Pink and Eminem both found fame at the turn of the century and haven’t stopped having hits since. They even recently added to their tally of chart smashes with collaboration “Revenge.” When the colorful pop diva first approached the no-holds-barred rapper to work on the track, though, his initial response left a lot to be desired…

Pink herself was born Alecia Moore in Pennsylvania in 1979 to a salesman father and nurse mother. However, she acquired her stage name – derived from the Reservoir Dogs character Mr. Pink – when she began performing on her hometown’s club scene aged just 14. Two years later, meanwhile, she formed Choice, an R&B trio who signed to L.A. Reid’s LaFace Records.

Unfortunately, though, the group failed to achieve any notable success. It wasn’t all bad news for Pink, though: after Choice had disbanded, she managed to score a solo record contract with LaFace. And from there, her career went from strength to strength. Debut single “There You Go” would become a top ten hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 2000, for example; the track’s parent album, Can’t Take Me Home, then went on to sell two million copies. What’s more, the singer would later win a Grammy for her performance on chart-topper “Lady Marmalade.”
