Pink is a world-renowned pop star with several big name collaborations to her name, but that doesn’t mean she’s never felt rejection. In fact, Mary J. Blige once turned her down for a duet.
Speaking with SiriusXM’s “Morning MashUp,” the Beautiful Trauma songstress revealed the news. “I went in her trailer a long time ago, I think it was when I hosted the Lady Soul Train, or Soul Train Awards,” she said. “I walked into her trailer and I was like, ‘Hi! Would you ever work with me?’ She just took one look at me and she goes, ‘No.’ I go, ‘Okay. I love you, Mary. I’ll see you again.’”
No hard feelings for Pink, who said that she walked away saying, “I like her style.” “That’s what I love about her,” she added. “I respect it.”
Back in 2000, Pink co-hosted Soul Train’s annual Lady Soul Awards with Shamar Moore and Mark Andrews.
This year, Mary unleashed her latest album, Strength a Woman. Meanwhile, Pink has just unveiled her latest effort, Beautiful Trauma, featuring the Eminem-assisted “Revenge.”
