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.

Wow, Powerful Video girl! I went through this with my own daughter. It was the most heart wrenching time of my life. I understood why she was doing it. It's easier to feel and heal from the physical pain, then it is from the emotional kind. Even though both leave scares, the emotional ones take longer to heal. But we got through it! Explaining to her that "Keeping up with the Joneses" is no way to live. With everything you see, on how you/we should look and what we should wear to be "F'n Perfect" is just bull to me! It's all about the money, which comes at the high cost of our young girls emotional state of minds.
On a foot note I'd like to say: P!nk (Alecia) reminds me soooo much of my younger self! I was a pain in the azz teenager with attitude too!.. I just couldn't sing like her...lol
