"So What" is a song by Pink which was co-written by and produced by Max Martin, who was behind the artist's prior hits "Who Knew" and "U And Ur Hand."

The video was directed by Dave Meyers, who previously worked with Pink on clips for "U + Ur Hand" and "Stupid Girls." The latter won the 2006 MTV Video Music Award for Best Pop Video.

In this song Pink makes several references to her relationship with her estranged husband, the motocross racer Carey Hart. They separated after his rumored infidelity. Pink is rarely subtle in these matters, and lays it out in the first lines of the song: "I guess I just lost my husband, I don't know where he went, so I'm gonna drink my money, I'm not gonna pay his rent." Instead of wallowing in the sorrow of the breakup, she's choosing to enjoy the spoils of her fame, as being a Rock Star without attachment has its advantages. Pink points out, however, that the song is not entirely biographical.

In the song's music video, Pink is shown riding down a Los Angeles street on a lawnmower. She wrote on her MySpace blog: "This video was too much fun. If you ever get a chance to drive a lawnmower down Sunset Blvd. – I highly suggest it."

This was Pink's first solo #1 on the Billboard Hot 100. The only previously time she had topped the chart was via the 2001 remake of Labelle's "Lady Marmalade" with Christina Aguilera, Mya and Lil' Kim. The song got a bump when Pink performed it on the MTV Video Music awards, where she used a soundstage as part of a memorable performance where she slid down a rope and blew up a building. Pink stayed in the news when she expressed her political views regarding US vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, stating: "The woman terrifies me."

In the UK this leapt from #38 to #1 in the singles chart, the second biggest jump to the top in chart history. The record is held by DJ Otzi's version of "Hey Baby," which with one leap went from #45 to #1 in 2001.

Carey Hart appeared in the song's music video. Pink commented: "At first I was kind of irked because everyone was like, 'Well, wait. I thought the split was amicable and now she's talking s--t about him?! What the f---?' It's hypocritical.' But once everyone saw the video and saw that Carey was in it, it shut everybody up, which was lovely." She added: "Carey hadn't heard the song before he did the video. That's how much he trusts and loves me. He pretty much just rolls his eyes, throws his hands up in the air, and hugs me. He gets it. He gets me. It's nice."

Pink told the story of this song: "So What was a joke. I heard this beat from Max Martin. It's such a fun beat, so fun. And I was actually kidding when I said "I guess I just lost my husband, I don't know where he went." Ha ha, that's really funny. Let's keep it and it just kind of went from there. And it just got more and more wrong. The more lines we wrote, the wronger it was. And we kept it because I don't really care. I don't think about the consequences when I write songs and now I am regretting every second of it. No, I'm not."

This won the prize for the Most Addictive Track at the 2008 MTV Europe Music Awards.

This was named Best Video at the 2009 MTV Australia Awards.

LyricsEdit

Na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na
I guess I just lost my husband
I don't know where he went
So I'm gonna drink my money
I'm not gonna pay his rent (nope)
I got a brand new attitude
And I'm gonna wear it tonight
I wanna get in trouble
I wanna start a fight
Na na na na na na na
I wanna start a fight
Na na na na na na na
I wanna start a fight
So so what?
I'm still a rock star
I got my rock moves
And I don't need you
And guess what
I'm having more fun
And now that we're done
I'm gonna show you tonight
I'm alright, I'm just fine
And you're a tool
So so what?
I am a rockstar
I got my rock moves
And I don't want you tonight
Uh, check my flow, uohh
The waiter just took my table
And gave it to Jessica Simps (shit!)
I guess I'll go sit with drum-boy
At least he'll know how to hit (oops!)
What if this song's on the radio
Then somebody's gonna die (hahaha!)
I'm gonna get in trouble
My ex will start a fight
Na na na na na na na
He's gonna start a fight
Na na na na na na na
We're all gonna get in a fight
So so what?
I'm still a rock star
I got my rock moves
And I don't need you
And guess what
I'm having more fun
And now that we're done
I'm gonna show you tonight
I'm alright, I'm just fine
And you're a tool
So so what?
I am a rockstar
I got my rock moves
And I don't want you tonight
You weren't there
You never were
You wanted all
But that's not fair
I gave you life
I gave my all
You weren't there
You let me fall
So so what?
I'm still a rock star
I got my rock moves
And I don't need you
And guess what
I'm having more fun
And now that we're done
I'm gonna show you tonight
I'm alright, I'm just fine
And you're a tool
So so what?
I am a rockstar
I got my rock moves
And I don't want you tonight
No no, no no
I don't want you tonight
You weren't fair
I'm gonna show you tonight
I'm alright (I'm alright), I'm just fine
And you're a fool
So so what?
I am a rock star
I got my rock moves
And I don't want you tonight
Ba da da da da da
