You might’ve spotted Towa Bird shredding up guitar strings at Coachella or sharing her humour and life on TikTok. Regardless of how you found her, you need to know that she’s defied the odds — taking her talents from vertical screens in the pandemic to international stages, touring with the likes of Reneé Rapp and Olivia Rodrigo. Now, her debut album American Hero is out in the world.

As part of our POP or FLOP series, we had the opportunity to speak with Towa Bird about the album, her fashion opinions, and tour life. Let’s just say…she didn’t hold back (and earned extra style points in a Wynn Hamlyn Leather Jacket while doing it).

From the bed rotting trend to Kylie Minogue, we asked Towa Bird to declare a number of talked-about icons and pop culture moments, a POP or a FLOP. Here’s what she had to say.
