P!nk speaks the "Truth About Love"

Toni Burkett


Pop/Rock singing sensation P!nk is back with the same flair and attitude that took her to the top with her newly released sixth studio album.

Most people may remember P!nk’s singles “Get the Party Started,” “Stupid Girls,” “Who Knew,” and “Raise Your Glass.” Now, P!nk is back with the same style she had before.

“Truth About Love” was released four years after her last album. P!nk manages to keep up her usual silly and carefree attitude even while being a new mom.

The first song is called “Are We All We Are.” This song is an uplifting song. It would make the perfect strike song, just like Twisted Sister’s old song “We’re Not Gonna Take It.” It is a song that resembles her old song “Raise Your Glass.”

“Slut Like You” is another song in which she is making fun of other girls. It almost carries the same meaning as her song “Stupid Girls.” It is a fun song that people can party and rock on to.

In her song “Walk of Shame,” P!nk is again being silly. She sings about her mistakes she made the night before and how she wants no one to know. She begs God to let the elevator get to her faster. She promises that if she gets out of this situation she’ll behave and have no more walks of shame.

“Blow Me (One Last Kiss)” was her first single off of the album. This song is very similar to “So What,” the lead single from her last album of greatest hits.

“Try” is her second single. This song is actually a ballad. It is very encouraging. It is actually very relevant to the life of a college student. She says if you get burned you have to just keep going and keep trying.

The CD features performers such as rapper Eminem, singer Lilly Allen, and fun. lead singer Nate Ruess. Eminem and P!nk once again join forces on her song “Here Comes the Weekend.” The two artists collaborated for the first time on his 2010 song “Won’t Back Down” from his album “Recovery.” P!nk and Lilly Allen also let listeners in on the definition of “True Love.” Nate Ruess helps P!nk learn to love again in the song “Just Give Me a Reason.”

As usual, if Eminem is ever in a song, the song is automatically awesome. “Here Comes the Weekend” is a song that is a mature version of “Get the Party Started.” Eminem even takes shots at entrepreneur P. Diddy. P!nk and Eminem both set off the sirens with this song.

P!nk’s new album is nothing short of amazing. “Truth About Love” is the perfect CD to listen to for anyone who needs encouragement, love or just to go crazy and have fun. Any fan of P!nk will love this album. If one is not a fan of P!nk, that person might still be able to find a song or two from this album that might be put on the old iPod. Lil Wayne may have taught “How to Love,” but P!nk teaches the “Truth About Love.”
