Watch P!nk's New Video "F**kin' Perfect"

A Personal Note From P!nk:

I'm sure my newest video for "F**kin’ Perfect" will be much like some of my other videos, which basically means I expect it will ruffle some feathers.

My favorite books, art pieces, films, and music , always have something jarring about them. I want art to make me think.
In order to do that, it may piss 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 favorite rehab.

Its a problem, and its something we should talk about.
We can choose to ignore the problem, and therefore ignore this video, but that won't make it go away.
I don't support or encourage suicide or cutting.
I support the kids out there that feel so desperate/numb/powerless, that feel unseen and unheard, and can't see another way.. I want them to know I'm aware. I have been there. I see them.
Sometimes that's all it takes.

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.

I've been through some rough 15 years and I have been a cutter and attempted suicide. I listen to your song every time life gets me down and it helps me get through. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. <3

Dear Pink,
Thank so much for your song, "f***in Perfect". It saved my life. Your song has really helped me during a emotionally difficult time in my life. It is not just a song about troubled teens, it's about anyone who has issues or been involved in scandals. Last year, I was scandalized over Facebook by a woman that I had lied to over the internet. She originally told me "no forgiveness necessary" but then turned on me and told her cousin about my lie. They talked about my wrongdoing all over her cousin's FB wall. I was accused by her cousin of all kinds of horrible things. For months, I felt horrible and no longer liked myself. Listening to your song, after coming back from an amazing experience as an English Camp Counselor in Korea, helped pick of the pieces. Whenever I think back to my FB scandal, I remember the words in your song "change the voices in your head, make them like you instead" and feel better. Thank You Pink. Thank You for writing song that says we are all special regardless of hangups. You saved my life from this emotional hell.
