Maggie Lindemann’s Song ‘Pretty Girl’ Isn’t What You Think
Maggie Lindemann is a smart, hardworking gal from Texas who moved to LA to pursue her music. The girl is killing the game with over 1.6 million followers on IG and her music on Spotify and Apple Music. At only 18 years old, she has some big things to say about how girls are perceived in her song “Pretty Girl.”
So why did you make the song “Pretty Girl”?
I would notice people would be like, “how is she famous? Oh, she’s pretty”. People would judge based on that. I wanted to show people that there’s more to girls than just being pretty. We have so much to offer. People should get past the physical appearance to something deeper.
What’s the style of the song?
It’s more pop. I thought that was the best way to get the message out, and it turned out pretty cool!
What’s the first song you put out?
“Knocking on your Heart” was my first song I put out. It’s about a broken relationship where you don’t understand what you did wrong and what’s happening.
How would you describe your sound?
Alternative, sultry pop. More of a darker pop sound. A mix of Ariana Grande, Lana del Rey, Marina, a little bit of old Miley.
Are you currently making more music?
Yeah, some new sounds, I’m super excited to put it out!
Singles for now but eventually an EP!
What topics are you going to cover?
Just life. I don’t wanna do as much relationship stuff because that’s just not where I’m at right now.
Lana, Marina, Rihanna, Charli XCX.
Rihanna. Her fashion is just everything. Kylie too. I look to the Kardashians a lot for style.
I would love to do a song with a rapper. I think that would be really cool because I love rap. Someone like A$AP Rocky or Travis Scott would be extremely cool.
What advice would you give to girls that you wish you knew when you were younger?
I wish I knew that the stuff that’s happening to you when you’re younger is temporary. If you’re being bullied at a school, you’re not gonna be at that school forever, you’re not going to know those people forever.
How do you think people describe you?
I’m very happy. I’m a happy person. Crazy. Wild.
Is there a side that people don’t usually see?
I try to put everything out there. So people know I’m crazy, I’m serious, I like to party, but I like to do my work. I’m very hardworking.
When can we expect your new songs to come out?
Beginning of 2017.
