Pink teams with fun. frontman Nate Ruess on “Just Give Me A Reason.”
We’re all Pink Stans here, right? So you’re already well aware that Pink is no stranger to high-profile collaborations (see: her fierce “Here Comes The Weekend” duet with Eminem and “Guns And Roses” with T.I.). Well now, Pink’s back at it again, only this time she’s enlisted the help of fun. frontman Nate Ruess on the vulnerable power ballad, “Just Give Me A Reason.”
Watch Pink featuring Nate Ruess’ “Just Give Me A Reason” video after the jump.
While she’s not covered in body paint or angry hate dancing with a hot bro like she did in her “Try” video, Pink is writhing around on a mattress (with her IRL hubby Carey Hart!) in the middle of a hazy, starlit body of water, which (in our humble opinion) is just as good — maybe even better! And when she’s not writhing, she’s having a vaguely AGGRO sing-off with Nate, who looks quite dapper in a suit while singing into an old-school mic. We should also mention there’s a scary teddy bear with glowing eyes strategically positioned on Pink’s bed/raft.
Although we have no clue why it’s there, we have a feeling it’s the same reason that Taylor Swift forced her band to dress up as giant stuffed animals in her “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” video: to
totally humiliate Jake Gyllenhaal seek revenge on someone via a private joke! That, or maybe it was just a subtle shout-out to Pink’s adorable baby Willow Sage. We just hope Willow Sage doesn’t have those glowing eyes. Because then it might be time to find a doctor.
