Throughout her long career, Pink has never been one to bite her tongue — even if it meant calling out a music legend!
During a radio interview with Nova FM's Fitzy & Wippa on Thursday morning, the Just Like Fire songstress spoke out on the tragic passing of Prince — and remembered calling him a "rude f*ck" at the beginning of her career!
When asked if she had ever crossed paths with the Purple Rain singer, she admitted:
"I actually had an argument with Prince once… It was about owning your own masters."
For those who don't know, owning your own masters refers to an artist's rights and ownership of their original recordings — and Prince was very protective of his music rights.
"I asked him to collaborate with me. He asked if I owned my masters. I told him ‘no, I didn't' because I had just actually got a record deal so it was a little early for me to be demanding my masters back. He told me to call him when I did. I told him he was a rude f*ck, then I went on stage."
We bet he wasn't expecting that reaction from an up-and-coming artist! Ha!
Due to her young age at the time, the pop/rock star didn't realize the funk icon was just trying to help her out, adding:
"I was 19 at the time, so I didn't see people from good places back then."
The now 36-year-old made it clear that she has nothing but love for Prince, lamenting:
"With Prince and [David] Bowie and others…the world lost a lot of sparkle this year and it's left a hole in my heart because I don't know what's going to replace it…These people are irreplaceable and it's just really, really sad."
We couldn't agree more! Take a listen to a clip from the interview (below)!
