[MV] 2NE1 believe they’re “UGLY”Posted: July 28, 2011
2NE1 has just released the music video for the song, “UGLY,” and it’s…almost…everything you could expect for a 2NE1 product. The girls sport eclectic and colorful street-punk fashion and they look about as fierce as ever, despite the gloomy looks on their face. No surprise there.
Taking a dramatic turn from their previous song “I’m The Best,” the lyrics of “UGLY” are all about hating yourself with no uplifting or encouraging verses, it’s just pure self-contempt. Despite the disparaging message of the lyrics, the MV features the girls taking out their frustrations in the streets and just not giving a damn. 2NE1 can only present so much vulnerability before it starts looking unbelievable.
