Pink and Channing Tatum Explore Love and Other Drugs (and S&M!) in 'Beautiful Trauma' Music Video
The colorful clip breathes new life into the single’s love-is-a-drug lyrics. In the video, Pink plays a retro housewife who dutifully irons shirts, cooks breakfast and does laundry for her husband, portrayed by none other than Channing Tatum. Then, after Pink fulfills her household duties, the storyline devolves into a booze- and pill-filled dance party —complete with his-and-hers drag — which culminates in a ménage à trois with a latex-clad, riding crop-wielding dominatrix named Rhonda.
“Beautiful Trauma” is the second single off Pink’s seventh studio album of the same name and a follow-up to her Top 20 hit “What About Us.” The Grammy winner delivered a gravity-defying performance of the song at the American Music Awards Sunday, where she sang the Jack Antonoff-produced number off the side of an L.A. hotel.
Last month, the singer, 38, revealed her 11-year marriage to Carey Hart partly inspired her new album.
“There are moments where I look at [Hart] and he is the most thoughtful, logical, constant … he’s like a rock. He’s a good man. He’s a good dad. He’s just the kind of dad I thought he’d be and then some,” Pink told The Guardian about her motocross racer husband, 42, with whom she shares daughter Willow, 6, and 10-month-old son Jameson. “And then I’ll look at him and go: ‘I’ve never liked you. There’s nothing I like about you. We have nothing in common. I don’t like any of the s— you like. I don’t ever wanna see you again.”
