Pink Relishes 'Stupid Girls' Criticism

LATEST: Outspoken pop star PINK is thrilled her socialite parody music video STUPID GIRLS has attracted such a barrage of criticism, because she intended it to be seen as a challenge.

The 26-year-old singer has been blasted for the track's promo video and lyrics, which poke fun at Hollywood stars including LINDSAY LOHAN and JESSICA SIMPSON.

But she is relishing the reaction, while disagreeing that the song makes her a hypocrite.

She tells MTV.com, "I love the discussion that's going on right now. There's always a backlash when you challenge people's convictions and their heroes.

"But I don't do all this so I can be in Us Weekly every week. I don't do this so that people think I'm cool.

"I never said I was perfect, and I never said anybody else doesn't have permission to make fun of me for what I do. I'm a walking contradiction. I'm a hypocrite sometimes. I'm a work in progress.

"But I'm working to be better. I'm seeking out smart people and responsible women, and I'm standing up for animals. I'm not making fun of a certain person, I'm making fun of an idea, and I think they're missing the point. Sexy doesn't have to come with the price tag of being dumb."
