A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this music.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that though The Truth About Love isn't the most graphic album out there, it still contains its fair share of mature topics -- such as "slutty" behavior, one-night stands, and drinking -- and language, like "f--k" and "s--t". While the explicit version of the record is definitely too mature for tweens, parents will still want to watch out for songs including "Slut Like You" that also appear in the edited edition.

What's the story?
THE TRUTH ABOUT LOVE is the sixth studio album from the female pop singer who continues to defy stereotypes -- Pink. It's her first record since 2008's Funhouse, after which she took a few years off to start a family with her husband, professional motorcycle racer Carey Hart. On this album, she gets an assist from artists like Eminem and Nate Ruess, lead singer of the band fun.
Is it any good?
Talk to your kids about ...
Families can talk about the kind of example Pink is setting for her infant daughter with songs like "Walk of Shame," about trying to sneak home unnoticed after spending the night with someone, and "True Love," about loving someone you consider an "a--hole."
