Snap Judgment: Pink's 'Stupid Girls' video

142731__pink_lFor someone who lives in the huge glass house called Hollywood, Pink sure has some big stones. In the Dave Meyers-directed ”Stupid Girls” video, which is scheduled to debut today on MTV.com (we spotted it early here), Pink gets into character to lampoon Jessica Simpson, Lindsay Lohan, Mary-Kate Olsen (pictured), Paris Hilton, breast implants, spray-on tanning, and, um, bulimia. Pink also poses as a political candidate whose televised speech is being watched by a little girl, as if to suggest that girls and women are too obsessed with looks, fame, and money and not enough on loftier pursuits like politics. Pretty funny to watch, but it’s still too easy to dismiss the clip as a slumping artist’s bid for renewed attention, since the song itself is a tired slab of warmed-over club beats.

    You know what, that is one awesome video! I agree that I’m not that fond of the song, but the way she imitated Jessica Simpson was priceless. Definitely a great video from Miss Pink. I just wish she would go back to rock.

    I adore this vid. I’ve talked to those who felt like it was hypocritical, since undoubtedly Pink’s looks were part of her early successes. It’s not like she rose to fame as a big thinker or anything. But I guess it’s demonstrative of just how far the celeb machine has sunk: a pop singer like Pink looks like a brainy genius compared to most of the current celebutants.
    (Don’t get me wrong: I’m a huge fan of Pink’s, but she *is* a pop singer, not a nobel prize winner or molecular biologist.)

    That video was fantastic!! I actually liked the song, I thought the lyrics were great. From her past work, I don’t think she was posing to get attention, I believe she really feels that way. And it was about time somebody expressed it!

    i’m diggin this one…she’s just callin those stoopid girls out.but i think the song is just okay. too much of a hook. its gonna get stuck in my head and i’m gonna be a stoopid boi.

  • Tom Brazelton

    Anything that calls to the carpet these faux-celebrities, famous for doing nothing… Well, that’s okay by me.

    It’s about time Pink came back, i love how she just doesn’t give a F*** about what other people think and she just says how she feels!

    This is why I love pop music. Pink gets to judge the girls soaping up cars in bikinis, but still gets to show off how hot she looks soaping up a car in a bikini. Very Jewel, two years ago.

    I haven’t seen the video, but saw the Olsen twin parody and got the giggles. All this time they were being called a pair of sweethearts, but the second they turned 18 one of them got real trashy in double quick time.
    On the other hand, maybe a shopping cart filled with cans IS the perfect accesory for a pair of ugg boots.

    Pink may be a pop singer, but she at least stands out, goes against the grain, unlike the others. Video looks great.

    i like the vido becuase as far as this country goes, i’m sick of people who just stnad there and are important people. people like the olsen twins and paris hilton make me wanna wretch. pink was tol what to do on her first album, that’s why people may think she’s a fake, but after that she did it her way. no, of course, she’s no great humanitarian, but somebody has to let young girls know these “fakes” aren’t what they appear to be

    I haven’t seen it, but I just love to hear myself type.

  • Zachary

    This videos great. I love the satire in it and how she makes fun of all of them, especialy Paris Hilton who became famous for staring in a porn. At least Lindsay and Jessica have an actual career. Who was she pretending to be with 50 cent?

  • Amy

    I’m not really for making fun of people, but the way celebs like Jessica Simpson and Paris Hilton act really upsets me. They have the right to act however they choose, but doubtful they would act the same when they were pre-teen. Do they realize young girls look up to them and want to act like them? Well, for Jessica and Paris young girls maybe aren’t there main fan base, so maybe they feel there don’t need to be a good role model for them. However, I remember seeing Lindsey Lohan on the cover EW naked in a Striptease-like pose, when she was 18. Teen/pre-teen girls are definitely her main base of fans, what kind of example is that?
    Pink’s video is funny, yet the truth hurts a little. It’s sad that more emphasis is put on looking pretty than being smart. Jessica Simpson’s popularity settles any dispute against this. I’m glad Pink is addressing the issue of Hollywood/celebs putting so much emphasis on image. I hope that Hollywood and celebs listen. I know it is an uphill battle.

    Pretty funny video. Anything that makes fun of stupid girls is fine with me.

  • Nicole

    Terrific video – I hope it gets lots of play on MTV so all the little girls who idolize Paris and Nicole and all the others will see it on a regular basis. I’m not a huge fan of the song – not much of a pop music fan. But the lyrics are great in terms of their message. Kudos Pink!
