WATCH: Beyonce shares ‘Pretty Hurts’ video

Beyoncé‘s new single “Pretty Hurts” is a beautiful piece of work that you need to hear.  For those of you who don’t live under a rock, you probably already own Beyoncé’s self-titled album.  Those that own the album are not new listeners to this track.

The 7 minute music video portrays the song’s message perfectly.  The introduction is two minutes long.  The video begins with B staring at her reflection in the mirror.  The screen fades to Miss 3rd Ward wearing a brown/beige dress.

She looks flawless! Back to the music video—yes, she’s a pageant girl.  Fast forward to the next scene, we’re now in a room filled with pageant girls.  The girls are wearing gemmed up body suits, spray tanning, and doing their hair and make up.

Then we get to see her putting on some petroleum jelly on her teeth.  Do models really do all these things? Man, that looks like a tough life.

She has all these trophies, the beauty, the only thing that seems to be missing is, happiness.

Next up, it’s show time.  Miss 3rd Ward gets called up to the stage.  She sings an acapella version of “Pretty Hurts.”  It is perfection, flawless, and beautiful.

Next scene, the song finally starts.  Preparation for the pageants are still on the schedule.  Need we say more? Just watch the video for yourself.  The message is beautiful.  We don’t want to ruin the rest of the video for you all.  But happiness does not come with money or appearance!


Kim Kardashian adds diamond ‘North’ earring to personalized jewelry collection

(Yahoo!) – Kim Kardashian is a big fan of personalized jewelry.

On Wednesday, the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star went shopping at Canyon Beachwear in Studio City, California, with Kris Jenner. If you can peel your eyes away from Kim’s long leather skirt, the most noteworthy thing the star was wearing was a new accessory.

The bride-to-be sported an earring by Jennifer Meyer that spelled out “north” in diamonds in her left ear.

However, this isn’t the first time the 32-year-old has worn “special” jewelry.

Taylor Swift and Sarah Hyland take their bestie act to Off-Broadway

(Yahoo!) – Sarah Hyland brought a showstopper of a date to see the Off-Broadway show “Under My Skin.”

The “Modern Family” star, 23, went to check out her father in the play Wednesday night in Manhattan and turned it into a girls’ night out by inviting Taylor Swift, 24, to come along.

The gals, who have been hanging out since the fall and rang in the new year together, watched the comedy, then headed backstage to see Sarah’s dad, Edward James Hyland, who plays the part of Poppa Sam. According to an insider, Taylor and Sarah hung out for about a half-hour “talking and congratulating the cast.”

They posed for photos with the entire group, which also included Kate Loprest, Matt Walton, Allison Strong, Dierdre Friel, Tony Award-nominee Kerry Butler, Megan Sikora, and Andrew Polk. Everyone was “joking and playing around backstage” during Hyland and Swift’s visit. Edward, who has had roles in “Boardwalk Empire” and will be in the upcoming “The Leftovers,” proved to be a bit of a ham too while posing for photos, making it clear where Sarah inherited her comedic chops.
