We watched the video for P!nk's new single, F**kin’ Perfect this morning, and we've got to admit, we went a bit funny somewhere in the middle and couldn’t finish our breakfast.
Now - after half of the media has done a collective *GASP* - the last herself has taken to her blog to defend the rather shocking promo. See her statement below;
"I want art to make me think. In order to do that, it may p**s me off, or make me uncomfortable. That promotes awareness and change, or at least some discussion. That is my intention. You can't move mountains by whispering at them. Cutting, and suicide, two very different symptoms of the same problem, are gaining on us. (the problem being; alienation and depression. the symptoms; cutting and suicide).
I personally don't know a single person who doesn't know at least two of these victims personally. A lot of us have seen certain starlets showing off their latest scars on a red carpet somewhere, usually right before they head back to their favourite rehab (sic).
Making this video was a very emotional experience for me, as was writing this song. I have a life inside of me, and I want her or him to know that I will accept him or her with open and loving and welcoming arms. And though I will prepare this little munchkin for a sometimes cruel world, I will also equip this kid to see all the beauty in it as well.
There are good people in this world that are open-minded, and loving. There are those that accept us with all of our flaws. I do that with my fans/friends, and I will do that with my child, whoever they decide to be."
What do YOU think to it?
