Sir Babygirl rewrites the story of queer teenagers with “Cheerleader” video

“Cheerleader” is taken from Sir Babygirl‘s debut album Crush on Me, out on Father/Daughter.

New York-based DIY pop artist Sir Babygirl has just shared the visuals of “Cheerleader,” a track taken from her fab debut album Crush On Me (one of our favourites of 2019). The video, which she co-directed alongside Olivia Cucinotta, features a bunch of up-and-coming New York comedians and actors in the role of horny studs and cheerleaders. For queer teenagers, high school is not often a piece of cake: when they’re not bullied, they’re at best ignored by their peers, who are, in the meantime, fully exploring their affective and sexual life.

“This video is for any queer person who wishes they could reclaim their high school experience and enjoy exploring their sexuality without guilt or shame,” explains Sir Babygirl. “Here’s to building the world we don’t want to just survive in but get to be our whole entire ridiculous fucking selves in, both within the music industry and outside of it.” The video features a bunch of up-and-coming New York comedians and actors in the role of horny studs and cheerleaders.
