Hurts 2B Human, Do You Say It Because You’re 40 P!nk?
Normally people say that there is an existential crisis at 40, others say it is at 30 or 50 or 60 ... anyway. I think that at different moments of our lives we all go through crises that sometimes leave us frozen, make us feel melancholic and almost always cause us to repent for what was done wrong and for what was not done. It is common that we call ourselves cowards and that we reproach ourselves for everything that we believe was wrong in the past. However, everything that has happened in our life, the good, the bad and the trivial, is part of our growth as a person and is, precisely, what we are, for better or for worse. Interestingly, part of these crises is also the feeling that all past time was better, paradoxical do not you think? Listening to P!nk's album, Hurts 2B Human, I find many elements of which I have mentioned. The singer is in her forties and maybe because of it and, because she knows very well what many of her followers; who share age with her surely, are thinking, living and feeling right now. If we add to that the difficulties of the new reality that we are living (suffering?) in the world, several songs on the album make sense for many who have heard it, but not so much for those who criticize their music. And it's not that people of other ages can not hear it and feel identified with the lyrics; on the contrary, and as I mentioned at the beginning, we all go through moments in our lives in which, in one way or another, we seriously question what we have been doing in our lives so far. But, to be honest, if you've never liked P!nk´s style in the last few years, you'd better stay away from its new release, it is exactly the same as in previous occasions. Now, if you are her number 1 fan, embrace this record and listen to it as many times as you want because you will love it, since it is the same musical medicine that P!nk has been giving you for a long time. In Hurts 2B Human we can listen to an artist who wants to return to the past, who breaks before reality and who, despite everything, wants to hold on to someone to keep walking, wants to dance, wants to be happy and at the same time, knows that everything could be a simulation.
