This isn’t exactly on topic, but it deals with what brings many of us here to this site anyway. There is some sexual material in this video.
Thanks to Navelgazing Midwife for the link!

GREAT Video! I am soooo learning to love myself more because of The Shape of a Mother!
What do you mean?? Perfectly ON topic!! That was the best video ever, and I wish my daughter was old enough to watch it. I heart Pink!
I love Pink and this is another reason why.
The images of the girls in the bathroom, the bulemic episode, hurt to watch, because it was me not too many years ago.This video is wonderful.
loved it. i’m going to be emailing that to a few girls I know (though I am a bit of a Mary-Kate fan, and applaud her for getting help…I don’t know for sure why she was really included in that, she seems pretty grounded, except the partying and stuff maybe).
I am old enough to be Pinks mom and I love that girl. She has done a service to young girls by being herself and pointing out how ludicrous our infatuation with all the current celebrities who are untalented young women, striving for fame for the sake of fame. To the other poster, Mary-Kate is not to be admired. She is a sad emaciated girl who is deeply emotionally troubled; she and her sister worked their entire childhood since babyhood, they are a long line of proof this does not create a happy well-rounded young adult. Her life should be a cautionary tale for parents that think they want to get their child into the TV industry.
I can’t stand Pink’s music, but that was terrific. Thanks for posting it. I’ll be showing that one to my daughter.
I like Pink, and I like the message, but it’s interesting that Pink is also hot and toned, and gets to show it off in her video (hello, the carwash scene?). I’m not saying she shouldn’t use it to her advantage if it helps her get in the limelight, just that it’s a bit ironic, and that someone who didn’t look like Pink might have a harder time getting her message across. Just food for thought.
True, Julie. But I think, in this particular video, she was using it purposely. I have, in the past, seen other videos where the song’s message was similar, yet the women singing the songs were still showing off their “perfect” bodies. Pink is doing so (in this video) in character, so to speak. Other times it’s not. OH, you know what reminds me of that? Jane Magazine. I’ve loved her magazines since Sassy, but it’s always bothered me that they talk the feminist talk but still have the skinniest models. I don’t see Pink’s video the same.
I have always loved Pink. Thanks for posting this. This happens to be my daughter’s favorite song, she is almost 20 months old.
What a great video. I wish my daughter was old enough to show it to (she’s 10 months). I’m still too caught up in how poorly I feel I look but, damn it, I don’t want to be a stupid girl!

I just wanted to mention that I’ve seen Pink in interviews, and heard her say that she has had a very tough time with her self image. Producers and others in her industry have pushed her to get breast implants and to be LESS muscular. So even though we saggy mom’s would KILL for a body like that, we can be our own worst enemy! LOL Even Pink has her issues. Truly, beauty is in the eye of the beholder! Some of us don’t behold ourselves that well! LOL. Not attacking your comment, just elaborating a little.I love this video. Thanks to the one who sent it in. I’d never seen it.
