Melanie Martinez Releases Mrs. Potato Head To 3 Million Views in 24 Hours!
“(its) about feeling the need to change how you look to fit a certain standard, but the idea came from the visual of a Mrs. Potato Head and how you can pull apart the pieces and change her face, and how that couples with plastic surgery. When I wrote that song, I was going through a lot of personal insecurities about how I looked, and it was a reminder that I’m beautiful the way that I am, naturally, even when I don’t feel like it. I wanted that to be the message for other women, as well, who are struggling with the same thing . . . there are still people in the world who need songs to connect to and help them with their everyday battles.”
