Three-time Grammy winner P!nk has no time for social media drama.

She set the record straight about fan speculation on the singer's alleged beef with Christina Aguilera.

When BuzzFeed asked P!nk to rank her "most iconic music videos one at a time," the "So What" singer did not place "Lady Marmalade" high on her list.

In fact, the rousing burlesque-themed music video featuring P!nk, Christina Aguilera, Lil’ Kim, and Mýa for the Moulin Rouge soundtrack in 2001 was at the bottom of the singer's list of 12 music videos.

"It wasn't very fun to make; I'm all about fun, and it was a lot of fuss," said P!nk of her experience making "Lady Marmalade."

She noted:

"There were some personalities… Kim and Maya were nice."

After acknowledging the music video may have been iconic for fans at the time, she added without going into specifics:

"There was some annoying things happening that day."

Here is a clip from the BuzzFeed interview.

The fact P!nk didn't mention Aguilera–who was the only other artist featured in the song–led fans to draw the conclusion P!nk threw major shade at the "Genie in a Bottle" singer.

Here is the music video for "Lady Marmalade."

In response to accusations of a feud between the two singers, P!nk called out Twitter users for creating drama where there wasn't any.

"Y’all are nuts," she wrote, adding:

"Xtina had sh*t to do with who was on that song. If you don’t know by now."
"I’m not 'shading' someone by telling it over and over and over what actually happened."
"I’m zero percent interested in your f'king drama. If you haven’t noticed- I’m a little busy selling."

The mother of two clarified:

"And by selling- I mean tickets and albums and bake sales and sh*t."

P!nk also mentioned a specific time when the two pop stars shared a moment at P!nk's birthday bash in New York City.

"Also- I kissed xtinas mouth. I don’t need to kiss her a**.”

Her message was loud and clear.





For some, however, her tweet didn't register.



P!nk previously addressed rumors of her rivalry with Aguilera with Andy Cohen in an episode of Watch What Happens Live and attributed any friction between the singers to being “super young.”

“I think I’m an alpha, and she’s an alpha," said P!nk, noting how she was more physical with her altercations and Aguilera was more verbal. "We're very different."

P!nk brought up how women need to be taught how to support each other–especially since she and Aguilera were "very young and new" at the time.

In the same interview, P!nk mentioned the time Aguilera allegedly tried to take a swing at her at a party.

Aguilera cleared the air after watching clips of P!nk's statement.

Aguilera told Cohen during his show's "Plead the Fifth" segment she thought she was going to share a smooch with P!nk during a popular party game.

She said:

"I seem to have a different memory of a night we had at a club where we played ‘Spin the Bottle.’ I have a love memory!
"Look at her, look at me. I wouldn’t swing on her. She could beat my a**. Are you kidding me?"
"She could really beat my a** then!”

During a 2009 episode of Behind the Music, P!nk talked about her negative experience while making "Lady Marmalade," claiming a record executive overstepped and declared:

"What's the high part? What's the most singing part? Christina's going to take that part."

But P!nk wasn't settling for it.

"I stood up, and I said 'Hi. How are you? So nice of you to introduce yourself. I'm P!nk."
"She will not be taking that part. I think that's what the f**king meeting's about.'"

Aguilera shared her recollection of events during the making of "Lady Marmalade" after watching P!nk opening up about her experience.

She told Cohen:

“I know the actual video, she intimidated me because she was heckling me in the audience behind the director."
"And I was like, ‘Oh, what’s going on?’"
“But that’s what she did back then. She’s a different person now. She’s a mom, she’s cool.”

P!nk declared she eventually made amends with Aguilera and even collaborated on a song.

In 2016, the two teamed up on The Voice, where P!nk served as a mentor for Aguilera's team.

P!nk told Cohen:

"We made up on The Voice, because I hadn't seen her in years and years and years and we became moms."
"We grew up and we hugged it out."

P!nk's ninth studio album Trustfall dropped last Friday.

The album released through RCA Records features appearances from The Lumineers, Chris Stapleton and First Aid Kit.
