Conclusion

Pro-social Content

On “Try Too Hard,” P!nk seeks honesty, speaking ill of wanderers who “go with the flow” and take cues from the media. Her “Love Song” notes that intimacy is risky (“I’d rather bleed with cuts of love than live without any scars”). “Save My Life” condemns a woman’s drug use, but ...

Objectionable Content

A strong profanity mars that cut and others. P!nk spews the f-word throughout, often while angrily telling people off (“Last to Know” and a hidden track). She plays up her bad-girl image on “Trouble” (“I’m trouble, y’all/I disturb my town”), “God Is a DJ” (“I’ve been the girl with the skirt pulled high ... middle finger in the air”), “Tonight’s the Night”(“I hope I don’t end up in jail/But then again I don’t really care”) and “Humble Neighborhoods” (she refers to her crew as “bad people” who “do bad things”). Cocky liner photos show the singer smoking a cigarette and wearing immodest outfits. “Oh My God” is sexually explicit, and the title is repeated often. Songs also seek comfort in alcohol (“Unwind”) and embrace polytheism (“Waiting for Love”). A salacious bonus DVD compounds the problems.

Summary Advisory

P!nk prides herself in preaching independence (read: in-your-face rebellion) to disenfranchised young girls. Her language is blue. Her morals are gray. Pray teens don’t follow her lead on Try This.
