Pink and Spears' careers both flourished in the early 2000s, however, the Princess of Pop quickly began to struggle with mental health.

As Spears navigated the crisis in the public eye, her father, Jamie, put her under a conservatorship in 2008. The "Circus" singer later confessed the 13-year conservatorship — which she was freed from in November 2021 — was highly abusive and caused an immense amount of trauma for the 41-year-old star.

"I'm very protective of her, and she's the sweetest person in the world," Pink continued to express of her friend from way back when.

Although the two haven't kept in touch in recent years, Spears will always hold an extremely important place in the "Try" vocalist's heart.

"Also, you're Pepsi. You're flying us to Rome to shoot in a fake coliseum down the street from the real Coliseum. Why are we here? We could have gone to Canada. I don't understand. That's Pepsi money. For a while, everything I saw that was really fancy, I was like, 'That's Pepsi money.' It was bizarre," the "Lady Marmalade" singer explained.

As Pink took a walk down memory lane, she confirmed she carries no regret or remorse for the rocky road of her past.

The superstar — who recently released her ninth studio album, Trustfall — didn't always put her best foot forward.

Pink struggled in her youth, and dabbled in drugs at an early age. As a child of divorced parents, Pink was kicked out of her home before she was able to get her life together at a young 16 years old.

"I signed up for this life. I came into this world very resilient, very relentless, with a sick sense of humor, thick skin and a bleeding heart. So those f***ers couldn't mess with me. They had nothing on my mother or my teachers," she dished of her childhood.

"I lived a lot of lives before I changed my name to Pink," the mother-of-two concluded.

People spoke to Pink in an interview.
