“Everything that happens in your life could potentially be a great pop song.”
We’re topping off Trans Awareness Month with our new fave Kim Petras, who stopped by INTO recently for a bubbly shoot and interview (with actual bubbles y’all) about transitioning, escaping her troubles through music, and finding pop inspiration in the everyday.
If you don’t know Petras yet, it probably speaks more to which side of the Atlantic you live on than the effectiveness of your pop radar. The 25-year-old German singer and songwriter became the youngest known person to receive gender affirmation surgery at age 16, and she’s been a media sensation in Europe ever since.
Following several limited overseas releases, Petras made her stateside debut back in August with the Aaron Joseph, Cirkut, Lil Aaron and Dr. Luke-produced “I Don’t Want It At All,” a certified bop that has your favorite pop princesses nervously checking their tiaras. Press play above for more on her journey and an exclusive acoustic performance … featuring bubbles.
