"I was only kidding." and "I was only messing." all mean fairly similar things. The difference, however, is that the first would be more of a British way of wording it, the second an Americanised version, and the third a more Irish form.

like:
producer: how much pink do you want in the video.
Singer: yes.
A: Haha, it’s just a joke that means they have a lot of something. In the pink example you gave, people are just joking that they had a crazy amount of pink in their video, so its sort of like the producer asked how much and they just said yes instead of how much (because they really wanted pink in their video). It doesn’t really make that much sense, so it might be confusing to understand haha. Hopefully that helps, if not sorry about that kkk
