Check out our interview with self-titled “tranny pop-star” Mel 4Ever who just released her new single “I HATE U”, the song is “about releasing that initial feeling of pure hatred when someone hurts you. It’s the feeling of when you want to hurt somebody back because they have hurt you so much. I wanted to use very industrial and intense sounds to portray that visceral, heart throbbing, heated feeling of “hatred”. By recognizing that connection, and not willing to participate in it, makes me hate that person even more.” confides the artist.

Hi Mel, please tell us a little about you?

I’m from Alabama, grew up very religious. Now in my late 20s, I am here to corrupt brainwashed minds and force everyone to forget what they’ve learned and start thinking for themselves through sickening music.

Describe yourself in 3 words?

Simply that bitch.

We’re sure you have been asked this million times but how did you get in the industry?

I wanted a trans popstar to look up to, but there were not that many examples. So I took matters into my own hands.

How has this changed your life?

I went from working in a restaurant to performing in front of massive crowds, its changed everything.

Describe your sound in 3 words?

Scary, sexy, slut.

Who influenced you and why did you choose to make music?

I’m influenced by Nicki Minaj, Taylor Swift, Kesha–early aughts pop stars. They were always my escape. Making music was not a choice, it was something I had to do.

Walking off stage after a good performance. It’s my favorite feeling.
