Teddy Natalia Noemi Sinclair (born Natalia Noemi Cappuccini, 15 August 1986), better known as Natalia Kills, and formerly known as Natalia Keery-Fisher, is an English pop singer. After the label that released her first single went out of business, her self-produced EP Womannequin caught the attention of will.i.am, who signed her to his label. She released two full albums, Perfectionist (2011) and Trouble (2014), before forming a band called Cruel Youth with her husband Willy Moon. Needs a Better Description.

Her music contains examples of the following tropes:

  • Alice Allusion: Both “Wonderland” on her first album and “Rabbit Hole” on her second.
  • Anti-Love Song: “Break You Hard”.
  • Break Up Song: “Acid Annie”, of the ‘you cheated on me so I’m ruining your stuff’ variety.
  • Driven to Suicide: “Devils Don’t Fly”. Also mentioned, though not carried out, in “Marlboro Lights”.
  • Fractured Fairy Tale: The entire point of the song “Wonderland” (oddly enough, given that Alice in Wonderland isn’t a fairytale. Everything else namedropped in the song is, though.)
  • If I Can't Have You...: Stated word for word in “Watching You”.
    No, no, no, this was not the plan,
    If I can’t have you, then no one can.
  • I Have Many Names: Her birth name is Natalia Noemi Keery-Fisher, and she’s released music under the names Candy Rapper, Verbalicious, Natalia Cappuccini, Verse, Natalia Kills, and Teddy Sinclair.

  • Insane Troll Logic: In “Kill My Boyfriend”, for humorous purposes. She wants to be with her ex, but she doesn’t want to break her new fiancé’s heart, so obviously the only thing to do is… murder him.
  • Intercourse with You: “Problem”, “Mirrors”, and parts of “Rabbit Hole”. Kills likes this trope.
  • Mafia Princess: A recurring theme in her second album, Trouble, which is reportedly autobiographical. Especially prominent in "Daddy's Girl" and "Saturday Night".
  • Murder the Hypotenuse: Unusually, carried out by the cathetus of the triangle in “Kill My Boyfriend”.
  • Obligatory Bondage Song: “Mirrors”.
    Turning the lights out, tighten the handcuffs,
    And the mirror’s gonna fog tonight.
  • Phrase Salad Lyrics: “Controversy”, bordering on List Song.
  • Title-Only Chorus: “Controversy”, though it has a more complex pre-chorus.

  • Title Track: “Trouble” on her second album. There’s a song called “Perfection” on the album Perfectionist, but the title of the album isn’t properly dropped until “Free”.
