Ever since the release of her single “Girls Like Girls” back in 2015, pop sensation Hayley Kiyoko has been on a mission to let her fans know that being queer is beautiful, both inside and outside of her music. But in a recent interview with PAPER, the singer also revealed that her fans helped her feel the same way.
Talking to PAPER for their Pride issue, Kiyoko said when the song’s co-writer Lily May Young asked her what she’d never written a song about, the singer decided to tell her the truth. “I came out to her and said, 'I just want to sing about being cocky and stealing someone's girl, because that's my dream.' She told me to write about it."
