Wikipedia says that the song/video are hinting at suicide... Maybe that's why he jumps into the icy water?

I didn't know you could use wikipedia for interpretation of music videos!

I thought that might be the case, but there was such a furor over that Britney Spears video where she may be attempting suicide, I was suprised no such commentary on this video.

I did a google search, they were the one site that had a specific comment on his music, lol.

I also heard he was inspired to write it after seeing his old GF with another man (not that it made him suicidal...).

Yes, looks like suicide to me, which makes me sad cuz while watching the video I just want to give him a warm blankie, mug of cocoa, crackling fire and moi! (sssshhhh, don't tell DH!)

I can tell ya....the story behind 'Beautiful' is that he saw his ex-girlfriend with her new boyfriend on the subway, she had left him some time before and he was finding it hard to get over the break up - hence the lyrics 'it's time to face the truth, i'll never be with you'
Based on true life, so i hear!

My OH is friends with, and works occasionally with JB's auntie, The OH managed to grab a VIP guest ticket to a JB concert last year, and i couldn't go cos i had to BABYSIT:blink:
Anyway, JB is off promoting his album right now and won't be back until July (ish).:P

I can try and find out what the water part in the video is for? I would assume it's just part of the video and he's kinda giving up on the fact that he won't ever be with the girl he once loved?
