P!nk’s Beautiful Trauma
Pink and Channing Tatum Dance on Air
Surprise, surprise! The music video for Pink’s “Beautiful Truma” has dropped with Magic Mike star Channing Tatum dancing alongside the pink-haired pop star. The single, a catchy tune with an infectious melody, is the second from Pink’s seventh album, Beautiful Trauma.
The video, directed by Nick Florez and RJ Durell, opens with a husband and wife sleeping separately in twin beds in a classic 50s trope of family life on TV, á la I Love Lucy. As the story unfolds, Pink and Channing dance together like Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire in the house’s various and colorful rooms. Of course, all is not perfect in this idealized 50s version of life, and eventually the happy couple gets subverted into something more modern and dangerous, with drinking, drug use, gender-fluidity, and BDSM sex.
It’s a fun and thought-provoking video with Pink and Channing making a charismatic and charming duo. In keeping with the theme, the closing credits are similar to popular TV shows from the era.
