If you weren't born with it
You can buy a couple ornaments
Just be sure to read the warning, kids
Cause pretty soon you'll be bored of it
Sexual, hey girl if you wanna feel sexual
You can always call up a professional
They stick pins in you...

    It's a parody of now...look at the Kardashians, Models...media in general...all they tell us is to be stick thin, plump up your lips, smooth your skin out, get Botox, get your breasts as big as a watermelon, fill your ass up with silicone...but this song is very much amazing, and it mirrors what we see...pill diet and such

    Mrs. Potato Head by Melanie Martinez symbolizes the insecurities of women who result to plastic surgery. The line "Baby soft skin turns into leather -
    Don't be dramatic it's only some plastic -
    No one will love you if you're unattractive" means that plastic surgery will 'fix your face', but it also takes away your natural beauty. Also, "Do you swear you'll stay forever, even if her face don't stay together" explains itself. She's asking her lover if he'll stay with her if what's supposed to make her beautiful makes her ugly. The song basically means that being fake is bad.

    I believe that the meaning of the song is that
    People can be upset about there appearance or they could be bullyed into thinking so. The lyric "baby soft skin turned into leather" represents that you can go from a normal look to looking like a barbie doll and a barbie dolls skin is rough and hard like leather. So she is saying that you can go from looking li you to being like a plastic doll just like a barbie or a bratz doll

    I think the song is about crybaby feeling insecure about herself, and is thinking about plastic surgery."oh mr. potato head told me, how did you afford a surgery" She's feeling very insecure about herself, and I think she's talking about herself in 3rd person "No one will love you if you're unattractive."

    Mrs Potato Head is about girls finding "the perfect man" and the man not happy with the girls facial features and because he has lots of money he thinks he can pay any women to do whatever he wants and in this situation he makes the girl (who is beautiful anyway) get plastic surgery. when it is time to reveal how the surgery went he realises that he hates how she looks now and that he wasted his money and cant stay with her. she sees how she looks and realises that shes made a terrible mistake and sees the man doing the exact same thing to another beautiful girl.

    moral of the story... every girl is beautiful in their own way and should never change themselves for a man, if he doesnt like the way you look then his not worth all the trouble. find someome who loves you for the way you are

    i think that all these interpretations are correct. it does mean about changing ourselves for people but also maybe being a people pleaser and wanting people to accept us and fit in.

    Mrs. Potato Head is trying to tell you that you don't need plastic surgery to be loved. You want someone who WILL 'Stay forever' If you use thousands of dollars, you might never get someone. Your beauty reflects who you are as a person, not how you look. people will say that 'no one will love you if you're unattractive' well I think that it is wrong to hurt yourself for others.

    I also think that this song simply tells us to appreciate the way we are and be content. If boys don't see the way you are and accept it it means that they don't love you. So girl stop adding or subtracting things from your body you beautiful just the way you are.

    It's telling girls that you don't need plastic surgery to make you hot or sexy.. just be yourself. You don't need ass implants or breast implants to make a boy like you. They should like you for who you are, lol..

    The title of the song itself refers to plastic surgery. A girl who is beautiful however extremely insecure, uses plastic surgery to change her face. With a potato head, you can take off the facial features and change it. This represents that with plastic surgery, they "take" off their face and change it. Melanie wants to show that all women are beautiful and don't need plastic surgery to be beautiful. Specific lines show that woman think that they wont be loved if they're"unattractive" so they change to be loved.

    Cry Baby sees Mrs.Potato Head, a woman with a plastic face and lots of surgery. After being broken hearted so many times, Cry Baby looks at Mrs.Potato Head and wonders if pain is beauty. Cry Baby realizes that it isn’t worth paying $1000 for a compliment. Maybe there is beauty in all the pain Cry Baby experienced in her life as well.

    It means that a girl who feels ugly, is asking the doctor if she gets a plastic surgery everything will get better since she thinks no one will love her is she's unatracttive. What Melanie is trying to say is that so many people are fake and that's not right. The meaning when she says,'tell me you'll stay forever, even if her face don't stay together' means that a girl is looking at another girl that got a plastic surgery and looks beautiful but also the girl that feels ugly know that its a bit dangerous, but she still wants the doctor to stay even if the beautiful girls face don't stay together.
