F**kin' Perfect is a moving call to awareness about a growing problem surrounding depression, numbness and powerlessness that leads to cutting and suicide.

P!nk shows us her personal road in a bold and blunt message that is wrapped in soft voice of compassion and encouragement. "I want them to know I'm aware. I have been there. I see them."

Her video portrays a young woman that can't seem to do anything right at home or school which results in confrontation, conflict, anger and ultimately inward isolation. One scene is very graphic showing the victim cutting into herself the words "FUCKING PERFECT" as if the signature brings some sort of sadistic relief from inner torment.

The story ends courageously as she realizes she is "enough," that her gifts and talents lie immediately before her and that the world's opinion doesn't matter because we are nothing less that "F**kin' Perfect."

P!nk writes in her introduction to this video:
"Cutting, and suicide, two very different symptoms of the same problem, are gaining on us. (the problem being; alienation and depression. the symptoms; cutting and suicide). I personally don't know a single person who doesn't know at least two of these victims personally. A lot of us have seen certain starlets showing off their latest scars on a red carpet somewhere, usually right before they head back to their favorite rehab."
Her intention, as usual, is to ruffle a few feathers and shake a few sleepers as she points out "You can't move mountains by whispering at them."

Hat's off to P!nk and to the artists that take personal tragedy and transform it into a fire of hope for struggling souls young and old.
