Maya Malkin has cracked the code of making catchy ear-worm pop songs.
There is strength and confidence in simplicity and it’s that simplicity which makes the song repeat on a loop in your head long after hearing it.
You will be minding your own business, and “C’mon now seriously” will enter and the song will start to autoplay in your head.
Other times, it’s “Congratulations” that will dig itself a little home and will pop up at odd time.
I would not be surprised if a Mayaholic Anonymous Group was formed.
Listen to her latest release here: Seriously?
Beneath the glossy pop song is a deeper message of “femininity and is about wanting to be taken seriously as a woman, whether that be romantically, as a musician, or as a human being in general.
To get to know Maya, read our previous interview.
We asked Maya to speak on a few topics related to the newest release.
Team Free Britney
Maya is on Team Free Britney, an modern example of someone who wishes to be taken seriously.
“Britney Spears was ahead of her time. She was a confident young woman in the 90s who was comfortable with her body, and that was something people didn’t understand.
I remember, as a young girl, thinking that labels had stepped in and “sexualized” Britney Spears’ image, but when you watch her interviews back, she was the one leading her self-image. She was just transitioning from girl to woman and was experiencing her own liberation.
When she had her public “break down” she was labelled as “crazy”. All we had back then was a very narrow view of celebrities and their struggles, and little did we know that she was actually fighting for her freedom.
With a new perspective, there’s been a wave of support for Britney online and I think we owe it to her fans, who have really fought for Britney throughout this whole thing, as well as social media for access to the information and different perspectives.”
Modern Femininity in 2021
“I think femininity can literally look like anything, honestly! There are no rules, and everyone has a bit of masculine and feminine energy in them – so femininity is totally up to interpretation and can be expressed in endless forms.”
“There are so many people out there who are great examples of female empowerment.
I would say anyone who identifies as female, or who celebrates feminine energy, who is putting themselves out there, and fighting the good fight, is a great role model.”
