Pink: "You Don't Have to Dumb Yourself Down to Be Cute"

In 2006, the boundary-pushing pop artist Pink released the single "Stupid Girls." The song gained most of its notoriety due to its music video, in which Pink poked fun at mega-celebrities Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Jessica Simpson and others for playing dumb to seem more sexy—a false choice, in Pink's estimation.

"My point is not that sexy is a bad thing," Pink explained on The Oprah Winfrey Show later that same year. "My point is that sexy and smart are not oil and water, and that you don't have to dumb yourself down to be cute."

Here Pink tells Oprah why she thinks intelligent women might be hiding that side of themselves. Plus, find out whether the outspoken singer ever received any feedback from the targets of her satire.
