Pretty hurts
We shine the light on whatever's worse

from Beyoncé – Pretty Hurts Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

While prettiness is something that is highly looked upon and highly regarded in society, it hurts for people who are pretty and who are not. The pretty people have to hurt their body to keep up with what people view as the standard, while the people who aren’t at that level are judged and are hurt by the judgement.
