|P!nk in her new video (Credit: Sony)|
Pop rock singer P!nk turns on her classic French cinema charm for her new music video, Blow Me (One Last Kiss), from her new CD, The Truth About Love. The video opens with Pink and her potential paramour sitting in an idyllic meadow, where she is (presumably) about to submit to his wily charms (and killer bone structure) until he makes the fatal error of taking a phone call. Disillusioned, P!nk wanders off, only to come across an equally handsome motorcyclist/artist — the kind that only exists in France — who gives her a lift and then sketches her in a seriously sexy scene. Later, at a lavish party, P!nk channels Marlene Dietrich, toying with gender roles and leading a female partygoer in a seductive dance. This is, of course, interrupted by a marriage proposal, though it's not for P!nk. Once again, she's reduced to second best (which, come to think of it, is a fairly common theme in a lot of her videos. Pink is nothing if not humble). Scorned, she shows up at the couples' wedding - dressed in all black, naturally - and gives the groom her best heartbroken stare. Then, just as vows are about to be exchanged, a giant pink heart erupts above them, showering them in viscous red fluid. In a scene reminiscent of "Carrie," Pink stands in the middle of all the ensuing chaos, laughing while the bride and groom run for cover. Then, at the clip's end, she takes a ride in a flying machine, finally cracking that smile we've been hearing so much about.
