P!nk teams up with drag queens for epic lip sync ‘Walk Me Home’ music video
P!nk has dropped a new music video for single “Walk Me Home,” starring drag queens.

P!nk releases drag queen lip sync extravaganza
In the clip, the queens don red outfits and short blonde wigs to audition for two conservative-looking judges, lip-syncing to the track.
The music ends with the two judges looking stunned, before breaking out into an enthusiastic applause.
Taking to Twitter, P!nk wrote: “This is the BEST lip sync battle I’ve ever seen feast your eyes! ‘Walk Me Home’ by @SinkThePinkLDN ❤️ Check it out!”
Sink the Pink tweeted: “Well, this was always going to happen… Take #SinkThePink, @BGWMC [Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club] and one giant dose of megastar @Pink and this is what you get. Share, love, see the full vid.”
It’s the second video for the track, which received another music video in March starring P!nk dancing in the streets.
P!nk is a long-time LGBT+ ally
It’s not the first time P!nk has released a video featuring LGBT+ content.
In 2018, the singer released a music video for track “Secrets” full of same-sex dancing.
The singer, real name Alecia Beth Moore, also made a passionate speech at the MTV VMAs in 2017 in defence of gender non-conforming people addressing her six-year-old daughter Willow
She said: “Recently I was driving my daughter to school, and she said to me, out of the blue: ‘Mama, I’m the ugliest girl I know… I look like a boy with long hair.’
“My brain went to, you’re six, who said this, can I kick a six-year-old’s ass? But instead I went home and made a PowerPoint presentation for her.
“In that presentation were androgynous rock stars and artists who live their truth, are probably made fun of everyday of their life, and carry on, and wave their flag and inspire the rest of us.”
The artist added: “When people make fun of me, that’s what they use. They say that I look like a boy, or I am too masculine, too many opinions, my body is too strong. But do you see me changing my hair, changing my body, changing the way I present myself to the world?”

She said: “We are a very label-less household.
“Last week [daughter] Willow told me she is going to marry an African woman. I was like: ‘Great, can you teach me how to make African food?’
“And she’s like: ‘Sure Mama, and we are going to live with you while our house is getting ready.’
“I was in school and the bathroom outside the kindergarten said: ‘Gender Neutral — anybody’, and it was a drawing of many different shapes.
“I took a picture of it and I wrote: ‘Progress’. I thought that was awesome. I love that kids are having this conversation.”
