Possibly my favourite popstar ever, P!nk has premiered the video for her new single Raise Your Glass. The single is the first to be taken from her first Greatest Hits compilation Greatest Hits…So Far!!! Will you be buying? I know I will.
P!nk does what she does best in this video and that’s just that she generally makes very funny videos that have lots of scenes in them to make you laugh or at least smile. No hatred for GaGa here but P!nk manages to do this without resorting to 10 minute art pieces. I’ve recently come to the conclusion that without a doubt, P!nk is the greatest live performer of our generation and her videos are always hugely entertaining.
As for the song Raise Your Glass, well it’s catchy and fun and I’ll have no problem “throwing my glass (instead of my hands) up in the air sometimes” to this but it’s all a little safe. It doesn’t really see P!nk take any risks and is lacking in the biting social or personal commentary of her other songs. This song could have been written for anyone really. However, this is only for a Greatest Hits package so she gets a pass for now. I just hope she isn’t this risk-free whenever she gets round to releasing her sixth studio album.
