Seriously, People are actually mad about the swearing?,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Truth About Love (Audio CD)
First off, I'd like to say this is a great album. From start to finish I was never bored or like, hmm, this song sounds like a filler. She's got stuff to say and yes, we've heard it before, the relationship angst and what not. But how predictable would it be for P!nk to put out an album full of cutesy songs about her daughter? She would've been slammed so hard. Instead she let us know she's here to stay, and I'm thrilled.
Now on the swearing subject. DO YOU GUYS NOT KNOW WHO P!NK IS? HOW DARE YOU BUY A P!NK ALBUM AND BE OFFENDED BY THE F WORD? SHE HAD A SONG CALLED "F****** PERFECT". It's like buying a lemon and being like "oh my god, this lemon, i just didn't realize it was going to be sour". durrr, lemons are sour, p!nk says the f word. Let's move on.
"Try" is a standout song. It's actually one of my favorite P!nk songs in her 6 album career.

I literally just downloaded the album so I haven't listened to it yet. I've been a fan of Pink's for a few years. Like you said, she wouldn't be Pink if she didn't swear! That's why her stuff is labeled [Explicit]. Der.

I had to laugh also at the people mad about the swearing...it clearly states on the cover that the album is explicit. You expect swearing.
I find "Try" the weakest of the whole album.

It hurts their widdle ears, and they can't read, so they don't know the album is "explicit."

Personally, I have no problem with swearing, per se. However, I'm troubled by what I see as (ever-increasing) cynical pandering by the record companies. There's a clear distinction between the two.
While P!nk's image has always arguably been "in your face" the recent trend toward loading every pop song title up with explitives and double-entendres (by the way, the "blow me" play-on-words has been done before - it's not exactly fresh) is, in my view, just kind of transparent and obvious. It's tired and played out, and I don't think it's particularly "edgy" either.
I'm not offended by the WORDS; I'm offended by what seems to be crass commercial opportunism. It all smacks of vulgar posturing just for the sake of being vulgar, which I find kinda weak. It would be far more rebellious to do a top 40 pop song without resorting to the obvious "hot buttons" which I can't think anyone (outside of a few, isolated, vocal, sheltered, puritanical types) REALLY finds all that "shocking" anymore. How about artists being SHOCKING with their ideas, rather than empty words? Now THERE'S a novel concept.
I've got nothing against P!nk and there's no need for anyone to say, "So don't listen to it." (After the initial listen to see if I would like it, I haven't.)
I just think, in general, it's sad how the record companies, in an effort to
keep making boatloads of money off the backs of a select few artists, have become even more calculated and pandering (and maybe even a tad bit contemptuous of the music-buying public). Their total disregard for the creation of vital, creative, original pop music (as if such music and the pursuit of profit are mutally exclusive) is profoundly depressing. Well, I say F#&@ THAT!!!
No offense! :)

Anyone who complains about the lyrics or song titles is obviously not a fan of Pink's career. Pink is gritty, upfront, and ballsy with her songs. That is simply Pink's own personality, and I commend her for not trying to change that aspect of her music throughout her career.
