F---in Perfect by Pink

Album: Greatest Hits… So Far!!!Released: 2010Charted:

  • This ballad is the second single by pop singer Pink from her greatest hits collection, titled Greatest Hits… So Far!!!. The track was released onto Pink's official website on November 3, 2010.

    According to Pink, she started writing the song about her husband (Carey Hart), but it shifted meaning to her fans, and little girls and eventually, "it was about this thing inside of me that I didn't even know yet," she told Entertainment Weekly. "It's just all of it.
  • The track opens with Pink declaring that despite all her flaws, she's "still around." Once she gets to the chorus, the potty-mouthed singer comes over all motivational and tells the listener that they should look past their imperfections and see themselves as "F---in' Perfect."
  • The song was produced by Swedish songwriter/producer Max Martin. The Scandinavian hitmaker has collaborated with Pink on several of her previous hits including "So What," "Please Don't Leave Me," and "Raise Your Glass."
  • The clean version recorded for radio is titled "Perfect."
  • The song's music video was directed by Dave Meyers, who has previously collaborated with Pink on many occasions before including her VMA winner "Stupid Girls." The clip tells the story of a woman who from an early age battled a eating disorder and cutting. She is eventually able to deal with her personal demons and becomes a successful artist. Pink commented on her website: "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."

    The lead role was played by American actress Tina Majorino, who is best known to many for the character of Deb in the 2004 film Napoleon Dynamite.

Although generally not a fan of P!nk (don't hate her; don't love her), I was curious about this song. The video for this song had me sobbing like a baby. Having spent my teen years with an incredibly low self-esteem, battling a bit like the girl in the video, I felt it keenly. I think this video should be mandatory viewing for all teenaged girls (yeah, boys, too). I know I'm making it a point to show it to my daughters when they're closer to their teen years (they're 8 and 10, so it won't be too long). Kudos.Karen - Manchester, Nh
