Pink Isn’t Done Making Songs For The Bullied

Wasn’t Pink’s last music video “Raise Your Glass” supposed to be an opus for bullying victims, by celebrating the differences in all of us, or something equally hopeful? Well she’s not done with the bullying theme! “Pretty pretty please, don’t you ever feel like you’re less than fucking perfect,” Pink croons in “Fucking Perfect.” It’s like the live motion version of the terrific new blog Born This Way. Now, remember when Christina Aguilera’s “Beautiful” was America’s anthem to the tormented? Me either.

      This, this is what makes P!nk so awesome.

      F’cking Perfect, Family Portrait, Don’t Let Me Get Me, etc.
      She dives into the things other popstars gloss over.
      She’s giving a voice to a lot of ppl who need one.

      One of the most underrated performers in America, with some of the most lyrical depth and intelligence in pop music today.

      The most “personal” of artists.

      Pink & Cyndi Lauper –two LGB allies from different generations — are high on my list of favorite musicians. I won’t slam Gaga but I don’t appreciate her music the same way. I appreciate her efforts for LGBT folks, but she doesn ‘t move me.

      Christina? Um, not my cuppa.

      Pink is not a GLBT advocate. Rather, she’s a fake gay advocate. She traded on the notion that “lesbians are hot” to appeal to the sleazy straight guy fantasy for girl-girl action. She refused to show any gay male interactions in her videos until Raise Your Glass, and then it was only a 0.5 second kiss.

      Pink also appeared in a very grubby men’s magazine called FHM, a magazine which treats gay men as if they don’t exist. In it, she posed in fishnet stockings and barely-there clothes while lounging next to her fully clothed boyfriend, Carey Hart.

      Pink is either stupid or a whore-cunt. Take your pick.

      Most of you are PC. I’m not.

      I look at issues through the issues lens, not the politics lens. I judge issues on their merits. I look at facts. I call a spade a spade.

      I maintain that a lot of you fail to see the marketing tricks that are put out there in the public domain by entertainers. Everything is marketing. You need to have a cynical attitude towards marketing. That’s because marketing is about making money and not necessarily serving the interests of homosexually oriented people.

      A lot of what is considered “good for the gays” is actually a cynical marketing ploy propagated by female singers. It’s designed to make them money. Nuff said.

      I think you look through the conspiracy lens, and you see it everywhere.

      I love the video. Not the song so much… no one is perfect as they are. Such a message of unqualified praise risks discouraging kids from striving to improve themselves. I get that it’s not as lyrical to say “No one’s perfect, and that’s fine as long as we try to be our best,” but if you’re going to address a social issue, I say put more effort into putting across a more realistic message.
