30. So What


Guess what? Once upon a time Pink (real name Alecia Moore) was married. The singer’s rocky relationship with Carey Hart ended on a friendly basis. Hart was reportedly caught cheating on his wife. Ouch.

In the aftermath of their split, Pink set out to compose a truly empowering song. The song suggests she is all right, but the accompanying video suggests something completely different. It features Pink as she cuts down a tree where their names are engraved. Is she angry? No, she’s psychotic!
