The incomparable and super talented P!nk never disappoints when it comes to portraying thought-provoking issues in her music and videos, and her latest creation "Perfect", is added to her list of greats. The music video has developed somewhat of a controversy around it because of its graphic contents: a girl being bullied, depressed, and self-mutilation. Personally I like the song and video. P!nk is a talented artist who always makes music and videos touching on topics no one else will. Watch it for yourselves if you haven't already and tell us what you think:
In regards to the critical response to the music video, P!nk stated on her official website:
“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”.
Don’t forget to purchase P!nk’s ‘Greatest hits…So Far‘ album, which includes all her hit singles since her debut, as well as her latest releases: “Raise your Glass“, and “Perfect“.
