French-American songstress Ariane continues her perpetual endeavor to champion the underdog in her “Fake Generation.” The rising pop powerhouse reflects on peer pressure and a seemingly endless desire for materialistic things in her newest anthem. It’s no secret that social media plays a large hand in how a young generation sees the world, and Ariane is here to remind them to stay true to who they really are, and not how the internet wants them to be.

“I’ve spent so much time scrolling through Instagram feeling incompetent. There was definitely a time where I tried to keep up, trying to seem ‘perfect’ on social platforms but it’s exhausting, miserable and a flat out lie,” she says. “I get bloated sometimes, I’m not vacationing every weekend and partying with stars. Isn’t it tiring to keep up appearances? Let’s be real for a change.” – Ariane
