P!nk Targets Stupid Girls

Pink was interviewed on Andrew Denton’s Enough Rope program tonight on ABC Australia. Andrew showed a short clip of Pink’s music videos, “Stupid Girls”, in which she critiques the message that woman have to dumb down to be successful. The music video clip for Stupid Girls was filmed in November 2005 and first aired in January 2006. It puts into graphic imagery the song from the album, I’m Not Dead. In it a young girl is offered two choices by a good angel and an evil angel.

Pink washes car in Stupid Girls Music VideoPink acts out the consequences of living only for image, by lampooning the poses taken by performers Paris Hilton, Jessica Simpson and Lindsay Lohan.

Through the music video women are shown being humiliated as they succumb to procedures and lifestyles in attempts to produce a popular body image. Girls use their toothbrushes to bring up their food in the bathroom. There are carwash shots reminiscent of Paris Hilton’s Carls Jr Burger ad and Jessica Simpson’s music video. At the end the little girl opts to play with a football rather than play music.

Pink, on PinksPage, says that a lot of people are relieved that someone has finally said something about the mindless epidemic of unhealthy girls out ther promoting consumerism and escapism.

And believe me, I am not the only one talking about it. And then there are those that are missing the point altogether, or just don’t like it coming from me. There is absolutely nothing wrong with being sexy, feeling sexy or dressing sexy. My point is only this: ‘SMART’ and ‘SEXY’ are not oil and water. They can actually work together. You don’t need to dub yourself down in order to be cute. You also don’t have to have the latest $10,000 hand-bag to be cool. You can have braces and play the trumpet and you are still just as important as the cheerleader or the skateboarder. I, on the other hand, had braces and played clarinet… which of course makes me even cooler.

Lyrics for Stupid Girls

Stupid girl, stupid girls, stupid girls
Maybe if I act like that, that guy will call me back
What a paparazzi girl, I don’t wanna be a stupid girl

Go to Fred Segal, you’ll find them there
Laughing loud so all the little people stare
Looking for a daddy to pay for the champagne
(Drop a name)
What happened to the dream of a girl president?
She’s dancing in the video next to 50 Cent
They travel in packs of two or three
With their itsy bitsy doggies and their teeny-weeny tees
Where, oh where, have the smart people gone?
Oh where, oh where could they be?

Maybe if I act like that, that guy will call me back
What a paparazzi girl, I don’t wanna be a stupid girl
Maybe if I act like that, flipping my blonde hair back
Push up my bra like that, I don’t wanna be a stupid girl

(Break it down now)
Disease’s growing, it’s epidemic
I’m scared that there ain’t a cure
The world believes it and I’m going crazy
I cannot take any more
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
Disasters all around
Would despair
Their only concern
Will they f**k up my hair

Maybe if I act like that, that guy will call me back
What a paparazzi girl, I don’t wanna be a stupid girl
Maybe if I act like that, flipping my blonde hair back
Push up my bra like that, I don’t wanna be a stupid girl

[Interlude]
Oh my god you guys, I totally had more that 300 calories
That was so not sexy, no
Good one, can I borrow that?
[Vomits]
I will be skinny

(Do ya thing, do ya thing, do ya thing)
(I like this, like this, like this)
Pretty will you f**k me girl, silly as a lucky girl
Pull my head and suck it girl, stupid girl!
Pretty would u f**k me girl, silly as a lucky girl
Pull my head and suck it girl, stupid girl!

Maybe if I act like that, flipping my blonde hair back
Push up my bra like that, stupid girl!

Maybe if I act like that, that guy will call me back
What a paparazzi girl, I don’t wanna be a stupid girl
Maybe if I act like that, flipping my blonde hair back
Push up my bra like that, I don’t wanna be a stupid girl
