Margaret Cho isn’t just dropping her own music videos; she’s totally going the pop star route of being featured in other rising stars’ songs too!
The comic-actor-singer collaborated with Awkwafina, a young MC you may know from MTV‘s Girl Code or Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, for a track all about taking stereotypes and blowing them up!
Ch-ch-check out the fierce NSFW Green Tea music video (below)!
Margaret loved making the song and music video with the rising rapper. She said:
“It was incredibly natural and easy – as if the song had been already written and we were just channeling it! Awkwafina is the future!”
For Awkwafina, aka Nora Lum, it was more than fun — it was EVERYTHING. She explained:
“I remember watching Margaret Cho with my grandmother on TV. She was my hero, not only because she was funny, but because she showed me that it’s okay to be yourself, that it’s okay to be a brash yellow girl, and to be a strong and brave woman. To collab with her is a dream come true, but larger than that, there has rarely been two Asian AMERICAN WOMEN being ratchet together, or just being in a music video. This song is a tongue and cheek take on traditional stereotypes, with a strong underlying message for all young women of color to embrace their quirkiness, their sexuality, their inner-child and their creativity with passion. I love Margaret, and I hope some young girl (but not too young) watches this video and it inspires them somehow. Stay angry!”
LOVING her already!
