Poppy is one of the strangest yet interesting creators on the internet

Poppy  is an American teenage singer-songwriter who has garnered internet fame for her innocent, childlike appearance and a series of avant-garde monologues and music videos on YouTube.

“After I show my coworkers a handful of Poppy’s videos, Nicola messages me: “That Poppy is like Sad Art Girl Tumblr but through the lens of a peppy, pastel Teen Vogue editorial with a sniff of Lana Del Rey. Everything going on in her videos, on her Instagram, with her style with her speech, feels familiar, but I can’t put my finger on all the ingredients.”

She did put her finger on something: ambiguity is the point.

“I don’t want to put myself in a box. That’s like the worst thing you can do,” Poppy says. Her ideal response from viewers? “‘I don’t know how I feel about it yet.'” – Racked
