New York, May 1: Pink has admitted that her sexual songs are an attempt to disprove the notion that men who sleep around are praiseworthy and women are sluts.

George Watsky, who turned a video where he raps remarkably fast from the comfort of his own bedroom into more than 400,000 subscribers and a starring web series role, has joined DeStorm on the list of YouTube rappers who have released an album in 2013. He dropped Cardboard Castles this week, his second full length recording to a hot reception at #10 on the Itunes Albums Charts. The album features Watsky's trademark vocal attack, with his mile-a-minute pace and extremely verbose lyricism as present as ever. Cardboard Castles has two other elements working in its favor. The entire CD case can fold into a cardboard house, thus giving people an actual reason to own a physical copy. Secondly, it's Phil DeFranco approved, which could lead to increased sales. Let's call it the sxephil bump. Sure enough, initial sales have been strong, with the album debuting in between Pink's The Truth About Love and Eric Clapton's Old Sock. »

She lost the Grammy for best pop vocal album to RCA Records labelmate Kelly Clarkson last week, but if an awards show should ever give out a trophy for best use of acrobatics in a pop concert, Pink surely would come out on top.

She did on her 2009 Funhouse tour, and showcased it on TV with a breathtaking performance of "Glitter in the Air" at the 2010 Grammys. Yet on this
