2NE1 is breaking paradigms. The ONLY girl group, We dare say willing to let go of conventional limitations.. And create their ‘own’ identity as a renegade of sorts who has the power in this world in profound and staggering ways.
The lyrics of their song “Ugly,” which mentions of a damaged heart over other’s criticism on one’s ugly appearance, sends sad emotions unlike its up-tempo melody. Particularly, the line which says, “I think I’m ugly And nobody wants to love me Just like her, I wanna be pretty” makes a bond of sympathy with those who’ve had thoughts of envy, insecurity, and self contempt blaming all of these negative feelings over their appearance.
What’s more disturbing is that the song goes even deeper than it already is, far beyond just “physical appearance” although it seems that the song sings of such misery, despite the miserable words it’s backed away by an energizing chorus, which still makes you feel proud to look how you look. “You think you’re ugly, but who cares!” For that 2NE1 has again, gain our respect!
UGLY blew our minds and tugged our hearts. It has the emotion of Lonely, the energy of I am the Best, and the LYRICS worthy of song! There are simply no words to describe this song’s power.
One of the best KPOP songs of 2011, definitely deserving to win the MV of the year!
Thus, we humbly call all the blackjacks to Vote! How?
