Playing Pink Regrets Calling Prince a 'Rude F**k' When She Was Younger: 'I Didn't See People Coming From Good Places Back Then'

Pink's growth as an artist has led her to have new perspective on a past encounter she had with late rock legend Prince.

The 36-year-old singer appeared on Australian morning show Fitzy and Wippa, where she recalled a rather prickly conversation she said she had with Prince when she was 19.

"I asked him to collaborate with me and he asked me if I owned my own master," she said (via Huffington Post), adding that because she didn't, things took a sour turn. "He told me to call him when I did and I told him he was a 'rude f**k.'... Then I went on stage."

"I was 19 at the time," she added, revealing her change of heart. "I didn’t see people coming from good places back then."

After Prince died last week at the age of 57, Pink paid tribute to the "Purple Rain" singer on Twitter and Instagram, writing, "The world has lost a lot of sparkle this year :(."

RIP ☔️
