In nearly two decades of superstardom, P!nk has watched pop singers rise and fall, but one thing remains the same: The media can’t resist a good feud.
The drama between Katy Perry and Taylor Swift (which P!nk says she regrets weighing in on this summer) is just the latest in a tradition of female stars cast opposite one another in elaborate “Bad Blood” narratives—and P!nk says she can’t stand the “girl-on-girl violence.”
“I hate [the feuds]. I despise how readily available they are,” she told The Guardian. “That’s the only thing I’m a little more thoughtful about [these days].”
P!nk hasn’t been immune to the press’ tendency to seize on disagreements and rivalries. In her early career, rumors swirled that P!nk beefed with her “Lady Marmalade” collaborator Christina Aguilera. Last month, the singer shut down rumors of continued bad blood tweeting that she and Aguilera had “made amends.“
