Pink and Channing Tatum Dabble in Crossdressing and BDSM in New ‘Beautiful Trauma’ Music Video

2017 has been a killer year for Pink. With the release of her new album Beautiful Trauma, the 38-year-old superstar has been everywhere performing and promoting her new music that includes the hit lead single “What About Us.” Pink has outdone herself yet again with the release of the Beautiful Trauma music video that left us gagging.

In a new video for the album’s title track, Pink plays opposite Channing Tatum as a colorful 1950s married couple. The couple begins the video in a picture-perfect scenario, Pink vacuums while Tatum sips a cup of coffee. Then, as the music video progresses, things get a little less constricted.

Later, the couple crossdresses. Tatum puts on a dress and some lipstick and Pink switches to a suit. Soon after, she ties him up and breaks out a whip, exploring BDSM with a third partner who joins them.

“Life is f*cking traumatic,” she recently tweeted about the song. “But it’s also incredibly beautiful.”

This song in particular is important to Pink as it speaks to the hard work that goes into a years-long relationship. Pink has been married to her husband Carey Hart for 11 years.

“There are moments where I look at [Hart] and he is the most thoughtful, logical, constant… he’s like a rock,” Alecia Moore (Pink) told The Guardian of her evolving relationship with Hart. “And then I’ll look at him and go: I’ve never liked you. There’s nothing I like about you. We have nothing in common. I don’t like any of the shit you like. I don’t ever wanna see you again.”

“Then two weeks later I’m like, ‘Things are going so good, you guys.’ Then you’ll go through times when you haven’t had sex in a year. Is this bed death? Is this the end of it? Do I want him?…Monogamy is work! But you do the work and it’s good again.”
