Juliet Simms provides examples of:

  • Animal Motif: Snakes. Her fans affectionately call her "Mama Snake", and in turn are called "Snakeys" by Juliet. She also has a snake tattoo.
  • Break-Up Song: Surprisingly, the majority of her songs sound like they have this theme. The most notable example is "End of the World" ...which is confusingly dedicated to her husband.
    Since you left
    every breath feels like it’s burning
    I know that life will go on
    I will survive,
    but for tonight
    I’d swear on my life
    this is the end of the world
  • Broken Bird: Another recurring theme in her music. Also applicable to Juliet herself.
  • The Chanteuse: Has shades of this.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Some of her earlier work, notably during the Automatic Loveletter era, can come off as this.
  • Double Standard: Abuse, Female on Male: Beat up her husband during a flight in October 2016, which was widely reported by the media (including TMZ). Adult film actress Mary Carey was a witness to the incident and filmed a non-sponsored recollection of the account that was uploaded to her YouTube channel. Both Juliet and Andy addressed the incident as her "drinking too much", and the couple as well as her PR team has worked hard ever since to hide the incident, including playing it off as a shouting match and saying she'd never hit him (she admitted she had previously during the in-flight video), blaming the incident on a miscarriage, and saying it was not serious and the media had lied. Since then, the incident is treated lightly, if not entirely forgotten.

  • Early Installment Weirdness: "Wild Child." Made during her brief time in which she had record deal with her former coach on The Voice Cee Lo Green, the song sounds overly poppy and mainstream, in great contrast to her usual hard-rock and Janis Joplin inspired sound.
  • Happily Married: In contrast to the strong theme of heartbreak and failed relationships in her music, she is happily married to Andy Biersack of American modern glam-rock band Black Veil Brides.
  • Human Notepad: The majority of her tattoos are quotes or inscriptions, including quotes from Romeo and Juliet, a Scientology quote, and her husband's name and nickname ("Andy" and "White Rabbit", respectively.)
  • Meaningful Name: A weird example. Sharing a name with a tragic Shakesperian heroine, Juliet has essentially done her best to make herself into a living homage of who she is named after. She has done numerous photoshoots with Romeo and Juliet as the theme, compares her relationship to Andy as a modern day Romeo and Juliet, and has several tattoos pertaining to the play.
    • It's worth noting that unlike her literary counterpart, she and her husband are still very much alive.
  • Mood Whiplash: The music video for "End of the World." Shows alternating shots of Juliet portraying a happy woman in a relationship and a woman in a dark room. Then mid-way through the video they begin to argue, which is immediatedly followed by the TearJerker plot twist where she is abruptly struck by a car and killed...in front of her boyfriend, whom she had just pushed out of the way. The dark room symbolizes her death, and as she belts out the remainder of the song there is blood streaming down her face while she sings, and then the shots alternate to her dead body in her boyfriend's arms while he's sobbing.
    • Made even more heartbreaking when you realize the man stepping in as her boyfriend is her real-life husband
  • Nobody Poops: Averted, real-life example. Never one to keep a squeaky-clean persona, Juliet Simms once infamously admitted to defecating in a paper bag on the Black Veil Brides tour bus during Warped Tour.
  • One-Woman Wail: Tends to do this during live performances.
  • Renaissance Woman: In addition to her singing career she plays multiple instruments, models, has done some acting, and is the founder/co-owner of her jewelry line "Never Take It Off," all to varying degrees of success.
  • Special Guest: Is this quite frequently for a variety of bands.
  • Starving Artist: She hasn't had much success with securing a record label. Her most recent album, All or Nothing, was funded with fan donations made through PledgeMusic. She also runs a Depop website in which she sells old merchandise from her tenure with Automatic Loveletter and as a solo artist, products inherited through partnerships such as her modeling with dollskill clothing, and clothing worn by her husband.
    • She was signed with her coach on The Voice, Cee Lo Green's record label for a very short time.
    • Also, it is rare to see her touring unless it is during Warped Tour.
  • Vocal Tag Team: "Not Broken Yet", from her All or Nothing EP, features a duet between herself and Andy Biersack.
    • During her run on The Voice, her vocal battles and her duet with Cee Lo also qualify as this.
    • Has also been featured on quite a few songs. She sings on "Remembering Sunday" by All Time Low, "Lost It All" by Black Veil Brides, "Lose It" by Cartel, "Take Me Home Tonight" by Every Avenue, "Theatre of Robots" by LoveHateHero, "Fix You" and "Hear Me Now" by SecondhandSerenade, and "I Dream About You" by Simple Plan.
    • She and her husband frequently do duets together during their sets on Warped Tour.
  • The Voice: Was a contestant (and placed second) on Season Two.
