P!nk ‘Fuckin Perfect’

This video is controversial, as its troubled main character deals with schoolyard bullies, mean girls, unsympathetic teachers, controlling parents, anorexia, shoplifting, and, in the clip’s most unsettling (and, be warned, bloodiest) scene, cutting–all in her attempts to find herself and finally feel that she’s “perfect.” But the video’s surprise ending should bolster the confidence of many self-doubting viewers who can relate to the girl’s story. This video is pretty much perfect, and so very timely in a year when the problem of bullying has been in the spotlight. Just try not to get teary-eyed by the end.
