#94 – P!nk

26 02 2010

Alecia Moore first entered the Australian consciousness a decade ago, with an R&B by-numbers single called “There you go”, in whose video she rode around on a motorbike and gave bad girl attitude to an X-boyfriend. The bogan liked this, and propelled it to #2 on the Australian singles charts. It was just the beginning.  Since then, Pink has had an additional TWELVE solo singles chart in the Australian top 7, but only three in her native USA. So what’s she been doing that gets the antipodean bogan so damn enthused? Shitloads.

Pink met her husband (a motocross racer) at the 2001 X Games, and has since acquired the ability to ride motorbikes. She used this skill to woo prime bogan love-object Rove McManus, allowing a national TV audience to witness her teaching Rove how to be x-treme. Rove reciprocated by fawning shamelessly, and exhorting his audience to supply Pink with their bogan bucks. You see, Pink speaks the bogans’ language. She rebelled against conventional literacy and social norms by titling her second album “M!sundaztood”, and regularly spells her stage name “P!nk”. The bogan appreciates the gesture, as it considers itself m!sundaztood also, LMAO.

Primarily, Pink’s marketing strategists targeted teenaged female bogans, with a defiant message of how unique and uncontrollable she is. The teenaged female bogan empathises with this message, and is controlled by the marketers into buying yet another concert ticket, and buying yet another album to be unique, just like the other individuals in Pink’s target demographic who have sent the thing 10x platinum. P!nk (lol) undertakes stadium tours of Australia every seven minutes, allowing the fans to always have something new to purchase. This is always accompanied by another spruiking visit to her favourite little buddy on Channel 10. Then, as the adult femme-bogan wants nothing more than to be a teenage femme-bogan again, they embraced P!ink with a similarly slavish enthusiasm, waxing lyrical over how ‘cool’ and ‘empowering’ she is, effectively demonstrating how tenuous their grasp of those words was.

In the same way that the bogan trusts Pink with its money, it also trusts her as a source of both domestic and foreign political knowledge. The bogan’s knowledge of international relations was augmented by her track “Dear Mr. President”, which commandeered populist anti-Bush sentiments. She also (on behalf of PETA) lectured the Australian wool industry on the practice of mulesing. She later admitted that her position was “bullshit”, saying “”I probably could have done a lot more (research)”. The bogan forgave her public misinformation campaign, because she was “so real”.

Five albums in, she toured Australia again in 2009, selling over 650,000 tickets, mainly to bogans. Her ability to fleece the bogan had become unsurpassed – topping John Farnham’s Whispering Jack tour for the most Australian shows in a tour, including a record 17 shows at Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena. What could possibly be left for greedy Alecia’s bogan cash vacuum? Her management pondered this, and eventually found the answer. She has recently signed a three year contract to be the face of V8 Supercars (the trans-generational bogan institution), including a special effects-laden TV commercial. A commercial that features her baring her midriff, chomping down on an entirely non-phallic sausage, falling into the arms of a big, strong V8-man, readjusting her breasts and a midget. The very embodiment of female bogan empowerment. That’s right, not content to surpass Farnsey in ticket sales, she’s decided to go after his rusted-on baby boomer audience, and cannibalise him completely. He’ll be tickled pink.

I notice alot of bogans wearing p!nk attire since attending her concert((s) – TBL).

I think you may have brought up the chicken and the egg paradox.
Did she choose her name to appeal to bogan types or do they find an appeal through association to her?

I think the boganity of Pink lies in how she constantly sells out. She’s not just trying to sell femme bogues some songs and some idealism: she’s selling them everything from mobile phones to V8 Supercar racing.

She’s basically a modern day, less skanky version of Madonna – only rather than selling sex, she’s selling everything else but.

I’d still prefer any of my future children to look up to her as opposed to Lady f**king Gaga…

That’s not to say I want them looking up to pop stars. I’d much prefer them to idolise someone of substance if they are going to idolise any one other than myself :)

Yeah, this strain of the thread is misled. Lady Gaga is, indeed, a better role model than P!nk and as for “synthesized plastic bimbo who mimes her concert, or some reality tv winner”: they’re all artless, highly marketed product — you just can’t see it because you fall so squarely into P!nk’s demographic :) but not the others’.

The word ‘synthesised’ does not contain a z. American spelling is one the of know signs of a bogan.

26 02 2010

Yes. According to unconfirmed reports, she verbally and physically threatened arena staff if they booked her for a lesser number of shows.

It’s also a symbolic number, because that’s the average IQ of a P!nk fan.

you’d believe anything if you think Pink was talking to Laver staff herself

I’m not really a fan as such, but I can’t really say anything bad about Pink.

I was taken to one of her shows by my ex (not a bogan, just evil incarnate) and I have to admit she puts on a hell of a good show. With, like, real singin’ and that.

It probably bears pointing out that we carry no cross regarding her talent and performance skills. Indeed, we admire her authenticity in that regard, to some degree. However, her ability to appeal to the lowest common bogominator requires pointing out. Bogans like her, hence we must discuss. TBL

The popularity of “Funhouse” confirms that bogans are cloth-eared. I had the misfortune to hear this clipped-to-death piece of rubbish on a proper stereo system which plays cds. Bogans are so used to listening to their compressed, squashed downloads that in generations to come young people will wonder what the music REALLY sounded like.

She’s definitely one of the ‘clippiest’.

Look out, like disliking TV, they’ll brand you Elitist for prefering Vinyl, showing their ignorance of a direct reproduction of a soundwave (analogue) vs a sampled (ie. heavily reduced) reproduction of soundwave (digital). No straight waveforms existing in nature but all over compressed CDs? Yeah, that sounds perfectly normal.

26 02 2010

I love it when people who have absolutley no idea about mixing and mastering start talking about vinyls superior sound.

Vinyl doesn’t support stereo bass or low-mid phase shifting, has limited stereo expansion, has lower top end and doesn’t allow hard compression (I’m not talking about digital compression I’m talking about gain compression).

P!nk = Epic Bogan

Despite the fact she is from overseas (Canadian I believe) she has embraced the bogan psyche better than anyone else previously…

Her concerts are certainly action packed, and she is one fit little girl… I didn’t have the pleasure of seeing one of the 78.000 concerts here in Melbourne, but my wife did, and she said she was incredible…

The face of V8 supercars is a curious and interesting decision… Both from P!nk and V8Supercar corp. She’s a chick… She’s into a guy who rides dirtbikes, and she’s a chick…

Maybe their trying to use the flow of the bogan river o’ cash to head over to the V8Supercars… and maybe its to entice petrolheads (like myself) to drag their Mrs and Kids along to the races to share the glorious experience of ‘that sound’ that only a pack of V8 race cars can give…

I believe that P!nk should be worthy of worship by all those who strive to tear the lining from bogan’s wallets (or dole cheques)… She certainly has grabbed the throat of boganinity with both hands and continues to cash in…

Bravo Alecia (correct BOGAN style spellling)… Bravo…

Not only is p!nk the ultimate in canadian boganism, she can’t sing either. How do people with such small musical talent make it to the top of the charts? It has to be bogan power. If only we could bottle it we’d be able to forget carbon dioxide pollution…

There are 2 classes of bogan in this world.

1) Your run-of-the-mill bogan that only knows the chorus part of khe san ie “the last train out of sydney’s almost gone”.

2) Then you have your true-blue, uber bogan who actually knows the lyrics.

Extra credit if they actually know where in the world khe san is.

The laughable thing, as I’m sure I’ve pointed out before, is that Khe Sanh was a battle fought by Americans! The only Aussies directly involved were flying air-support.

“effectively demonstrating how tenuous their grasp of those words was”

should be “were” instead of “was”

Um, no. Grasp = singular. TBL

could be “is their grasp of words” ??

words (plural). Grasp is the verb.

3 03 2010
E

It is like this:

“…effectively demonstrating how tenuous their grasp of those words was”

“their grasp of those words were” (correct plural sentence); and
“their grasp of that word was” (correct singular sentence).

The word ‘grasp’ is the verb and does not actually affect the sentence as a plural or singular.

Look- you folks write very well- usually flawless! Just wanted to point it out, that was all.

I have watched with no amazement the bogan teenage girls I teach fall mindlessly under Pink’s spell.
And why not – with great lyrics like ‘I don’t play your rules (probably spelt rulz) , I make my own’ and ‘nah, nah, nah I’m gonna start a fight’ that the junior femme bogan can identify with it’s a surefire hit! These, by the way, are usually the dumbest girls in the class – and it appeals to them because, well, making your own rules is the way to go when you are incredibly braindead. Sort of like ‘what is 7 plus 5?’ – response – ‘fuck you I make my own rules!’ (read: stuffed if I know).
In addition, starting fights is something the dramatic teenage bogan loves (if I don’t understand it, I will break it).
Then you get the real thing the bogan girl can identify with – saying things like ‘I can fit your whole house in my swimming pool’ – while it dreams of the day they too will be like Pink…rich, famous…skanky.

Ah yes… “nana nana nana-na, nananana nana” is wedged into my brain because this is the disc that my sister had on repeat for SEVEN F_CKING HOURS while she got ready for her (2nd) wedding.

There was a story on ACA/TT not too long ago where a woman had been outboganising her neighbours by singing a particular Pink song towards them.
The song featured a line “Ah’m gonna start a fight” which the level seven bogan seemed to shriek a bit louder than the rest while walking up and down the street.
It seemed the journalist was confused to which bogans to side with, on one side was a street full of people in agreeance that the Pink singer was at fault and on the other side there was a Pink fan.

26 02 2010

That’s probably why an ACA/TT hasn’t been written yet. Where do you start, where do you end.

Just like ACA’s advertising for their “Chow Mein Meow” story that they aired last night purposefully alluded to the restaurant serving cat, which was actually not correct at all.

Much the same FauxFacts Unlimited headlines, they try to grab your attention with unbelievable headlines and follow it up with unbearable ‘journalism’.

I missed the cat story, do you know what it was about?

26 02 2010
AlyssaKT

a Chinese restaurant backing on to an alley that is popular with stray cats, mainly due to the scraps they leave out – strangely enough! Footage showed 6 cats eating food scraps.
There was also a government health report that stated they had sighted a cat in their food prep area (that is open to alley) during an inspection. Shame the cat was alive, that part got in the way of a juicy story.
Not at all sanitary, but not at all what their advertising alleged either…

Being an international relations scholar, that bit about bogans learning about world politics from Pink songs is very scary. All the more so, because it is most likely true.

Terrifying stuff.

26 02 2010

The scary part is when they “get a schooner or 6 into them down at the local” and decide that they’re educated at a worldly level to the point where they’ll engage in serious debate about global issues. You know at this point it’s time to go as some c*nt is about to get glassed!

Having just read the lyrics (I would make a comment on her music, but being a Dylan tragic, I have forfeited all rights to do so), I would say that her conceptual understanding of international and US politics is somewhat lacking. While her critique of the Bush-era executive governance may hit several popular notes, I would say she has a little work to do yet.

I am in complete agreement Jenni. Sure he lyrics might lack depth and articulation but she IS trying to appeal to larely illiterate consumers of popular music after all. ‘Stupid Girls’ is on the best pieces of popular culture feminist pontificatingand rebellion since Helen Redding’s ‘I am Woman’ .

“What happened to the dreams of a girl president
She’s dancing in the video next to 50 Cent
They travel in packs of two or three
With their itsy bitsy doggies and their teeny-weeny tees
Where, oh where, have the smart people gone?
Oh where, oh where could they be?
Maybe if I act like that, that guy will call me back
Porno Paparazzi girl, I don’t wanna be a stupid girl
Baby if I act like that, flipping my blond hair back
Push up my bra like that, I don’t wanna be a stupid girl”

We could have a real revolution on our hands of this kind of message gets through to the bogan mindset

We direct your attention back to her V8 Supercar ad. Lyrical pontification may feed her ego, but when it’s time to hook in some cash, she’ll clutch at a random V8 driver, run around adjusting her breasts, and attempt to lure the bogan to one of the least unstupiding events in the nation. The bogan does not acknowledge any hypocrisy in this. TBL

You will get no education from Bob Dylan’s lyrics, I am afraid. Confused, certainly, especially with gems like “I was so much older then, I’m younger than that now,” or “Buy me some rings and a gun that sings, a flute that toots and a bee that stings, a sky that cries and a bird that flies, a fish that walks and a dog that talks”.

And do not worry about the Toowoomba thing. I lived there for a long time, and pour scorn on bogans as much as anyone else. My partner even comes from mega-bogan heritage (Kingsthorpe), and yet in seven short years has overcome this to be a normally functioning member of society.

What I’ve found funny now is that Pink has become exactly what she was bagging in “Stupid Girls”. She may have some brain and hasn’t got exercise balls on her chest, but she’s become the bogan, sell-out, white trash that she was so against.

“P!nk (lol) undertakes stadium tours of Australia every seven minutes.”

Australian has always seem to embrace pop music the world rejects. If it weren’t for Molly and countdown the world would have not been stuck with ABBA and Madonna..and now P!nk (lol)

Both Abba and Madonna were widely rejected and laughed at but no stupid australians with a thirst for bad pop embraced them all. Never forget the classic footage of Madonna singing at Live Aid and drowned out in boooos.

We owe the world a big apology for consistently embracing bad pop.

Ash - Corporate Lawyer cum Lingerie Model

The beaches these days are filled with NABs.

Don’t get me started on what happened to Cronulla. When I was a kid in the late-90s and early part of this decade, it was actually a nice place to hang out – mostly a surfie crowd, with some families and people who were going to the beach for the right reasons – to hang out with mates, have a bit of a laugh and just relax. Sure it was overwhelmingly white, but there was very little racial tension. I learnt most of what I know from the white surfers.

Round the turn of the century, however, you get an influx of the roid monkeys who go to the beach just to look at chicks and get in fights (this is of all races, not just Anglo bogans). The fact that a good portion of said roid monkeys are racist led to the riots.

As some one who actually listens to rock/punk/alternative music and lives and socializes in what I guess is a “alternative music scene” it really grinds my gears when these bubblegum pop stars try to flog the badass rock image, at least the Paris Hilton types embrace their bubblegum pop image.

Always thought that song should’ve been satirised under the name “Get This Barbie Started” by that quintessential old-school VB-swilling bogue, Chris Franklin; who covered that ’90s Alanis Morrissette-esque song “Bitch” as “Bloke”.

Now I’ve gone and got a worse song stuck in your head, pb.

26 02 2010
Tone

I’ve given myself many minutes of mindless entertainment by singing ‘Get This Party Started’ to myself, only substituting some of the first letters with ‘F’. ‘Getting this farty farted on a Faturday fight’ never fails to amuse.

The only reason I know any of Pink’s work is because I’m married to someone that spent her formative years growing up in the same bogan colony I did, only she appears to have a few more vestiges of bogan heritage remaining than I.

26 02 2010

I stumbled on a Shirley Bassey cover of “Get This Party Started” while aimlessly browsing Youtube a while back. I have to say, it was comedy gold.

26 02 2010

the replacing the first letter idea reminded me of a similar suggestion i heard to make hoobastank’s ‘the reason’ almost bearable (or at least funny): every time the word reason is in the song, replace it with the word penguin. so you end up with ‘i found a penguin for me, to change who i used to be, a penguin to start over new, and the penguin is you’. much more entertaining.

26 02 2010
Going Bogue

The things that really shat me about that “Dear Mr. Preziden’” song was that by the time she released it slating GWB had become so passe.
That song came out, IIRC, in about 2006 close to the time that the Dems cleaned up in the mid-terms (or shortly thereafter) and left GWB a “lame duck” President. By the time her song came out most other Hollywood liberals had moved on from being anti-Bush to being pro-Obama or -Clinton. I guess this fits in with the whole “bogans are always late to the scene of the crime” thing.
Though the song gave the bogan an appearance of being learned and political, there was one moment when the bogan thought that “P!nque” was saying that “it’s ok to be gay” – then it realised that, actually, “P!nque” was talking about Dick Cheney’s lesbian daughter. Lesbians rule (apparently).

28 02 2010
Right and proud

Absolutely. One of the funniest songs in that song is when she accuses Bush of “not knowing what a hard days’ work feels like”. Let’s think about that one for a moment: P!nk is a pop-star, flying around the world doing shows in front of thousands of screaming fans. The worst mistake she can make is bringing out a record that bombs in the charts. W was the President, trying to manage America and its’ interests for 8 years straight, despite protestors and extremists who wanted him dead. The worst mistake he could make would be a decision that cost countless lives…

Yeah, P!nk really knows what a days’ hard work feels like!

Another great post.

As a UK person I read all posts as though they are written about our chavs (or neds in Scotland). They pretty much all fit – all you’ve got to do is change some of the brand names or ‘local’ celebrities.

PS. There is some debate over the origins of the term ‘chav’. I am with those that believe it is an anacronym for Council House And Violent.

26 02 2010

I find the bogan and chav similarities are like the Galapagos and Madagascar giant tortoises. They’re oceans apart but seem so alike.
Not having had any personal experience with chavs, I tend to like them more, mainly because they have funnier sounding slang like ‘murkle’.

Stupid pink. That song Mr president was the most annoying thing I have ever heard. Do your research before you start slandering something. I am definetely not pro bush but that song nearly swayed me (luckily it didn’t).

26 02 2010

But she needs denigrating. Her fake rebel, look at me I’m cool because I have tattoos and pretend not to care shtick is almost as horrible as her bland safe music masquerading as edgy. Her real genius is she also appeals to the male bogue in a Robbie Williams kind of way.

26 02 2010
mistress

I don’t think anyone ever said she was edgy. I don’t think she even claims to be edgy. Her music sux and she’s a sell out. But she IS a pop star and its all about the performance of a particular archetype. In this case rebel rocker (even is she does it badly ). I’d prefer fake ‘rebel rocker’ to real bimbo slut. Although after having watched the ad for V8 supercars, I have to rethink whether given the right economical incentive, she might very well do the bimbo slut act quite well too….

26 02 2010

Mistress, why do we have to choose between a fake rebel rocker and a bimbo slut? Do you prefer cocaine or heroin. The point is she sucks and should be ignored not seen as the better of two evils. Bad is bad and there is plenty of good stuff out there.

There’s nothing to admire about this hack. Her apparent “performance skills” are just another ploy. Tomorrow she may just as well be told to sing like Britney Spears, and she’ll do it. Clearly she has no talent, or she wouldn’t be writing, recording and then releasing a song about subjects she admits she knows little about, but only did so because her record label knew the topical opinions of celebrities sell just as much as sex.

I thought all of the lesibans would have scared the bogan women away! So I am a little surprised she has been embraced the way she has been. Having said all that…the woman can really sing!

While their “Music Fix” page is Prima Facie evidence of ‘bogan madness’, their “Celebrity Fix” page remains the definitive anthropological study. I submit the following reader comments:

CF’s shocking scoop that “Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis stink” had Colleen of Queensland rather riled:

“you should get a life and stop all this lies and not cause all this stuff for those who make it possible for us to go and see the movies be a responsable whatever it is you are people or groups like you give all the same a bad name. get a life please”

And, while lover-not-hater of Wagga agrees with Joan Rivers, who recently declared Victoria “Posh” Beckham, “rude, short and too vulgar to be a celebrity”:

“well i always thought that posh would be like that. i am not shocked she is a B****. it funny that joan rivers thinks so…”

The limit to the amount of altruism a bit egalitarian guilt can induce eventually became manifestly clear in the summation:

“but i am not here to judge… just giggle”.

I rest my case.

This blog should be changed to “things tradies like” because in the reality of it all most of these entries are tradie behavioural traits and that of their equally ignorant female partners.

Has anyone noticed the rise of CUB coincides with the celebration of all things tradie? They are a desired species for women these days and are a dream for both the government and marketing agencies. Most ad campaigns these days pamper to the tradie through this blokey stereotype and through really stupid humour that tradies seem to like. I have sat in production meetings and most of the clever thought out ideas are always dismissed as too hard for the target demographic – which is the tradesman with a lot of money.

A tradie in australia has more respect than an intellect or scientist or a forward thinker these days and hence why most of these ignorant walk around with an obnoxious attitude and expecting or demanding respect or else they’ll glass you.

I don’t entirely agree with this article, obviously she is loved and idolised by bogans throughout Australia in regards to her devoted interests in cars (Veey ‘ates moite) and motorbikes. But when it comes to misspelling her stage name and her album I think she was just being artistic by releasing out a statement and giving it more emphasis. A lot of music artists faff around with the English language with their band names and titles of their albums even smart well read artists such as Frank Zappa (Shut and up and play yer guitar comes to mind) who is one of the brainiest rock stars of all time.

Not a fan of Pink’s music but I do give Pink credit for a few things:

1. She puts most of the barbie doll pop singers throughout the music industry today when it comes to talent and brains.
2. She isn’t a fad follower like most of the other today’s female popstars.
3. She slams bimbo role models like Paris Hilton, Heidi Montag, Jessica Simpson, etc who are having bad influence on female adolescent teens by influencing them to have silicone tits, fake tans, other sorts of plastic surgery and being slutty in her song “Stupid Girl”.
4. Her heart is in the right place when it comes to animals she refused to play at Prince Harry’s birthday because of his devotion to fox hunting.
5. She doesn’t influence female teenage adolescents to do twisted antics like that severely mentally twisted popstar Ladette Gaga is doing right now by wearing clothes and make up hookers wear and getting eye contact lenses to get them to look like a japanese cartoon character.

Also George W Bush who has a brain of a monkey and the worst President the USA has ever had actually deserves to ridiculed by Pink.

In my final conclusion I am actually surprised that she is loved by bogans because I thought they would be more apperist and not tolerate her unconventional look but that I mean not looking like a barbie doll pop singer like Sophie Monk and mostly would slam her for being “too dikey”.

I think she is great and shouldn’t be on this list. She has ethics and spunk and is down to earth. Good on her for speaking out against Bush and mulesing. She is a strong woman who has talent and doesn’t use sex to sell her songs. With so many talentless bimbos making music I don’t know how people can knock her.
