Multiple Parties Disect Mitski’s ‘Me and My Husband’

When Mitski released the song back in 2018, it was a hit. People were so into it that many started interpreting it in their own way. Among them, one review stood out the most.

The College Reporter stated the song described Mitski and her real-life husband’s passionate relationship. This phrase alone became a topic of trolling to Mitski’s fans.

Humorously, comments stating they were in fact Mitski’s husband followed.

Nevertheless, Mitski had already stated the true intention behind the song. When talking about the intention, she also revealed that she was not married.

The Singer Clears the Air

During a conversation with the saved by old times, she said the song is about, “You know what, this may not be love anymore, and I may be unhappy, and I’m going to die one day and this is just going to be my life,” later adding, “this is the decision I made, and you’re the person I chose, so I’m just going to stick with you. We have our problems, but this is our life and we’re going to live it.”

It was evident from the interview that Mitski didn’t have that much faith in love. She stated that it was difficult to stay in love and keep the spark.

Mitski had also said that when one got married and stayed with their partner for years, then it no longer became about infatuation or having one’s heart aflutter.

Since the singer wasn’t married, Mitski was asked if she was inspired by any particular couple, to which she said that it was a thing that would happen.

Another instance when her song was misinterpreted into something else was when fans heard the line “Your mother wouldn’t approve of how my mother raised me” from ‘Your Best American Girl,’ as a nod to her Japanese mom, the cultural friction of interracial dating in America.

However, the singer later clarified that she was not trying to send any type of message. She revealed that she was in love and loved somebody so much while also realizing that she could never be what would fit into their life.

She also stated that growing up, moving around, and being on tour, she did not allow herself to attach to anything because she knew that she would have to go away again.

Nevertheless, it is only up to Mitski if she ever decides to come forward and introduce her partner if she has any.
