Natalia Noemi "Teddy" Sinclair (née Cappuccini, born 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.
- Womannequin (EP) (2008)
- Perfectionist (2011)
- Trouble (2013)
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 Im ruining your stuff variety.
- Driven to Suicide: Devils Dont 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 isnt 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 cant have you, then no one can.
- I Have Many Names: Her birth name is Natalia Noemi Keery-Fisher, and shes 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 doesnt want to break her new fiancés heart, so obviously the only thing to do is
- 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 mirrors 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. Theres a song called Perfection on the album Perfectionist, but the title of the album isnt properly dropped until Free.
