2018, chapter 34: ‘Wild Hearts Can’t Be Broken’ by P!nk (nr. 146)

A man is trying to convince his lover to commit to a serious relationship. They have disagreed on this for years, and now he sees that it’ll never get better. He tells her, that she either agrees to them to officially becoming a proper couple, or it’s over between them.

He sees this as a personal conflict between the two of them. She, who goes by the name Chainsmoker,  instead hears critique of the movement she started, her ideals and beliefs. And she understands that she can’t get him or anyone to listen to them unless she uses force. She will have to fight, and maybe die, for this. And luckily she has an army.

And so she goes to rally the troops, with Little Mix’ support. She speaks to the hurt they feel, after society has beat and betrayed them, and promises them their share of this new world, she will create.  She and her army cannot be tied down, not by him or anyone, and she cannot be shut up. This world is sick and broken and she will free it by showing it the truth. No matter how hard it is, they have to try, and they will win.

Because her and Little Mix’ hearts are the heart of their movement, and that heart is wild. And wild hearts can’t be broken.

2018, chapter 25: ‘True Love’ by P!nk (feat. Lily Allen) (nr. 137)

Taylor is trying to convince the man she loves and has been with for years to treat her better. She believes herself too good for his neglect of her.

What Will hears is that she believes herself too good for him, and what was an honest attempt at communication, he sees as the beginning of another fight. Taylor almost gets pulled in, and gets angry, but pulls herself back enough to continue her attempt for honest communication – just in an angry tone of voice. Through gritted teeth and insults, she tells him that despite how mean he can be, she truly loves him. She’s the only man she has ever truly loved. She hates him so much, it must be real love because no one else can break her heart like he can. She wants to hug him and wrap her hands around his neck at the same time.

All she’s asking is that he thinks about her feelings and is a bit more romantic.

2018, chapter 19: ‘ U + Ur Hand’ by P!nk (nr. 131)

It has been a few years since Chainsmoker and Little Mix turned their backs on following society’s rules.

One late night, they’re dressed up and going to a bar. They know the barman, so he knows not to keep them waiting outside. They start the evening off with six shots.

That’s when a dickhead puts his hand on Little Mix and starts hitting on her. She tells him to go away because he doesn’t really want to mess with her tonight. She’s not here for his entertainment and was perfectly fine until he walked into her life. He can keep his drink, and just give her the money instead.  He does.

Later, around midnight, Little Mix is very drunk and dancing by herself. The guy comes back. She tells him that he’s out of luck and orders him to back off.

He tries to convince her by telling her, that his friends bet him five bucks to get her as soon as she entered. He’d like to win. She tells him that he can tell them whatever he wants, as long as he quits spilling his drink on her.

Judging by the way he’s high-fiving his friends, he let them think it was a success, even though he’s probably going home alone.

2018, chapter 13: ‘Please Don’t Leave Me’ by P!nk (nr. 125)

Will and Taylor have a complicated history. They have just gotten back together, and they’re back to fighting.

Will, who has kicked Taylor out countless times, is yelling insults louder and meaner than ever, still hurting from the time that she seemed to have moved on and was dating someone else.

Taylor has realised herself that she has never taken this drastic measures as taking his free will before. Even now she is angry at him for tricking her and is being downright nasty towards him.

Their relationship has become a contest. The one that wins will be the one that hits the hardest. Each insists they don’t need the other. And since both of these people are rather powerful, that competition could get scary, if taken too far.

In the end, though, they apologise, say that they really do need the other, because they’re the perfect punching bag. So each makes sure to tell the other how beautiful they are and beg them not to leave.

110: ‘Slut Like You’ by P!nk

Fergie has two separate lives.

In one, she’s a pretty pop star. This is how she makes a living. Her image here is a facade.

In another, she goes partying. This is her break. Here she can be crazy and completely herself.

She has managed to keep these lives separate since her partying would hurt her pop star image. Until one night.

She is at this point very drunk. She meets a guy, who recognises her as a pop star. He, however, seems to be looking for the same thing she is; a one-night-stand. She is so relieved she tells him the whole truth.

She goes out, now primarily with other girls also looking for men to take home. They don’t really care all that much about them. But she doesn’t go home with just anyone. And she makes it clear to the guy (what was his name again? Jack? Sam?) that she’s the one in control. She’s not the fool being convinced by him, he is. She’s even the one buying him shots.

He doesn’t seem convinced though and starts to leave. She tries to convince him to stay by calling him a caveman.

86: ‘Nobody Knows’ by P!nk

Fergie hasn’t had an easy life. But she’s okay now. She has found a way to be herself. And she has found love. Unfortunately, the woman she loves doesn’t love her back. But she’s happy to escalate their relationship to get a break from a boring marriage.

Fergie knows that this situation is bad. It’s another wrong choice in a string of wrong choices. And nobody knows how much it hurts. And like hell, she’s going to tell people.

So she gets up every day, living life, technically having what she wants and not letting anyone know how alone she feels. Or how familiar this feels…

86: ‘Don’t Let Me Get Me’ by P!nk

Fergie  enjoyed going to bars way before Will seduced her into his way of partying because it was a break from her mess of a life. Never the best at anything, a teacher’s pet only in the way that she dated them, and her parents wasted no time telling her how she was wasting hers by doing everything wrong.

She let it get to her. She couldn’t stand herself and wasted even more time insulting herself in the mirror.

She did enjoy singing, so she decided to find happiness in that. But She was soon told to change everything about herself to become a pop star. So she did, but it wasn’t enough. She was just compared to other, better pop stars – and that based on being all pretty, which she didn’t want to be.

So there she was, hating her dream job. She needed a break, so she started going out to bars on her own. Here she might not be herself, but she could pretend to be more successful and have complete control of the situation.

But then Will came along. Going out with him was different. She was completely out of control, but very much herself – and loving it.

85: ‘Perfect’ by P!nk

Sara has not had an easy life. Her parents didn’t like her much and that lead her to making bad decisions. Now she’s better and actively inspires young women to be confident.

One of these students needs a little more attention. Even as they others start listening to Sara’s lessons, she still talks herself down. Sara takes her aside for a private talk to tell her that she is perfect and shouldn’t be so mean to herself.

The girl smiles and goes home, leaving Sara alone to reflect. As confident as she has become, she still blames herself for hurting her siblings, and the reactions she got, and still gets, for the way she expresses herself, does leave an imprint. She supposes that she too sometimes could use having someone tell her, she was perfect.

74: ‘God is a DJ’ by P!nk

A woman is crawling out of bed. She has just kicked out her lover, telling him to go home to his wife. She looks at herself in the mirror and reflects on who she has become. So ready to believe empty promises and give up everything.

She has to turn a new leaf. Or rather an old leave. She decides to become, who she once was; an outcast, who treated life as a party, spoke her mind, was at ease with her lot in life and didn’t care what people thought.

53: ‘Last To Know’ by P!nk

Nicki has a fashion show for her sneakers brand, Giuseppe Zanotti. Gaga doesn’t show up, which angers Nicki. She could have called her up and said good luck, but instead Nicki had to be told from someone else at the last moment, she wouldn’t show at all. By then she had already called Gaga and received no response.

They went out on a date together. They ate sushi. Nicki made gaga laugh many times. Gaga called her a cutie.

Nicki’s anger rises the more she thinks about it.

She left tickets at the door for Gaga. She had to tell her mother, there was no more room for her, so there would be room for Gaga.

At the date, Gaga had directly said, she would go to the show.

After the date, Nicki didn’t want to go home with Gaga. She wouldn’t sleep with her.

Nicki figures that if she had been a hoe and slept with Gaga, Gaga would have shown up. But that’s not how Nicki rolls. Not after an actual date.

Now that Gaga has clearly shown that she does not know Nicki at all and that she thought she could just have her without caring about her and her work even the least, they will no longer even be  as much friends as they had been.

Gaga of course still wants to be ‘friends’, but Nicki yells at her and refuses, the next time she calls.

EDIT: Yeah, I forgot the links and my ending spiel this week in my excitement. I have taken the liberty to fix it how I would have fixed it, had I noticed it sooner.
