Melanie Martinez is like a pop star stolen from Dr. Seuss’s imagination: The 21-year-old singer-songwriter sports oversized hair bows, a bright-colored lip, and graphic teardrops on her cheeks. But there’s more to her baby doll style than meets the eye. Her song depicts drug misuse, melancholy, and familial problems through the eyes of a naive adolescent girl. Martinez’s debut 2015 album, Cry Baby (also the name of the singer’s alter ego), explores the existential dilemmas that young adults encounter. The lyrics are a strange mix of childhood innocence, adolescent anguish, and adult apathy, all performed over spooky synths and hard-hitting hip-hop beats.
Martinez’s passionately dedicated fan base, which today numbers in the millions, did not take long to create. Her debut record has been certified gold, and she is planning a second tour for the fall. Overall, she’s come a long way since walking into Atlantic Records’ headquarters wearing a doll-part necklace and hair dyed two different colors—an aesthetic she picked up from Cruella de Vil. A day before she performed at Lollapalooza, we spoke with pop’s biggest outlier about fantasy versus reality and what we can anticipate from her sophomore album.

Which Melanie Martinez Song Are You?
I had the pleasure of witnessing your performance at Panorama. Did you get to see any more games?
I didn’t get to see many games at Panorama. I experience a lot of anxiety both after and before I play. I just need to unwind by smoking some cannabis or watching some cartoons. When it comes to going to festivals and other social gatherings, I’m not much of a socialite. But hopefully, I’ll be able to watch a few artists perform tomorrow [at Lollapalooza]. Kehlani is one of my closest friends. She’s playing tomorrow as well, I believe on another stage, so I’m not sure if I’ll be able to catch her set, which is a shame because she’s fantastic.
Many artists are worried before a performance, but you also stated that you are anxious afterward. Why is this the case?
I’m not sure. I’m anxious all the time, including right now during interviews. I guess I just need to relax more often. It was just incredibly hot that day after Panorama, so I was really focused on going into air-conditioning [laughs]. That was the first thought that came to me.

For the first album, you created a character named Cry Baby. How closely does this character resemble you?
I’d known for a long time that I wanted to call my debut album Cry Baby. I couldn’t figure out why. I was first taken with the name, but as I thought about it further, I remembered that I had been dubbed a crybaby and made fun of a lot when I was younger for being too sensitive and emotional. Growing up, I believe that many people are taught that being emotional is a sign of weakness, and I was determined to conquer my fears about feeling out of control with my emotions. I wanted to make a song to help me deal with it, and “Cry Baby” was the result. That sounded like me. It was simply a self-description of how I’d felt my entire life.
