She performed her new single “Pity Party” for her appearance, a song based on the 1963 Lesley Gore hit “It’s My Party”. Other celebrities who love showing off their tooth gaps include Becky G and Jessica Pare.

In an August 2015 interview with Patrick O’Hagan published in Chattanoogan, Melanie revealed she can shoot chocolate milk out of the gap between her two front teeth.

If she fixed her teeth, she’d lose her trademark smile and her hidden talent as well. Melanie Martinez reportedly still has two of her baby teeth.

Growing up in a poor family, she had to teach herself how to play the guitar because her family couldn’t afford music lessons.

It’s unlikely that her parents Mery and Jose Martinez would have been able to pay the dental costs associated with fixing her teeth.

“I think that ‘Cry Baby’ came from a nickname I was called as a kid,” Martinez told Orlando Sentinel about being bullied while growing up.

“Growing up I always took things too personal, and was very emotional and got I made fun of for it,” she added.

In October 2013, TV and stage actress Melanie Martinez, who was a member of Team Adam in the third season of the American television vocal talent show The Voice, shared some photos that show her wearing the Jeffrey Campbell “The Pointe” platform shoes that you can buy on Nordstrom.

Melanie must have found love for her new shoes since she wore them on two consecutive days. How about you? Do you love them? Personally, I’m not into flatforms. They seem too big for my feet.

The Long Island native and Voice alum also wore these shoes to the Los Angeles premiere for Freak Show. She styled them with blue lipstick, dyed pink eyebrows, and her signature royal blue and black hair.

These Jeffrey Campbell shoes are like a pair of ballet flats that have, well, flatforms.

They feature 4.5-inch heels and 3.5-inch platforms. While they look chunky, the quilted satin material in pink and the velcro ankle straps add a soft touch. Would you wear them?
