Madonna has a new Material Girl. The icon named 19-year-old girl singer Pia Mia as the Fashion Director of her teen-focused clothing line, and if you’re not one of the 4 million people who follow the Guam native on Instagram, you’re about to get a crash course on the star.
Much like Justin Bieber, Pia got her start on YouTube and quickly became known for not only her voice, but her unapologetic style which she expresses daily her social media channels.
“I am excited to announce Pia Mia as the Fashion Director of Material Girl,” Madonna said in a statement. “Her creativity, confidence and unique sense of style make her a perfect addition to the brand.”
The pop star, who has been singing since she was 8 years old, recently toured with Jason Derulo. Her hit single “Do It Again,” a collaboration with Chris Brown and Tyga, has over 208 million views on YouTube.
When I sit down with Pia, she immediately offers me a Flamin’ Hot Cheetos from a clear jar she’s toting around with her. She’s just back from a meeting at Material Girl’s N.Y.C. headquarters where they provided all her favorite snacks. (She says she never travels without her Cheetos.) In our 10 minutes together, she tells me about her Madonna honor, sings for me, shows me her grills and reveals she’s yet to get her hands on a Kylie Jenner lip kit (a surprising fact since she used to be a regular in King Kylie’s Snapchat stories.)
