The Truth About Love

Blow Me (One Last Kiss)

Year 2012

Director Dave Meyers

The video begins with Pink having a picnic with her love interest (Sebastian de la Forza). The two lean in for a kiss, which is interrupted by him taking a phone call. Pink splashes him with red wine, and walks away through the trees. She meets another man on his motorbike (Alexander Ercheverria) and goes home with him. He draws a portrait of her. Pink watches through the window as many female guests arrive for a party the man has organised. During the party, she dances with one of the women until she is interrupted by the man who brought her home. Pink wears a black suit with her hair pushed back and dances with the woman (Mosh). The man gets down on one knee and proposes. Pink accepts by giving him her hand but is disappointed to find out the proposal was meant for her dance partner. During their wedding ceremony, Pink is dressed completely in black, as if she is attending a funeral. A flying bike appears above the guests (Andreas-Holm Hansen), which is carrying a heart-shaped balloon. The balloon pops, and red liquid covers the guests as Pink sings and dances cheerfully. She joins the driver of the flying bike, and they fly away together at the end of this video clip across the countryside, into the sunset, under a bridge, over trees and up close to a big hill on the high flying bicycle with eagle wings. A colored version was also released. MTV’s James Montgomery assured Pink’s fans that she hasn’t changed, while crediting the video for its angry and funny nature, saying “While your heroine might be saying she’s a changed woman, the ‘Blow Me’ video proves that she’s not. It’s just as angry as her previous clips, and nearly as funny too.”


Try

Year 2012

Director Floria Sigismondi

Try was directed by Floria Sigismondi and choreographed by the Golden Boyz (who have worked with the likes of Madonna and Britney Spears) and stunt choreographer, Sebastien Stella. It was inspired by the Apache dance, a highly-stylized Parisian street performance. “Making this video was the most fun I’ve ever had in my entire career,” said Pink. “I never wanted it to end. It’s my favorite video ever.”

Pink took to her Twitter page to record her mother, Judith’s, reaction after showing her the risqué dance moves on the clip. “My mom, after seeing the new video… ‘Wow, honey. I’m speechless. And uncomfortable. No one can ever say you play it safe.'” Pink’s love interest is played by Broadway dancer Colt Prattes.

A reenactment of the video was performed during the 2012 American Music Awards where Pink received a standing ovation and was praised by critics for her ever-growing artistry. Billboard ranked “Try” the second best performance of the night, with the first being Gangnam Style.

The video is summed up in two locations: The indoor sequence where Pink performs a dramatic dance routine with her partner Colt Prattes, and the outdoor scene where they collide into one another in a desert. The video features flashes of color and is heavily metaphorical, portraying an unhealthy, tormented relationship through artistic usage of the two performers’ bodies.


Just Give Me A Reason (feat. Nate Ruess)

Year 2013

Director Diane Martel

The video shows Pink lying on a mattress in the middle of an artificial marsh, with fog surrounding the set and a star-studded background. The video is highly symbolic and its storyline is indirect, with references supporting the song’s theme, including a teddy bear, a TV floating on the surface of water, the water itself and a wall made of wood in the background. The scenes include Pink’s solo mattress scene, another with Nate Ruess shows the two singers singing the song in a white, blank set, and a third scene showing Pink and her husband Carey Hart embracing and diving.


True Love (feat. Lily Rose Cooper)

Year 2013

Director Sophie Muller

The video directed by Sophie Muller (who also directed videos for Trouble and I Don’t Believe You) features Pink, her husband Carey Hart and her 2 year old daughter Willow. It is the fourth music video that Hart appears alongside P!nk. The video is a melody of flashing and swirling colors. Pink stated that she has no time for a dramatic music video, (like her previous videos for Just Give Me a Reason and Try, who show Pink’s emotional and dramatic side) due to her being on her sold-out worldwide tour, backstage footage of which is featured in the video. Lily Allen was filmed separately; and during her short part in the song she is shown cutting vegetables and throwing them into a blender.
