Beyonce is having a DAY. (Granted, it’s probably pretty amazing to wake up every day as Beyonce.) This morning, she was revealed as the cover of Time’s 100 Most Influential People of 2014 issue. She also ~officially~ released her music video for “Pretty Hurts.” And now, she’s letting us premiere a behind-the-scenes look at the filming of that video with commentary from Bey herself and “Pretty Hurts” director Melina Matsoukas.
The two drop knowledge about the pro-social aim of the video: a call-to-action for girls and women to think differently about how they view beauty. It’s a message that we’re behind in full—inner beauty will always shine the brightest—so we’re supporting her #WhatIsPretty campaign with some of our favorite inspirational Beyonce quotes about beauty and self-worth. We’ll be printing these out poster-size for our offices and homes, and we suggest you do the same.
