I tried so hard to not make it in any way offensive.” She later clarified, saying, “The whole idea of the song is, it’s kind of a joke. It’s kind of like ‘I’m an ass and you don’t love me. And you don’t love me because you don’t love me and that’s the only reason and I wish you didn’t love me because you didn’t love girls.’”

One of her biggest hits was the song called “bury a friend.” Her haunting lyrics fit the music video that contributes to the overall creepy vibes of the song. With over 83 million views on Youtube, the video is one of her most viewed.
