I did, and feel like I'm diminished in some small but likely important way.

That probably happens a lot when you come into contact with "pink".

is this post-ironic... in the sense that this actually makes you do/think the opposite of what's intended?

...or?

Are you guys familiar with Pink's music?

I thought this girl's career disappeared five years ago.

Katy Perry is more popular than her.

Does Pink still have fans?

Do you live in the land of no radio?

I hated Pink until I saw her drive a lawnmower onto a stage:

YouTube - Pink ARIAs 2008 Performance

I don't think you can redeem yourself better than that.

Pink is a hack.

A lot of critics tend to position her as some kind of saving grace for noughties female pop music, somehow rating her as more authentic and not as low-brow as her peers. I attribute this critical over-rating of Pink to her outspokenness, her tomboyishness and her leftist political concerns, something more favourable to critics.

Her music is by no means factually better than Avril, Britney, Hillary, Ashlee, Lindsay, Fergie or Miley. In fact I reckon all these women (with the exception of maybe Ashlee and Miley -of whom I only know one song) have released stuff that are miles ahead of any of the crap that Pink has ever released.

Pink is awful.

Her rebellion against the gimmicks of the popular ultra-cute pop stars is just as much of a gimmick. I have no respect for her, and this song does not change that. She tries way, way too hard to be a rebel.
