Melanie Martinez responds to fans labeling celebrities as ‘Mom’ or ‘ Queen’

Melanie opened up on her Tumblr page about what it’s like for her when fans respond to her posts with labels such as “Mom” and “Queen.”

After having a fan steal her purse while backstage, Melanie tweeted in distress about the situation hoping to have her belongings returned to her. While having no luck in reaching the “purse thief,” fans of the 20-year-old musician responded to her tweets by simply saying, “Mom,” something Melanie considered extremely disrespectful.

Martinez reached her breaking point after a friend left their personal number on Twitter for the thief to call anonymously if they wanted to fess up. Melanie offered to forgive them and pick up her stolen belongings. Fans actually called the number hoping to talk to Melanie. Some made a joke of the situation pretending to be the thief.

In her Tumblr message, she began by saying “I’m so disappointed.” The post went on:

“I hate this internet age we live in too, because I reach out on Twitter trying to find who took my purse and all you write is “mom” “Queen” “follow me”. How is that normal?! How is that okay? How do you sleep at night? My friend gives his number out for anyone who might have any info, and people call laughing, asking if they could talk to me, lying saying they have my purse and will give it back if I get their tweet to 2,000 favorites. Really?”

Melanie’s message serves as not only an important matter for her “cry babies,” but to anyone connecting to their favorite celebrities via social media. As they may love to let you into their lives, keep in mind they are still people. Melanie continued her post expressing how stars feel “dehumanized” by fans.

“I don’t know how else to say this. I’m sick of artists feeling too scared to speak up on this issue. Just because I make music, doesn’t mean you have the right to dehumanize me. You bully me, you judge me, you call me a bitch If I’m having a bad day, the list goes on and on. I work my ass off for you, I give so much of myself to you, and i go broke to create for you.
Remember that I am a human.”

Her post ended by stating her appreciation to her fans, but said it was something she needed to address.

” I love everyone who supports me and my music, and I appreciate it. But after tonight there was no way that I couldn’t speak up about this issue.”

Unfortunately, the fan never returned Melanie’s purse or personal belongings, but the event served as reason for her to open up about something very personal to her.

Melanie revealed to Billboard that this isn’t the first time a fan took something from her. Last time, a fan stole a robe she wore on stage and watched her from behind the curtains as she retrieved it. What!?

“On one of my tours, I wore a vintage robe onstage that my friend let me borrow. I took it off onstage, and when I walked offstage, someone climbed up onto the stage and took it,” she said.

“That’s why I was even crazier this time. But I was able to get the robe back by going on social media. Someone told me, “My friend has it, but he’s too scared to talk.” So I was able to get his address and we drove to his house. And even then, he was so rude about the whole situation. I told him that I was personally going to come and get it, and there was this whole thing about, “My mom doesn’t want you to come in, and she’s sleeping and blah blah blah.” I was like, “I don’t want to come inside your house. I don’t want to meet your parents. I just want my robe back. You have something that doesn’t belong to you.” So, the kid put the robe in his mailbox, and my drummer went out and grabbed it. We saw the kid watching us from the blinds the whole time.”

    you wrote a catchier title? I am not suggesting your content
    isn’t good., however suppose you added a title to maybe grab folk’s attention?
    I mean Melanie Martinez responds to fans labeling
    celebrities as 'Mom' or ' Queen' is a little vanilla.
    You might look at Yahoo’s front page and see how they create
    news headlines to grab people interested. You might try adding a video
    or a related picture or two to get people excited about everything’ve got to say.

    Just my opinion, it might bring your website a little livelier.
