How Relevant (To Her Audience) Are The Statements That Pink Makes About The Values And Attitudes In Society? How Does She Communicate These Statements?

1154 words - 5 pages

Living in society, many situations arise, particularly for Pink's audience of young girls, where moral instruction is required to mould them into self-sufficient young women.Pink employs a didactic approach in her music and in doing so, uses her role model status for the purpose of communicating positive values and attitudes to her audience of impressionable young women.In the text 'Most Girls', "relationships" are paralleled to the financial status of men, magnifying consumerist values and attitudes in society. In the text 'U and Ur hand', values and attitudes relating to the objectification of women by men, are addressed. In both these texts, Pink uses a didactic approach to promote morals, values and high self worth to women. Both texts also convey the attitude that the name of love should not be used on a superficial level.In the song 'Most Girls' Pink makes the statement that society is overly consumerist and parallels this attitude in society with male and female relationships. A consumerist society places emphasis on material goods and implies that the more we can consume, the higher our status.Throughout the song "Most girls", Pink expresses her view that society is overly consumerist by using various techniques such as onomatopoeia. This is used in the line "Most girls want a man with the bling bling".By using the technique of onomatopoeia, Pink has created the auditory imagery of money. The example 'bling bling' appeals to our ears and infers consumerism.Another technique that is employed in Pink's song 'Most Girls' is the use of colloquial language. Through using the phrase "mean green" which means money, Pink is identifying with her target audience of young people, as colloquial language is more appealing to young people as opposed to formal language.The phrase "mean green" also infers negative connotations to money through Pink's use of the word 'mean'.With the emphasis of consumerism and materialistic values in society, Pink has used lyrical techniques to communicate the overly consumeristic attitudes of society (her audience) in the song 'Most Girls'.In the song 'U and Ur Hand' Pink makes the statement that we live in a society where men are objectifying women.Throughout the song 'U and Ur Hand', colloquial language and visual imagery are used to convey the attitude that men are objectifying women.This is outlined in the stanza, which states, "In the corner with your boys you bet 'em five bucks to get tha girl that jus walked in". Through using colloquial language, Pink had identified with her audience of young people and conveyed the message of the objectification of women by using language familiar to her audience.Through the use of visual imagery, Pink has put her audience in a position where they can visualize the scenario. Pink's statement of the Objectification of women is strongly communicated to her audience as an attitude in society in the song "U and Ur Hand" through the techniques of using visual imagery and colloquial...
