PinkPantheress says ‘Boy’s A Liar’ is “crap” comment was taken out of context

PinkPantheress has shed new light on recent comments that suggested she thought her hit song ‘Boy’s A Liar’ and its remix with Ice Spice were “crap”.

The singer and producer recently spoke to The Guardian, where she opened up about her newfound fame and how it’s impacted her career. “With every new height that I achieve, I feel like I have to do something that proves that I’m a serious artist,” she said. “Even with ‘Boy’s a Liar’: people know me for the song, but I feel like now I have to prove that I can write.”

The Guardian reported that PinkPantheress said she “didn’t expect it to be my biggest song”: “I thought on an internet level it was going to be big. I didn’t expect it to be big on the radio.”

The artist also supposedly told The Guardian that she thought ‘Boy’s a Liar’ and its remix with Ice Spice was “crap”: “The songs that are not my greatest are the ones that do better.” She also called the song ‘Internet Baby’ off her new album ‘Heaven knows‘ “crap”.

However, PinkPantheress took to social media yesterday (November 13) to explain that the comment was a “false narrative”. “Lord help us,” she wrote on X. “I told the journalist I thought the OG was crap at first but the remix made me love it, I’ve said this openly before too.”

PinkPantheress recently released her debut album ‘Heaven knows’ on November 10, which NME rated four stars: “Ultimately, what makes ‘Heaven Knows’ such a compelling debut is its ability to create British wistfulness. The emotions and sounds are familiar enough to pull you in, and peculiar enough to make you stay. Heaven knows the boundaries of Pink’s talent to come.”


She also said she wants to be revered for her songwriting and producer abilities and be known as “the female Rick Rubin“. “When people try and people tell me, ‘You’re not a great performer,’ or ‘She needs to improve,’ I’m always like, ‘Babe, I don’t even really want to do the performing.’ I’m more of a writer. I want to be like Rick Rubin — the female Rick Rubin.”

In other recent news, the singer revealed that she missed a potential collaboration with Kendrick Lamar after putting her phone on silent to watch a film: “Oh fuck, I can’t even think about it. I was watching Nightcrawler with this guy.”

The Bath-born musician also said recently that she used to cry herself to sleep because she couldn’t become a K-pop star. “There was one year where I– [laughs] I remember I would go to bed upset each day that I know I couldn’t be a K-pop star,” she said.

“At the time, I thought you had to be Korean to be a K-pop star,” she added. ”I used to cry myself to sleep, even though I can’t perform like that. I can’t dance at all. Like, I just love watching it.”
