These tropes are embarrassing: Tropes applying to Sky Ferreira and her work
- Contemptible Cover: Her album Night Time, My Time shows her topless in the shower.
- Darker and Edgier: Gradually, she started making mainstream-sounding Electropop in 2010, to turn her music into a hybrid between Noise Rock, New Wave and Synth Pop music by 2013.
- Dream Team:
- With Ariel Pink, for a new version of his song "My Molly".
- With Blood Orange, who produced "Everything Is Embarrassing".
- With Garbage's Shirley Manson, who co-wrote "Red Lips".
- Eye Scream: from "Boys": "cross my heart and hope to die, stick a needle in my eye".
- Gratuitous Japanese: "Omanko," which is Japanese slang for "pussy."
- Last Note Nightmare: The title track of her debut album sounds itself nightmare-ish, but in the last minute it starts getting more and more sparse, and really darker, repeating the lines "...faster and faster..." a lot of times, and just when the track hits it's darkest, it ends abruptly.
- Lyrical Dissonance: Despite the dance-y atmosphere of her song "Lost In My Bedroom", the song is about dealing with a break-up.

- Odd Friendship: With Miley Cyrus. Also, her family used to be friends with Michael Jackson.
