A Very Juicy Oral History of “Lady Marmalade”



[Some tidbits...]

Missy Elliott: We wanted to showcase each of the “four badass chicks from the Moulin Rouge,” bringing together their different skills and personas into a true celebration of diversity, talent, and female unity.

Christina Aguilera: I think we all brought something unique to the table. The message was awesome, because every woman wants to feel good in their own skin. Every woman wants to own their sexuality—whether you want to put on a corset or not.

Tina Landon (choreographer): When we met as a group, I was a little nervous. These are four big, individual, lots-of-personality artists in one room at one time at the height of their careers. I do remember there was a little bit of tension. I think it’s pretty public knowledge that there was tension between Christina and Pink.

Mýa: It was a moment that stood out in that era. If you wanted to say anything bad about it, that would maybe just be a reflection of a boring life. I would never have thought in a million years working with Patti LaBelle would be a part of my career.

Patti LaBelle: ...all these girls are my little girls. Mýa and Pink and Kim and Christina, of course—the singing fool. I call her a baby Patti. That little girl, she threw down
