She may not be everyone’s taste but Pink is one of those people that I really admire. She’s made a very successful career by not playing the Hollywood game by the rules. Her look doesn’t confirm to the pretty girl, nor does her body. Yet she’s hot as hell. Her music is unapologetically honest and auto-biographical to the point where I wonder what her husband thinks at times.

Tonight she was awarded with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard award at the VMA’s and she gave a ripping speech about staying true to yourself using a story about her daughter to illustrate her point. Check that out above.

Below is her video to the new single “What About Us”. As usual she’s sticking up for the disenfranchised and the people who don’t fit in or the marginalised. It’s a great song and a beautiful video.

This week I’ve hit the angry phase about being made redundant from my job and being dumped by date-boy. Both events made me question my value, my skills and my self-worth so I need to get myself back on track, listen to some good music and get moving.
