Bonnie McKee – Don’t Get Mad Get Famous (Official Music Video)

You don’t have to yearn for the spotlight to make “Don’t Get Mad Get Famous” your motto.

This 80 second “microbop” is not exclusively for those seeking fame and fortune- this song is for anyone who’s ever felt belittled or ridiculed for following their own path. It’s about being your fabulous self no matter who tries to dim your light!

If you’re brave enough to live your own way, there’s always gonna be somebody with something to say about it. They hate you, cuz they ain’t you! Pay them no mind, sashay away.

Now I typically love a long luxurious song that takes me on a journey. Most of my songs are at least 3.5 minutes. But this one is short and sweet for a reason- she was originally meant to just be an interlude for the album, but I loved her so much I decided to make her a single! Besides, it’s a simple affirmation, an incantation- a mantra, even. It felt right to keep her bite sized and to the point.

So if the haters try to get you down, just remember: Don’t Get Mad…Get Famous!
