Pink says a story she told about an old feud with Christina Aguilera has now become the main focus of press interest surrounding her latest album.
The singer, who recently released her latest album, “Trustfall,” shared that she accidentally sat in Aguilera’s chair while they were working together, which upset Aguilera. Pink took to Instagram to explain that she was disappointed with the cover, hoping people would focus on her art instead.
“I’m so saddened and disappointed by the narrative surrounding some of the press I’ve done around my album,” she wrote.
“While part of the blame lies with me and my inability to lie, and my incredible ability to overshare, my real disappointment is that art can never be the focus when you are a woman.”
She continued: “The fact that I created one of the most beautiful albums with the most beautiful people – I sang my ass off, I made myself totally vulnerable – eleven albums, selling stadiums, raising good children , regularly employing hundreds of good, hard-working people, the only thing they ask you over and over again is a silly quarrel about your twenties.
She added that “for every woman or two I’ve had issues with, there are hundreds I’ve complimented, supported and loved. But we don’t talk about that.” Pink added that there is a double standard when it comes to men and women in the entertainment industry, writing, “I wonder when the last time Bradley Cooper or Robert De Niro were asked interview after interview about an argument they allegedly never had. And Christian Bale?
Ultimately, she says what really matters is apologizing and “owning your mistakes.”
“To Christina – you know where we are. Resolved. More and more,” she wrote.
Pink is featured as a guest on “Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace?” New episodes air Fridays on HBO Max and air Sundays at 7 p.m. ET on CNN.
