I spent the entire weekend re-organizing my house that had been sadly neglected during all my adventures last year. To break up the monotony of sorting papers and going through piles of crap – I occasionally got up and danced around to some of the cool tunes I had downloaded using my xmas iTunes gift card (thanks mom!)
The one that seemed to be on repeat the most was P!nk’s Raise Your Glass. I’ve mentioned before that I love P!nk. I think she’s fun and sassy and her songs are wicked catchy. She has a great voice and her Take No Shit Attitude is exciting. In an age of total PR Constructed Celebrity Soundbites, it is so refreshing to hear someone say “Kanye West is the biggest piece of sh– on earth. Quote me,” as she did during the stupid Kanye/Taylor Swift VMA nonsense (and to top it off, referred to him as “douche bag”!! LMAO!)
So raise your glass if you are wrong, in all the right ways – what a great sentiment. It is fabulous that “kids today” have a pop star telling them it’s OK to be different, that being unique and weird is cool and to celebrate it, not let anyone tell you different.
Her musical slamming of celebutard girls like Paris, Lindsay and Sisters Olsens and Simpson is pretty ballsy and brilliant:
I’m so glad that I’ll never fit in, that will never be me – outcasts and girls with ambition that’s what I want to see – HELL YEAH PREACH IT SISTER!!!
So whether she’s telling skeevy guys to fuck off (U+UR Hand), telling her (then estranged husband) her life is better without him – to his face! (So What) or doing acrobatics while singing live about desperation and need (Sober) – she’s always outrageous, fun and honest. She’s awesome and yet another GirlCrush of mine who is pregnant! What’s up with that??
