Have you listened to any Melanie Martinez songs? Yes? No? If you have, however, you know how original, creative, intelligent, witty, and different she is. Her music is very unique. In her one and only album Crybaby, she sings metaphorically through songs about love, murder, and being crazy or insane.

Recently, her former friend, Timothy Heller, posted some unbelievable things about Melanie, accusing her of assault. Melanie later denied the accusations. Fans exploded. Some sticking with Melanie, and some moving to Timothy´s side.

There were horrible videos uploaded to YouTube of people burning and throwing out their Crybaby merchandise. With some saying ¨In this house, we don´t support assaulters¨ as they burned their Crybaby items.

Of course, sexual assault is not okay and never will be. However, Timothy has shown no valid proof. She has shared a couple of pictures, however, none of these were relevant to the situation. A lot of fans are neutral on this dogfight of a topic. What do you think about it?

In mid-December, Melanie posted a song to Soundcloud titled ¨Piggyback¨ with the single cover shown above. Nobody saw this one coming. Everyone was shocked. Why? For two reasons. One, there was no notice of Melanie releasing a new song. Two, she’s not making money from it, because on SoundCloud you cannot make money from songs that are uploaded.

Everyone shortly realized why she posted the song. Here are the lyrics. 

Piggyback (Clean Version)

I was three years old

All I wanted was the music and

My parents were doing everything they could

To move away from our place working overtime always

While I sat up in my Grandma’s project building, coloring

Oh-oh-oh

Moved to a small town and

Started to started to grow

Poetry written, I´m singing and dancing

Oh-oh-oh

Photographs, paintings, cartoons

That’s all I know, That’s all I know

Oh-oh

I have one best friend to this very freaking day

Since we were five years old and I freaking moved away

I wish I never did cause she’s the only one

Who sees me

For who I really am instead of how many I reach

Oh-oh-oh

Trusted too many fake people while I was still young

Gave them the benefit of the doubt I was so wrong

I cut them off and they came for blood cause they know

They ain’t getting no more

I´m so done with playing Piggyback

Oh-oh-oh

Swear to god I wished y´all the best

Oh-oh

You´re lying your way to try to gain a piece of me

When you could never come close

Cause I know my destiny

I worked hard for my stuff

Put my love in this stuff

Now you´re trying to kill my name for some fame

What is this?

Tried to help you do your job

Encouraged you to work on it

Was a good friend and you used that to your advantage

Now I´m 22 and I´ve had a crazy year

Of isolation from all the plastic people here

I cannot wait for the day

Where I can finally move away

Back to New York City where the realest people really stay

Oh-oh-oh

Spent this whole time writing away my heart and my soul

The people I surround myself with have hearts filled with gold

Love and empathy are things that we hold so close

Trying to learn and evolve

I´m so done with playing piggyback

Oh-oh-oh

Swear to god I wished y´all the best

Oh-oh

You´re lying your way to try to gain a piece of me

When you could never come close cause I know my destiny

I worked hard for my stuff

Put my love in this stuff

Now you´re trying to kill my name for some fame

What is this?

Tried to help you do your job

Encouraged you to work on it

Was a good friend

And you used that to your advantage

I´m so done with playing piggyback

Oh-oh-oh

Swear to god I wished y´all the best

Oh-oh

You´re lying your way to try to gain a piece of me

When you could never come close

Cause I know my destiny

Obviously, this song is about Melanie´s life and her hardships. She talks about how Timothy befriended her, took advantage of Melanie, and then tried to destroy her. All for just a little bit of fame. This still does not prove Melanie innocent or prove her guilty.

What is your overall opinion on Melanie? Do you think Timothy´s allegations are true? Let us know in the comments below. (No rhyme intended) Further updates will follow. Until next time students, have a great day, or week, or whatever you want. Just let it be great.

  1. So before we get too caught up in this, this article is not my opinion, this was just breaking news. Anyways, here is my opinion on this situation. I currently do not believe Timothy’s accusations. She has posted was she claims is “proof” of the incident on Instagram and Twitter (@timethyheller). She has not contacted authorities, nor will she either. Because of what she claims “I do not want to get Melanie into trouble”. I mean whatever, she was your ex friend. But if someone commits such a crime to you even if it was an old friend, you shouldn’t not contact authorities. You should also not go shopping with her the next day. More proof to support Melanie, these claims that Timothy is claiming, Melanie was on tour in New York. I do not understand why everyone is seeing through all of this fake evidence. I also do not see why everyone is leaning towards her side. Some more proof, 5 hrs. after Timothy posted that tweet, she posted the link to her new song called “Sleep”. Which the beginning part kind of sounds likes Melanie’s “Night Mime”. (Listen to both and you’ll see what I mean, the beginnings sound the same). Also, a week after the claimed allegations, she posted a picture copying Melanie for one of her album photo shoots. So not only does she go shopping with someone who assaulted her, but she also copy’s her photo shoot and tries to be like Melanie. This is all very, very, valid proof that Timothy is guilty. I cannot wait for the day when everyone wakes up and realizes that Timothy is guilty and Melanie is proved innocent. Sorry for all of the rant, this is just my opinion. This may be a little bit controversial, but like I said this is just my opinion on the current situation. Have a good day Stacey Cougars!
