Mya wants to get the band back together
A reunion for the ‘Lady Marmalade’ girls may be on the horizon, with Mya calling for a reunion in a new interview.
The track, which was originally released in 1974 by Eleventh Hour, was re-recorded by Mya, Lil Kim, Christina Aguilera and Pink for the soundtrack to 2001’s Moulin Rouge!. It subsequently went to number one in both the US and UK.
Now, Mya has spoken about ‘Lady Marmalade’ and its surrounding performances, and expressed her desire to reform the group and perform the track again. “It was a lot of fun,” Mya told ET Canada, “and I really hope that we can reunite and do the song.”
She also dismissed longstanding rumours of an on-set feud between ‘Lady Marmalade’ performers Aguilera and Pink, saying she saw no disagreement between the singers. “I wish I did,” she added. “I’m the mediator usually in situations. ‘Ah can we please keep the peace.’ But no, I don’t remember any cat fights, we just got the job done. And we came to give a show at the end of the day!”
“We were super young and super new at the whole thing,” Pink explained on Watch What Happens Live. “I think I’m an alpha and she’s an alpha. I’m used to taking my altercations physical and she’s used to having them verbal. We just are very different.”
“Women have to learn how to support each other. It’s not taught to us on the playground,” she added.
Asked if she was every physical towards Aguilera, Pink said: “Actually she swung on me in a club, which is hilarious. I was like, ‘What’s happening right now?’”
“She’s so talent and, deep down, I’ve had bad days too. She’s a really sweet person. We made up on The Voice. I laughed, it was funny. I hadn’t seen her in years and years and years, but we became moms. We grew up. We hugged it out. It’s the simple. I feel so good about that. We did a song together.”
