Video: Pink – F*ckin Perfect
Possible Nominations: Best Female Video, Best Pop Video, Best Direction
Why It Should Be Nominated: She didn’t crash-land on Earth like Katy Perry. She didn’t face the apocalypse like Breezy and Bieber. She didn’t dance around with a biblical biker gang like Lady Gaga. Pink went with a good old fashion video that told a story — a heart-wrenching one — and that was all she needed to make one of the most powerful videos of the year, in our humble opinions.
“F*ckin Perfect” follows one troubled girl trying to make her way through a life filled with abuse, torment, and depression. Just when it seems she’s going to end it all — in a shockingly graphic scene, she cuts “perfect” into her arm and seemingly waits to die in her bathtub — she realizes she has something to live for: painting. The hobby eventually leads her to a new life with a husband, a daughter, and happiness.
If MTV feels like rewarding a raw, honest, beautifully-acted video, “F*ckin Perfect” is f*ckin perfect for the job.
