Princess Cyberspace’s ‘So Relatable’ is Everything You Hate About the Internet

+

More often than not, my wormhole Internet searches lead me to the most regrettably deep depths of cyberspace—those places that make you realize how embarrassing our world really is. Somehow last night, LA-based artist Princess Cyberspace happened upon my screen, her candy-colored website claiming she’s “regarded as the first American artist to introduce the genre of ‘cyber pop’ to the Universe.” Interesting.

With a look and sound that feels so shamelessly post-Internet, it’s unclear whether this project is complete satire or the Princess’ response to absorbing every single digital trend that’s come and gone throughout the past year.

Her lead single, “So Relatable,” is the modern-day equivalent of Rebecca Black’s “Friday,” chock-full of lyrics that’ll make you cringe and laugh—cry and reminisce about a time when lines like, “I wish that he liked more pics on my Instagram,” or, “He doesn’t like my selfie, but I guess it’s alright,” were meaningless.

Listen, below, as the self-annointed purveyor of cyber pop brags about the thousands of likes she gets and how her crush’s memes make him seem like he’d be “cool IRL.” I think that’s enough Internet for today.
