Pink sends a strong message to her critics, the Supreme Court and abortion opponents in her new protest anthem "Irrelevant," which dropped on Thursday.
The Grammy winner revealed earlier in the week on Tuesday that her new track was born out of anger after social media users and some public figures condemned her for criticizing the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, which made abortion a constitutionally protected right in 1973. Some mocked the singer while others slammed her for saying that supporters of the Supreme Court decision should "never f***ing listen to my music again."
In the new song, Pink takes those critics to task.
"You can call me irrelevant, insignificant/ You can try to make me small/ I'll be your heretic/ you f***in' hypocrite/ I won't think of you at all," she sings. "Sticks and stones and all that s***/ Does Jesus love the ignorant?/ I like to think he'd gladly take us all."
"The kids are not alright/ None of us are right, I'm tired/ but I won't sleep tonight/ 'Cause I still feel alive," she continues in the chorus.
She dedicates the bridge to protestors, repeating over and over, "Girls just wanna have rights/ So, why do we have to fight?"
The singer first teased her new song on Monday in a video she shared on social media. She also posted a photo of lyrics from her new song that were written on a napkin.
"Woke up. Got heated. Wrote song," she captioned the latter post.
The "Just Like Fire" singer has been outspoken on the issue of abortion before. In June, following the Supreme Court decision, she shared a Planned Parenthood video with the caption, "The Supreme Court has stolen our basic right to control our bodies and futures. But together, we are a force of nature."
"Irrelevant" is available to stream and download now.
