Pretty Hurts (Letra/Lyrics)

Ms. Third Ward, your first question
What is your aspiration in life?
Oh, my aspiration in life
Would be to be happy

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."

Just another stage, pageant the pain away
This time I'm gonna take the crown
Without falling down, down, down

Pretty hurts, shine the light on whatever's worse
Perfection is a disease of a nation, pretty hurts, pretty hurts
Pretty hurts, shine the light on whatever's worse
Trying to fix something but you can't fix what you can't see
It's the soul that needs the surgery

Blonder hair, flat chest
TV says, "Bigger is better."
South beach, sugar free
Vogue says, "Thinner is better."

Just another stage, pageant the pain away
This time I'm gonna take the crown
Without falling down, down, down

Pretty hurts, shine the light on whatever's worse
Perfection is a disease of a nation, pretty hurts, pretty hurts (pretty hurts)
Pretty hurts (pretty hurts), shine the light on whatever's worse
Trying to fix something but you can't fix what you can't see
It's the soul that needs the surgery

Ain't got no doctor or pill that can take the pain away
The pain's inside and nobody frees you from your body
It's the soul, it's the soul that needs surgery
It's my soul that needs surgery

Plastic smiles and denial can only take you so far
And you break when the paper sign leaves you in the dark
You left a shattered mirror and the shards of a beautiful girl

Pretty hurts, shine the light on whatever's worse (pretty hurts)
Perfection is a disease of a nation, pretty hurts, pretty hurts
Pretty hurts, shine the light on whatever's worse
Trying to fix something but you can't fix what you can't see
It's the soul that needs the surgery

When you're alone all by yourself
And you're lying in your bed
Reflection stares right into you
Are you happy with yourself
Strip away the masquerade
The illusion has been shed
Are you happy with yourself?
Are you happy with yourself?

Yes

Sobre Pretty Hurts

  • Una visión franca y muy personal de lo que es la belleza. El tema de apertura del innovador álbum de Beyoncé ofrece el primer punto de relevancia social en el disco: la perfección y el imposible estándar de belleza establecido en la sociedad, el cual está corrompiendo a la nación. Todos nos esforzamos por alcanzar esa idea singular y estrecha de la "perfección", a pesar de que la belleza en sí misma es subjetiva.

  • Dirigido por "Melina Matsoukas", el primer vídeo del album tiene a Bey interpretando a una concursante de un concurso de belleza que hace todo lo que está en su mano para lucir impecable, pero que todavía no puede alcanzar la perfección.

  • Matsoukas declaró en MTV News: "Bueno, creo que definitivamente queríamos hablar con tantas mujeres como pudiéramos, con todo el dolor y la lucha por la que pasamos como mujeres para mantener este estándar imposible de belleza. Queríamos darle un borde más oscuro y no darle la versión 'Disney' de esa lucha. Beyoncé estaba más que dispuesta a llegar tan lejos, y yo la aplaudo por eso."
