Abigail Breslin Releases First Music Video
Abigail Breslin, known for acting–specifically in Ender’s Game and Little Miss Sunshine–has released her first music video ahead of her debut album which is set to drop in April. The song is called “You Suck,” and is, according to many fans, about her ex-boyfriends. The video finds Breslin similarly tying up and getting revenge on an ex.
It is believed that the song is about 5 Seconds of Summer guitarist Michael Clifford, who the actress had dated previously. The lyrics include, “I hate the scar above your eye, it looks like you’re on drugs / And you really need to learn to wash your hair / Overall, you’re not a catch, you’re just a dumbass / Bleaching your hair, I hope it all falls out.”
Clifford has bleached his hair in the past and has a scar above his eye.
However, the song may also be about Jack Barakat, the lead guitarist of All Time Low, who Breslin also dated, and whose band is mentioned by name in her “You Suck” song.
Breslin has admitted to Teen Vogue that the song is about guys but she did not name names specifically. “‘You Suck'” is about guys who are players and use people and just generally aren’t really good people,” she said. “It’s about things I’ve witnessed–it’s not OK when guys don’t have respect for girls…I wrote it in the heat of the moment, and I think a lot of people will relate to it.”
Fans of Clifford and Barakat are not enjoying Breslin’s song, however. They have taken to Twitter to both defend the musicians and slam Breslin.
The year is 2178. I am still ranting about Abigail Breslin.
