Melanie Martinez Who Stole Her PurseLMNOLA
"I"'m so disappointed," The ex-The Voice contestant said. Apparently, her purse was stolen by a fan from her dressing room last night.
Understandably, the "Crybaby" singer was concerned. One of her friends even reached out to Twitter and gave out their personal phone number in hopes of the purse thief deciding to call to return it. Melanie also wrote an emotional rant of sorts on her Tumblr. Normally, this is the part where we would try and make a joke about the song being titled "Crybaby" in relation to her behavior, but the singer actually makes a lot of really valid points that we've never really seen an artist address before. What do you think? Take a look:
"Tonight I got my purse stolen from backstage. I had my passport in there, my card, personal shit from my parents, etc. not only is this illegal, but the fact that whoever took it, did it because they look at it as some sort of twisted "souvenir", makes me SICK. 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?
[…] 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. The fact that I was talking to another friend of mine who is an artist and she said that if we were bleeding on the sidewalk, people would probably take a selfie before helping us, is a problem. No human should feel this way."
