Kiyoko's music may talk about love and heartbreak in a way that's relatable for anyone, but her use of female pronouns has concerned those in the industry. "I've had several music industry execs say 'You're doing another music video about girls?' I literally looked at them and was like, um, yeah . . . Taylor Swift sings about men in every single song and video, and no one complains that she's unoriginal," Kiyoko told Refinery29. "I'm not over-sexualizing my music. I make out with women because I love women, not because I'm trying to be sexy. That's not to turn heads — that's my life."
