Pink to release Stupid Girls

Pink, Stupid Girls

Story by Jack Foley

HAVING sold over 3 million albums in the UK and 20 million worldwide to date, Pink is set to return with her new single, Stupid Girls, the first track to be taken from her new album I’m Not Dead on March 20, 2006.

Fresh from marrying motocross star Carey Hart in sunny Costa Rica, Pink is gearing up for another assault on the global charts with a track that proves she remains as vivacious and outspoken as ever.

The single is a commentary on the new breed of celebrity currently dominating and obsessing the western world’s media.

Spitting satirical jibes at the slew of heiresses, glamour models, pap pop artists and any other figure of fame who is famous for being famous, Stupid Girls rejects the D list celebrity as a suitable role model for the youth of today.

In a recent survey published by The Sunday Times, girls aged between 15 and 19 were asked which careers they wished to pursue.

63% said glamour modelling and 25% lap dancing in comparison to 4% saying lawyer and 3% doctor – a shocking upshot of the superficial cult status of today’s airhead celebrity.

Keen to reinforce the importance of strength of mind and self-sufficiency, Stupid Girls sees Pink hit the nail on the head as she soulfully demands: “What happened to the dream of a girl president/Where, o where have the smart people gone?”

Accompanied by a superb video that parodies the airhead glitterati, the track perfectly complements Pink’s savvy lyricism with a rocking chorus that effortlessly fuses two of her favourite genres, pop and rock.

Comments Pink: “I’m so glad that I’ll never fit in, that will never be me, outcasts and girls with ambition that’s what I wanna see!”
