Melbourne: Singer Pink has put in graphic scenes of self-harm, attempted suicide and the ravages of anorexia in the video of her new single ‘F...in’ Perfect’.
Pink, 31, accompanied the release of the single with a statement, in which she claimed that she was attempting to promote awareness of the escalating problems of “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),” a website quoted her as writing.
“I personally don’t know a single person who doesn’t know at least two of these victims personally.
“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 favourite rehab.
“It’s a problem, and it’s something we should talk about,” she stated.
Pink, who has played out her own teen struggles in videos for ‘Family Portrait’ and ‘Just Like A Pill’, said recording the song and video was a “very emotional experience”`` for her as she gears up to give birth to her first child with husband Carey Hart.
