Pink Recalls Kissing Christina Aguilera, Hating Her ‘Lady Marmalade’ ‘Booty Shorts’

Pink, to no surprise, is up for anything. Ahead of the premiere of the documentary “Pink: All I Know So Far” at the Hollywood Bowl, she caught up with Variety’s Marc Malkin and discussed the possibility for a “Lady Marmalade” reunion.

“I want to see the reunion with all the young girls now,” Pink said. “I never say never about anything. All the fun stuff that’s happened in my life has been almost by accident.”

The 2001 version of Patti LaBelle’s “Lady Marmalade” became a fan favorite from the “Moulin Rouge” soundtrack. In the music video, the powerhouse group donned burlesque-inspired looks in line with the theme of the movie, which took Pink some time to get used to.

“I was not happy about my outfit,” Pink said. “I did not want to be in booty shorts, but I got into it. Cameras started rolling and I started feeling myself. Now I look at it and I’m like, ‘Oh my god, that body. Why didn’t I appreciate it?’”

One thing she might not be up for again is playing spin the bottle with “Lady Marmalade” collaborator Christina Aguilera. As they reminisced about her career, Malkin recalled Pink’s birthday party in New York City, where the two pop stars shared a kiss.

“When I was painted instead of a shirt? Was is that one? Yes, she kissed me,” Pink remembered. “That was a fun party.”

Despite the happy memory, she shut down a future recreation of the kiss.

“Nope, I have a 9-year-old dude,” she said, laughing at what her daughter would possibly say: “Is mommy kissing Christina?”

“Pink: All I Know So Far,” which chronicles the singer’s life on the road up to her first performance at Wembley Stadium in England, hits Amazon Prime on May 21. See the full interview below.
