In "Pretty Hurts," Beyonce sings about the fatal consequences that our common pursuit of the perfect body can have -- a pretty amazing topic, isn't it? And the lyrics are freaking fantastic, see for yourself. Pretty hurts We shine the light on whatever's worst Perfection is a disease of a nation Pretty hurts, pretty hurts We shine the light on whatever's worst Tryin' to fix something But you can't fix what you can't see It's the soul that needs the surgery Now, why was my sister upset? As it turns out, she'd watched the video to "Pretty Hurts" and despite the fantastic lyrics, what you see on screen is a different picture. What you see is Beyonce being significantly thinner than before her pregnancy, creating the yearning for those watching the video to look like her, to do exactly what she sings about: strives for perfection, which hurts.
