So What

Song: So What
Artist: Pink
Album: So What

As pop stars go you can’t really get better than Pink. I’ve been a fan of hers since her second record, and really really loved her last album “I’m Not Dead.” Despite being packed with catchy pop-rock tunes on par with the best of what Kelly Clarkson has given us. Though I think she made a mistake with have “Stupid Girls” the lead single. Despite the great message, and very funny video, the SONG itself wasn’t that good. And while Pink found herself with the best selling album of that year in Australia, the subsequent singles failed to hit here. (Though “U + Ur Hand” had a slow build here, especially the club version.)

Late October will see the release of Pink’s fifth album, “Funhouse.” There aren’t many details released as of yet, but lead single “So What” was recently leaked early and has blown up overseas. I took a listen and thought it was fun… and now I can’t stop listening to it. It’s very much in the vein of her past Max Martin produced singles “Who Knew” and “U + Ur Hand.” It’s just crawling with catchy. Catchy chorus, catchy opening, catchy breakdown… it has hit written all over it.

More interesting is the fact that it’s a (kind of) kiss off track to Pink’s former husband, motocross star Corey Hart. They divorced just two years after being married… and guess what? He’s in the video…

Totally odd right? I guess that’s breaking up as best you can in the celeb world.
