Pink has hit out at Madonna's claims she rejected her from the lesbian kiss episode at the MTV VIDEO MUSIC AWARD - insisting it was her who turned the opportunity down.

At the American awards show last month (28AUG03) BRITNEY SPEARS shocked the audience by locking lips with Madonna, who also kissed Christina Aguilera after they performed LIKE A VIRGIN together.

The veteran singer has since claimed other singers, including Pink, FAITH HILL and Natalie Maines, were refused parts in the performance.

But Pink has hit back, insisting she, Britney and NO DOUBT star GWEN STEFANI were first choice and accused Madonna of covering over the fact she was a stand in.

The JUST LIKE A PILL singer says, "I was actually supposed to do that. It was supposed to be me, Gwen and Britney. Me and Gwen backed out of it and they got Christina.

"But I know how Madonna's mind works. She was the boss. She was the groom. While everyone else was her 20 years ago. And I am nobody's b****."
