Abigail Breslin’s “You Suck” Music Video Slammed By 5 Seconds Of Summer And All Time Low Fans
Abigail Breslin premiered the music video for her new song “You Suck” on Wednesday, and now the teen actress is being slammed on social media for allegedly dissing 5 Seconds of Summer guitarist Michael Clifford and All Time Low vocalist Jack Barakat on the track.
In the video, Breslin sings: “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.” Breslin talked to Teen Vogue about her first music video, explaining, “This is a song I wrote about those guys who are players and use people and just generally aren’t really good people.” She continued, “It’s about things I’ve witnesses, 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.”
The Little Miss Sunshine star said she gets her “inspiration from guys” in general, but many are accusing her of writing about Clifford in her lyrics. One 5 Seconds of Summer fan tweeted, “Abigail Breslin and that stupid song about Michael was seriously uncalled for. Grow up that was over a year ago, obviously you are obsessed.” Another wrote, “who is abigail breslin and why is she trying to be relevant by writing a song about michael.” Breslin’s name soon became a trending topic on Twitter. Others on social media are speculating that the song is about All Time Low vocalist Jack Barakat because of the song’s lyric: “sounds like All Time Low.” One person noted on Twitter, “the funny thing is abigail breslin used to date jack barakat and she mentioned all time low 10 seconds into the song.”
But not everyone dismissed Breslin’s musical debut. Many fans tweeted their support at the actress, with one person writing, “@yoabbaabba great work with the new song, congrats on being stupidly talented at like EVERYTHING!” Another added, “Congrats on the new music video @yoabbaabba you’re wonderful and I think I love you more than the 2009 Jonas brothers xx.” Breslin also took to Twitter following the debut of “You Suck,” writing, “got the sweeeeetest voicemail from my love @HaileeSteinfeld about the new videoooo I LOVE YOU.” Breslin’s new song will be featured on her upcoming album, which is slated for release in April.
