"'Cuz I Can" is a song written by Pink, Max Martin and Lukasz Gottwald for Pink's fourth album, I'm Not Dead, from which it was released as a seven and last single for the album. It was one of the five album tracks that leaked onto the internet in July 2005.[1]

Lyrics and composition[]

Lyrically, the song is about Pink playing by her own rules, and boasting about her "bling", a contrast to the anti-consumerist content of "Stupid Girls", another track on the album. Referring to "'Cuz I Can", she called herself "a walking contradiction" and "a hypocrite sometimes."[2]


The track was sent to radio stations in Australia on October 4, 2007. It debuted at number 33 on the Australian ARIA Digital Track Chart and peaked at number 14.[3] The track debuted at number 39 on the New Zealand Singles Chart, becoming the first single to chart on download sales alone. It peaked at number 29.[4] "'Cuz I Can" was sent to Russian radio station on December 24, 2007. Single peaked at number 46 on the national radio chart.[5]

Music video[]

The official music video for the song was first seen on Australian television on October 5, 2007, and footage of a live performance from the I'm Not Dead Tour. The performance, which was the show opener for the tour, featured dancers dressed like monks and with only underwear beneath their robes.
