Pink Raises Her Glass To The ‘Dirty Little Freaks,’ Including You Gays

We knew the music video for Pink’s “Raise Your Glass” would feature same-sex couples. What I didn’t know is that Katy Perry’s “Firework” would beat her to the self empowering trend (see: Christina Aguilera’s “Beautiful”), where society’s cast offs (the fats! the gays! the nerds!) are told to celebrate themselves: “So raise your glass if you are wrong / In all the right ways / All my underdogs.” Messages of empowerment tied to catchy hooks? I’m in! Though with her line about “dirty little freaks,” me thinks she doth Lady Gaga “little monsters” too much.
