Lola Blanc is the stage name of Kandice Melonakos, an American singer-songwriter, director and actress. She began her life in showbusiness as a child ventriloquist in her native Michigan before moving to Los Angeles to pursue her music career. She has contributed lyrics to Britney Spears' single "Oh La La" and appeared in music videos for artists such as LMFAO. Lola's own songs can be described as a combination of alternative indie pop and Dark Cabaret. As an actress, she has appeared in American Horror Story: Hotel and Life in Pieces and had a small role in Under the Silver Lake. Lola has also written, directed and acted in several short films and is the co-host of a podcast called Trust Me: Cults, Extreme Belief, and the Abuse of Power. The podcast grew in part out of her childhood experience with a cult leader.


  • Hot Witch: The music video for her song "The Magic" invokes this trope by casting Lola as part of a coven of young and attractive witches.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: The music video for her song "Don't Say You Do" ends with cannibalistic imagery at a fancy dress dinner party.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Lola's videos often feature her wearing revealing outfits. "Don't Say You Do" shows her in a bathtub wearing only a string of pearls and has her lying naked on a dining table with her back to the camera.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Her song "Here Come the Wolves" is about Lola's struggle with the concept of justice. The accompanying video has her killing her captors only to appear shocked and horrified at what she has done.
