Pinks told SiriusXM’s Morning Mashup, “I went in her trailer a long time ago, I think it was when I hosted the Lady of Soul Train or Soul Train Awards.” Whens she went into the trailer she said, “’Hi, would you ever work with me?’” Blige looked at her and said, “No,” Pink after responded with, “OK! I love you, Mary! I’ll see you again!'”
Blige was her idol and even after being denied the opportunity to work with her she respected her even more because she didn’t get strung along. Pink said, “That’s what I love about her. I respect it because so many people will be like, ‘Yeah, call me!'” There is still time for them to possibly work together.
