Music: Beyonce - Pretty Hurts

2014-05-02 12:00


In a nutshell: Perhaps one of the most amazing songs on a stellar album, Beyonce's, Pretty Hurt, finally got released as a single, so the whole world could appreciate it

What’s it like: Being a fly on the wall of a beauty queen's life. It's a stirring commentary on what is really beautiful and it's , erm, beautifully done.

Fave Bit: A chorus that at first  irritated but really grew on us. Still, the best is the opening lines " Mama said, "You're a pretty girl.What's in your head, it doesn't matter. Brush your hair, fix your teeth. What you wear is all that matters". #Tears

Rating: There's no one better to provide a stirring commentary on the true definition of beauty than Beyonce, with lyrics that sound better than a political speech. Catchy hooks and haunting vocals point to another hit from Queen B     5 /5
