AceShowbiz - Pink is donating proceeds from her powerful new protest anthem "Irrelevant" to Michelle Obama's When We All Vote organization. Seen sticking her middle finger up in defiance on the fiery new single's bold cover art, the "Who Knew" hitmaker uses the track to call on everyone to not let their voices be silenced.
"As a woman with an opinion and the fearlessness to voice that opinion, it gets very tiring when the only retort is to tell me how irrelevant I am," she said of the track, which is a "heated" reaction to the current political climate in the U.S. "I am relevant because I exist, and because I am a human being. No one is irrelevant. And no one can take away my voice."
When We All Vote is an "advocacy group, whose mission is to change the culture around the voting process." A press release adds that it "seeks to increase participation in each election cycle by helping to close race and age gaps. To date, more than 100 million people have been educated about the voting process, resulting in increased voter registration."
On "Irrelevant", Pink belts, "Girls just wanna have rights/ So why do we have to fight?/ Girls just wanna have rights/ So why do we have to fight?" Her powerful track is seemingly a response to the landmark Roe v Wade ruling that was reversed, making it illegal for millions of women across America to have an abortion.
In light of the shocking overturning, the 42-year-old pop star previously encouraged her millions of followers to join Planned Parenthood's #BansOfOurBodies movement. She wrote on Instagram, "Court has stolen our basic right to control our bodies and futures. But together, we are a force of nature. Join us at BansOff.org."
In June, Cyndi Lauper shared a new version of her abortion rights song "Sally's Pigeons". The 69-year-old singer first recorded the track, which tells the story of a teenager dying as a result of undergoing a backstreet abortion, back in 1993.
About the move, she said, "The Supreme Court's radical decision makes the re-recording and re-release of 'Sally's Pigeons' more relevant than ever. In my childhood, women didn't have reproductive freedom and 50 years later we find ourselves in a time warp where one's freedom to control their own body has been stripped away."
The "Girls Just Want To Have Fun" hitmaker, who was spotted attending a Planned Parenthood Bans Off Our Bodies march in New York City back in May, added that "freedom for women" now comes at a price following the ruling.
