Pop star Pink has hit back at the furore caused by the video for her song STUPID GIRLS - insisting she is not 'anti-sexy', just 'anti-stupid'.
The feisty hitmaker has been blasted for the track's promo video and lyrics, which poke fun at Hollywood stars including Jessica Simpson and Paris Hilton.
But Pink just wants to illustrate to young, impressionable girls they can be both intelligent and feminine at the same time.
She says, "There is absolutely nothing wrong with being sexy, feeling sexy or dressing sexy. My point is only this: smart and sexy are not oil and water.
"You don't need to dumb yourself down to be 'cute'. There's nothing wrong with having your hair cut, wearing lipstick and going to the gym.
"Smart people do it too - they just don't do it in pursuit of happiness or bore us with every detail."
