Breakout alt-pop star Madeline The Person has returned with her empowering and honest new single, “MEAN!”. The song’s raw, relatable message is reflected in the Tess Lafia-directed video, which showcases the young artist’s inspiring outlook on otherness. Watch the video now below.
“MEAN!” serves as the introduction to Madeline’s much-anticipated upcoming EP, Chapter 3: The Burning.
The video finds Madeline dressed as a clown at a party. Outcast by the cool kids, the singer/songwriter ultimately connects with another like-minded soul — also rocking clown makeup. “One single event, or even a couple of words, can literally impact your whole life and crush your self-esteem,” Madeline says of the song and video, which she made “in the hopes of letting others know they’re not alone in the sinking feeling that rushes over you when you hear hurtful words. The cool part about it all is that you will find people that love every part of you.”
