Who doesn’t love a good breakup song? Whether it’s Carrie Underwood‘s vehicular revenge story on ‘Before He Cheats’ or Taylor Swift‘s gleeful insistence of “weeee-EEEEEE are never, ever, ever getting back together,” there’s something so cathartic about finding just the right song that describes your feelings after a relationship goes stale.
But sometimes, even the frustration of Olivia Rodrigo‘s ‘traitor’ or the sass of Tate McRae’s ‘what would you do?’ isn’t quite enough to match what you’re feeling. Sometimes you just wanna make your ex pay for the way they ripped your heart into shreds with their bare hands then threw it into a blender and ground it into one big gruesome smoothie of… sorry, we got a little too wrapped up there. Cue the latest banger from our new queen of heartache, Catie Turner!
Catie found the ultimate way to get back at her ex, and that’s by becoming their ‘Step Mom.’ Pretty clever, no? ‘Step Mom’ is an absolute trip full of witty comebacks and one-liners that we’re sure her ex is scathing at right about now! It’s a fresh take on everything we love about the best angsty breakup songs, in a way only Catie could bring to life.
“I’m with him now, but it could’ve been us
If you never did me wrong, I wouldn’t be your step mom…”
And can we talk about that music video for a second? Yup, that’s Miki Ratsula you’re seeing as both Catie‘s ex and his dad. It’s so trippy but we’re kind of digging it! Who do we need to talk to for this video to become a full-length feature film?
The ‘Step Mom’ video was so much fun to make. Huge thanks to Miki Ratsula for donning the mustache to make my twisted, dad-stealing psycho fantasy a reality.
Now, if you’ll excuse us, we have a few revenge fantasies to let out into our diaries while we’re inspired! What do you think of ‘Step Mom’ and Catie Turner‘s unique take on post-breakup revenge?
