you, ‘I don’t hear you on that and I gave the song to Christina Aguilera. It was her biggest hit,” Stern says in preparation for her question, eliciting a smile or two from Pink.

Linda Perry controversy: The Get The Party Started star also revealed that she “felt betrayed” when Perry kept “working with everyone else because she later became the pop hitmaker, and I was like, ‘No. I thought I would.” that we had was special’
While Pink was quick to share that there was a problem with Madonna, she didn’t initially go there when it came to Perry.
‘The good thing about Linda is that she will bring out the perfection in you. She did it with Christina. That song ended where she was supposed to be. Christina sounded amazing on that song because Linda will tell you, “Fuck your stupid vibrato. That’s what she used to tell me all the time. I sang Phantom Of The Opera and Les Misérables,” she explained of her style at the time. .

She continued: “And everyone was like, ‘Why the hell are you looking for Linda Perry?’ And I was like, “You don’t understand. You do not understand. That woman saved my life. And she is so talented.
