GAYLE’s New Song ‘Everybody Hates Me’ Is An Angsty Anthem About Feeling Empowered By Hate

17-year-old songwriter GAYLE is having a good journey so far. Since her hit “Abcdefu” catapulted her into fame, she’s received support from Olivia Rodrigo, earned a Grammy nomination, and put out more songs to keep up the momentum. Today, she’s back with another.

“Everybody Hates Me” is a discordant, angsty anthem. It’s unfiltered and all over the place, diaristic in a Myspace-esque way: “Life’s a b*tch and I’m not surprised / If you read my mind you’d probably cry,” she drawls over pop-punk guitars. It doesn’t ask for pity, though: “Life’s a b*tch and she’s cool with me / I’ll let it be,” she concludes.

“There was a point in my life where I felt like I wasn’t getting respected and everything I was doing was being torn apart,” she said about the track. “I honestly felt like everybody hated me. Instead of drowning in it I felt empowered by it because I realized I didn’t have to do anything for anybody else. Because when everyone hates you, you may as well like yourself and do what you want.”
