P!nk Says Christina Aguilera ‘Took a Swing’ At Her In a Club

By Hayden Wright

(RADIO.COM) – P!nk and Christina Aguilera’s legendary beef boiled over during the making of “Lady Marmalade,” but there’s even more juicy backstory than fans realize. On Watch What Happens Live, P!nk described a run-in with Christina (presumably in the early 2000s) that turned physical.

“You have to learn — women have to learn how to support each other,” she said. “It’s not taught to each other on the playground. Actually, she swung at me in a club. Hilarious! I was like, ‘What’s happening right now? What’s happening?’”

P!nk stressed that everything’s fine between the two singers. now. On the show, she expressed her respect for Christina’s voice and described how they reconciled.

“She’s so talented and deep down I’ve had bad days too,” P!nk said. “She’s a really sweet person. We made up on The Voice. I mean, it was funny, I laughed. I hadn’t seen her in years and years and years.”

The singer said their personalities as young and hungry divas made a combustible combination.

“We were super young and super new at the whole thing, and I think I’m an alpha, and she’s an alpha,” she said. “I’m used to taking my altercations physical and she’s used to having them verbal. We’re just very different, we’re very different. And we were very young and new.”

The Beautiful Trauma singer shared her theory about why things are better now.

“We became moms,” Pink said. “We grew up. We hugged it out. It’s that simple. I feel so good about that.”

5 Best Songs on P!nk’s ‘Beautiful Trauma’

By Hayden Wright P!nk’s seventh studio album Beautiful Trauma is out today and it contains all the hallmarks of her greatest music: gutsy vocals, confessional themes and catchy melodies everyone can enjoy. Though P!nk (to her credit) doesn’t deviate much from her previous successes, she dabbles in folktronica and conveys some fresh, unexamined wisdom through her lyrics. Related: P!nk Slays Medley, Earns Career Honor at VMAs “I named the album Beautiful Trauma, because life is f—ing traumatic,” she told The Guardian. “There’s natural disasters at every turn and there’s kids starving and there’s Trump and there’s all kinds of stuff going on, but there’s beautiful people in the world that are having a blast and being good to each other and helping others. ” Beautiful Trauma gives fans the P!nk they know and love with more maturity and gravitas to tackle the ups and downs of marriage, career and the state of the world. As always, her combination of candor and vulnerability produce a relatable, unpretentious feeling of empowerment. That brightness shines through even the darkest songs on Beautiful Trauma. Here are the five best songs on P!nk’s new album: “Beautiful Trauma”
The album’s title track might be its strongest. On “Beautiful Trauma,” P!nk sings tenderly over tinkling piano, which gives way to a fierce beat and singalong chorus. She shares her “perfect rock bottom” and struggles to keep a relationship alive in the face of challenges. It’s an epic, dramatic track with stylistic range and plenty of heart.

“I Am Here”
On “I Am Here,” a choir backs P!nk up as she takes listeners to church. The midtempo track contemplates her mortality and imagines “where people go when they go.”

“What About Us”
If “Beautiful Trauma” is peak P!nk then the album’s lead single (a Billboard Hot 100 hit) follows a similar recipe: Soaring vocals and a soft electronic keyboard, power notes and wistful sentiments. In the hands of a less gifted star, the chorus might sound cloying and sentimental but P!nk imbues it with a grit and honesty that defines her best work.

“Secrets”
P!nk tries her hand at folktronica on “Secrets,” which layers acoustic guitar over a bouncy, disco beat. Lyrically, the singer examines the things we hide from one another and subtle EDM elements take the song to an unexpected place.

“But We Lost It”
On the album’s first slow song, P!nk describes losing her way in a relationship: “I’m still the girl that you chased all around the world / I haven’t changed, I’ve just replaced all the chains with pearls.” Her tumultuous marriage to motocross star Carey Hart has informed her perspective on love and P!nk has never hesitated to “go there” with her doubts and fears in song.

Pink’s husband, Carey Hart posted a clip of the moment, writing, “This is pretty f—— amazing. Wifey @pink killed it with #GunsAndRoses!!!!

“Patience” appears on the EP G N’ R Lies.

IMPACT: P!nk’s ‘Beautiful Trauma’

By Hayden Wright When P!nk burst onto the pop music landscape, she stood out from a crowd of (mostly blonde) female pop stars whose sound and style felt—in a word—repetitive. P!nk faced that homogony head-on in lyrics on gritty, self-aware anthems like “Stupid Girls” and “Don’t Let Me Get Me.” Since those early days of the 21st century, P!nk has marched to the beat of her own drum, true to her signature, rock-inflected pop sound.  And this still holds true with her latest release Beautiful Trauma. Related: P!nk Slays Medley, Earns Career Honor at VMAs In a sense, she’s skated past the pressure of being the World’s Biggest Pop Star, a mantle nobody assumes for very long. Instead she’s maintained her position in the pop Pantheon by virtue of heart-shattering ballads and balls-to-the-wall party songs. P!nk’s catalog is a showcase of strength: The strength of her voice, the strength of her will, the strength of her impulses, convictions, regrets and disappointments. And let’s not forget her physical strength, immortalized in iconic live performances. Hers is the music of major-key bar fights and messy breakups, wrapped in self-acceptance and brazen nonconformity. On Beautiful Trauma, P!nk’s seventh studio album (and first in five years), the singer promises more excellent P!nk songs—with all the debauchery and tenderness those words entail. “I cant believe it’s been 5 years,” she told Karen Carson and Jeffrey Jameson for Radio.com.  “I never stopped writing, I’ve been writing the whole time.  When I got off tour I maybe took 6 months.” The power chord of heartbreak runs through the single “What About Us” and the title track “Beautiful Trauma,” which she said was a no brainer to call the album as a whole. “I always try to have a song title be the album title.  When that line in the song was written I was like, “Oh that makes perfect sense.” That’s my life, its my husband, its myself, the world.  I think that life is really traumatic but I also think it’s full of beauty and nature and beautiful people and laughter and love.” On the album, P!nk says she steered clear of weepy ballads in favor of more high-energy songs. “There was no other goal than to not have an album full of slow, sad songs, because that’s all I had for a while,” she said. “And I just wanted to record better than I have before. I’ve never been that great of a recorder, [I’ve always been] better live.” And nearly two decades into her career and as a mother of two, P!nk seems game to embrace the part of role model and has hopes for how the music can shape the the world. “Music brings people together.  I love music, I love what I do.  When I look at who’s on my stage with me it’s my family and we all look very different from each other and we get along swimmingly and it all works. And that’s what I want the world to be.” Beautiful Trauma, debuts Friday October 13 in stores and on streaming services.

Pink’s Love Letter to Eminem Leads to ‘Revenge’

By Robyn Collins Pop superstar Pink discussed a track on her upcoming album Beautiful Trauma that she has kept under wraps. The singer told UK TV that her collaboration with legendary rapper Eminem, on a track called “Revenge” came from a love letter. “I reached out to him in this case,” Pink said. “I love him. I’ve always loved him. I think he’s a lyrical genius, and I just wrote him a love letter. I had written this song. I had went to the studio and drank a lot of wine, I wrote ‘Revenge.'” Related: P!nk Says Trump is Doing a Terrible Job, Maintains Hope “And then, I went home and drank more wine because that’s what you do when you’ve already drank a lot of wine — you think more wine is a good idea — and I wrote him an email and I said, ‘I love you. I’ve always loved you. I’ve loved you since you gave me your autograph at the 2001 MTV Music Video Awards. I love that you always work with the same people.’ I just wrote this love letter, and he just wrote back, ‘OK.'” Though the title would lead us to believe differently, the mother of two assured the host that “Revenge” is a funny song, “It’s funny. It’s fun. There’s nothing serious about it. It’s fun. My mom loves it.”

(RADIO.COM) – P!nk doesn’t think President Trump is doing a very good job, but she hasn’t given up hope.

“@POTUS you are doing a terrible job. Worse than every other job you’ve done terrible at. Do you seriously have time to worry about the NFL?” she wrote on Twitter.

“I’ve seen people change and turn their lives around,” she continued. “There’s still hope for you @POTUS. It’s what the world needs.”

< p style="text-align:justify;">Those comments set off a lot of activity on the singer’s Twitter account, and she engaged fans who didn’t agree with what she had to say.

“I’m attempting positivity and motivation b/c I’m hopeless. And now you’re mad at ME?” she responded to one troll’s critique.

“I think this world needs HOPE and LOVE and POSITIVITY and we all need some inspiration to not be S—– ALL THE TIME,” she continued.

She concluded her thoughts on the matter writing: “I pray for love and change and light. I also pray I never become as cynical and snarky and s—– as some of the people on my twitter feed.”

P!nk is set to perform the SAP Center in San Jose on Friday, May 18th.
