In support of the upcoming release of [artist id="3205943"]Pink’s[/artist]
new album Greatest Hits … So Far!!!, the spunky pop star is hard at work filming a video for the single “Raise Your Glass.”
When MTV’s “The Seven” caught up with Pink on the set of the new clip, she revealed new plot points in addition to the gay-wedding theme she talked about last month. The video will be her “celebration” for underdogs.
“I don’t know if it’s going to be huge, but it is new,” she said of “Glass.” “I did three new songs [for the album]. It was good timing. I had been on the road for two years and I hadn’t written anything and I wanted to write a song about underdogs.”
Pink said that she’s far from perfect herself and has a soft spot for imperfections. “Whatever the case may be, there’s nothing cooler than a pair of effed-up teeth or freckles,” she said of different variations of beauty. “I like all the dirty stuff.”
In the behind-the-scenes video shown on “The Seven,” Pink talked about taking on a sumo wrestler in the clip. “The sumo wrestler represents Wall Street, the big banks,” she explained. “It’s the middle-class working family against ‘the man.’ Another psychotic scene.”
Regarding the album’s title, Pink said she chose the So Far phrase because she still has a lot of music to make. “I still feel like I’m 17. I’m just hitting my stride,” she said of her adventurous spirit. “[I like to try] new things so I don’t get bored. I’m 30 but can still hang better than most of them.”
Pink’s new album drops Nov. 16 and will include “Get the Party Started,” “There You Go,” “Don’t Let Me Get Me,” “Just Like a Pill,” “Family Portrait,” “Trouble,” “Stupid Girls,” “Who Knew,” “U + Ur Hand” and “Dear Mr. President,” as well as newer Pink tracks “So What,” “Sober,” “Please Don’t Leave Me” and “Glitter in the Air.”
