Pink's 'F**kin' Perfect' Video Gives Suicidal Teen a Second Chance
If P!nk's new music video for "F**kin' Perfect" doesn't make you cry or cringe at some point, you've got thicker skin than we do.
The clip for the pop star's latest single, which has reached No. 30 on the Hot 100 so far, chronicles the painful struggle of a girl who is battling personal demons from a very young age. By the time she's a high school teen -- played to wrenching effect by "Napleon Dynamite" alum Tina Marjorino -- she's wearing brooding eyeliner and getting high in a bathroom stall, while her classmates blissfully try on prom dresses.
Video: P!nk, "F**kin' Perfect"
Just before it's too late, though, it gets better. In a harrowing scene that shows the girl cutting herself in a bathtub (warning: it's grahic), a relic from that same disturbing childhood ultimately gives her a second lease at life. P!nk video's story directly just once, when she toasts to the girl's newfound happiness from across a crowded room...and it's enough to make you want to raise your glass right along with them.
