7 Reasons You Should Be Totally Obsessed With Melanie Martinez

Learn all about the up-and-coming pop princess right here, right now!

1 / 7

Her last single is totally badass, and yet, it's called "Sippy Cup"

It's bizarre in a Dresden Dolls "Coin-Operated Boy" way, but it's also catchy as hell. Feel weird singing about sippy cups as an adult? Well, that's about to change!

2 / 7

She's obviously the voice of a Tumblr generation

Just look at her! Just listen to her! If that doesn't scream 2015, we don't know what does.

3 / 7

She's an incredible live performer

Sometimes it's hard to get breathy, slow-motion pop to translate live, but our girl Mel manages to do so...flawlessly. 

4 / 7

She was on The Voice...and should've won

The reason we know all about the 20-year-old star is that she once auditioned for The Voice. She came in third, so she didn't win, but that's okay. She obviously has a bright future ahead of her!

5 / 7

She's like a fantasy-world Lana Del Rey / Halsey hybrid

If our ladies Lana Del Rey and Halsey are a bit too sexualized, a bit too vulnerable for ya, Martinez offers a PG alternative. The sounds are similar, the message is not. 

6 / 7

Her style is insane!

This first thing anyone notices about Mel is, well, her! Homegirl's style is so very unique to her...she looks like a pastel goth doll half the time.

7 / 7

She's, like, ridiculously charming

You could lose yourself in her interviews. MM makes sure to express all of her interests eloquently, and if you're lucky, you might even pick up a style tip or two.
