VIDEO: Katy Perry's "Fireworks" vs. Pink's "Raise Your Glass"

While these songs and videos may not seem connected, they do have a common thread. Both feature hot guys kissing. Why is that relevant? Because of the message that each song has in the chorus. Perry is telling her fans to not be afraid to be who they are and to be optimistic about their future, and Pink is telling her fans to be proud of who they are and celebrate it. I prefer Perry's song, but I like that both have characters that represent the gay community. Considering how far we've come in overcoming homophobia, there should be more videos like this.

Pink's "Raise Your Glass" [0:27]
So raise your glass if you are wrong,
In all the right ways,
All my underdogs,
We will never be never be anything but loud
And nitty gritty dirty little freaks
Won't you come on and come on and raise your glass,
Just come on and come on and raise your glass

Katy Perry's "Fireworks" [2:17]
Cause baby you're a firework
Come on show 'em what your worth
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!"
As you shoot across the sky-y-y
Baby you're a firework
Come on let your colors burst
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!"
You're gunna leave 'em fallin' down-own-own


  1. FIREWORK!!!!!!!!!!

  2. According to Yahoo! Answers and an MTV interview, there were no actors in the video. They cast were locals in Budapest and the two men who kissed were a real life gay couple:
