Singer "Pink" in support for Self harm and suicide awareness.

Post by KarmaChameleon on Sun May 13, 2012 6:14 pm

Pink has defended her decision to include shocking images of
self-harm, attempted suicide and anorexia in the video for her new
single – insisting she wants to raise awareness of the controversial
issues.

The pregnant pop star has debuted the promo for her new track
“F**kin’ Perfect,” which sees “Napoleon Dynamite” actress Tina Marjorino
playing a teenager struggling with bullying and self-esteem issues who
turns to cutting herself.

Pink has now opened up about the controversial video, revealing she
fully expected it to “ruffle some feathers”, but hopes viewers will take
a positive message from it.

In a post on her Pinkspage.com website, she writes, “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… I
want art to make me think. In order to do that, it may p**s me off, or
make me uncomfortable. That promotes awareness and change, or at least
some discussion. That is my intention…

“Cutting, and suicide, two very different symptoms of the same
problem, are gaining on us… 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.

“It’s a problem, and it’s 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. I don’t support or encourage suicide or cutting. I
support the kids out there… I want them to know I’m aware. I have been
there. I see them. Sometimes that’s all it takes.”

Pink also admits her pregnancy made the experience of filming the promo even more harrowing for her.

She adds, “Making this video was a very emotional experience for me,
as was writing this song. I have a life inside of me, and I want her or
him to know that I will accept him or her with open and loving and
welcoming arms. And though I will prepare this little munchkin for a
sometimes cruel world, I will also equip this kid to see all the beauty
in it as well.”

Yet another case to show that we are not alone.
