Maria Brink Says “Sex Metal Barbie” Is About “All The Awful Things People Had To Say About Me”


In This Moment‘s Maria Brink took inspiration from her detractors for the bands latest track to be debuted, “Sex Metal Barbie” (hear it here.) She told Revolver:

“I wanted to take all the negativity that has come my way and turn it into something powerful for me to utilize. I’ve stopped reading social media in the last few years because I’ve realized the mean things people say can be toxic. So I’ve learned to become numb to it. I think it’s better to just do your art and follow your heart.

I don’t embrace the yucky stuff. But for this song, I decided to embrace it. I said, ‘I’m gonna go read all the really mean things that people say about me. All the rumors.’ So the whole band got online and started Googling. And then we wrote the song around all the awful things people had to say about me.”

The bands major label debut, “Black Widow“, arrives November 17th.
