This is Melanie Martinez.


She's a very exciting new popstar who you should really get to know, if you don't already, because we've decided that we now worship her, and that you should, too. 

Her music is really cool, and has this alt-pop edge to it that we really, really like.

Her song "Soap" has low-key been soundtracking our summer.


Great, now you've got a general idea and you're all caught up, let's get to why we're totally obsessed with her.

Her album is called Cry Baby, and so Melanie has gone in HARD with her look. 


Incredible. 


This is a really strong aesthetic and we're kinda living for it.

However, the whole thing has a bit of a history. Speaking to Nylon magazine, Melanie said that was really inspired by vintage, 50s children's toys and outfits, and she wanted to experiment about how to bring that into her music. 

"I have a song called "Training Wheels"," she told the magazine, "and it's about being in love with someone and taking it to the next level by taking off the training wheels. I love the contrast between adult situations and the kid themes."

In fact, the album has loads of songs like "Sippy Cup", "Milk and Cookies", and "Play Date" and "Mrs Potato Head" that totally embody this.  

We've also got serious hair goals from Melanie. She can rock practically anything. 


Blue and black is so chic.


Multi-coloured DREAM.

Melanie's Twitter is pretty existential, too. 

Also, food is pretty high on the agenda, which can only be a good thing.

She's also not afraid to speak her mind about a variety of different things.

Recently Melanie's purse was stolen from one of her shows, and this caused her to say these rather interesting and important things about fan culture and celebrity.

YES MELANIE, GO IN AND SPILL THE TRUTH TEA.

Not only that, but she thinks what we all think

These are all the reasons that we now worship Melanie Martinez.

Oh, she also still has baby teeth!

Amazing.
