The pop singer says the gay wedding of 'Raise Your Glass' music video is inspired by the 'heartbreaking' wedding of her best friend.

Pop star Pink has depicted a same-sex wedding in her latest music video - after watching her lesbian best friend's "heartbreaking" blessing ceremony. The singer features gay couples in the new promo for her single "Raise Your Glass" and admits the idea was inspired by her own pal, who recently 'wed' in a commitment ceremony. California law forbids homosexual couples from legally marrying.

Pink explains, "I threw my best friend's wedding in my backyard. She is gay and it was a beautiful ceremony. At the end of it, her mom said, 'Why can't that be legal?' and started crying. It was the most heartbreaking thing I've ever seen and that's why I'm doing it in my video."

The "So What" hitmaker is set to be honoured for her work with the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community at the Human Rights Campaign's 14th annual National Dinner at the weekend. Veteran star Bette Midler will present her with the special Ally for Equality Award.

she doesnt have to have a rhyme or reason for how she does things. be glad she is giving the gay community any positive support at all. god knows as part of the gay community we do a good enough job of making people hate us as it is. leave it alone she is at least doing something positive quit bashing her for her work.

SORRY BUT GET OVER YOURSELVES, SHE DOESNT HAVE TO EXPLAIN HER VIDEOS TO U LIKE U DONT HAVE TO EXPLAIN YOUR SEXUALLITY TO ANYONE.

If Pink is so gay-friendly, why hasn't she shown male couples or male-male sensuality in her videos? She's had ample opportunity to do so but has failed. She comes across as yet another phony on gay rights.

Pink is a fake gay advocate. She claims to be for gay rights but is simply using it to market herself. She avoids showing male homosexuality.
