The Winner of Best New Music Video in This Category is... Pink

Kudos have to be given to Alecia Moore, the lady otherwise known as Pink. Her new video "Stupid Girls" is exactly what art is for: taking the political, which is also often personal, and turning it on its head so that we can all see the truths that would otherwise be difficult to describe to some people, all while having a little fun. Her video is a nod to women of every stripe, and her statement on the controversy surrounding Stupid Girls is simply terrific. On this note, I direct you to Pink's official web site. At this site you will find her "Latest Letter." Click on it, and be inspired. While you're at it, watch her video, too.

Runner's up in this category over the last few years are:

1. "Teary Eyed" - Missy Elliott

2. "Because of You" - Kelly Clarkson

3. "Confessions of a Broken Heart" - Lindsay Lohan (yes, even she does some things right)

4. "Daughters" - John Mayer (Hey, look! I've got a guy up here.... )

5. "Fighter" - Christina Aguilera

6. "Beautiful" - Christina Aguilera (If you aren't reading her lyrics, then you're missing her point.)

7. "Me, Myself, and I" - Beyonce

8. "Independent Women, Part I" - Destiny's Child

9. "What It Feels Like For a Girl" - Madonna (Would this list really be complete without at least one of her videos?)

Any more you like? Hey, guys, this includes you, too. If so, send 'em to me, and I'll post the best ones in a future editoral.
