Mrs. Potato Head | Melanie Martinez

hello guys, guess who came out with yet another great music video? MELANIE MARTINEZ! if you haven't heard any of her songs, GO LISTEN. NOW. i believe her most popular song is "Pity Party."

but anyways. the music video. i must admit that her videos are a tad bit creepy & this one made me cringe at some points (there's a "surgery" scene & i can't handle cutting skin or anything like that) but i still love love love her videos. i believe she does direct them herself & all of her videos are based about the story of "Cry Baby."

Cry Baby is kind of like Melanie's "alter ego," if you will. & the whole album (also named Cry Baby) revolves around Cry Baby's story. there is a lot of background info but i won't bore you with all of it since google is a thing but i really like the message behind this song "Mrs. Potato Head." if you read some of the lyrics, it's basically about girls feeling like they need to get plastic surgery in order to be beautiful & how Cry Baby sees this & decides she doesn't want to be like "Mrs. Potato Head."

"Sexual, hey girl if you wanna feel sexual
You can always call up a professional
They stick pins in you like a vegetable"

"Baby soft skin turns into leather
Don't be dramatic it's only some plastic
No one will love you if you're unattractive"

"Oh Mrs. Potato Head tell me, is it true that pain is beauty?
Does a new face come with a warranty?
Will a pretty face make it better?
Oh Mr. Potato Head tell me
How did you afford her surgery?
Do you swear you'll stay forever
Even if her face don't stay together?"

"It's such a waste
When little girls grow into their mothers face
But little girls are learning how to cut and paste
And pucker up their lips until they suffocate"
