Song of the Week

This weeks Song of The Week goes to Pretty Hurts by Beyonce, pretty hurts is the first song off of  Beyoncé fifth studio album not only is the video powerful but so is the message behind the song  which  is “Well I think we definitely wanted to speak to as many women as we could and all the pain and struggle that we go through as women to maintain this impossible standard of beauty,” Matsoukas explained to MTV News. “We wanted to give it a darker edge and take it there and not give you the Disney version of that struggle. And Beyoncé was more than willing to go that far with it. And I applaud her for that. At one point, a frustrated Bey knocks down her wall of trophies, which is supposed “to represent knocking down those beauty standards and falling into a victim of that.”
