We Heart: P!nk’s New Protest Anthem, ‘Irrelevant’
On July 18, the music video for P!nk’s new song, “Irrelevant,” dropped and has since been deemed a ‘protest anthem.’ She explained, “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.

The proceeds from the new track will be donated to Michelle Obama’s national, nonpartisan voting initiative When We All Vote.
