Former American Idol contestant Catie Turner is back with a new song, and it’s an emotional one. The track is called “God Must Hate Me,” and Turner delves into some deep feelings that a lot of fans can relate to.


Turner captured America’s hearts when she competed on Season 16 of the talent show, charming the judges with her quirky style. She made it to the Top 7 before being eliminated.

Catie Turner Releases New Song ‘God Must Hate Me’

“Do you ever see someone and think, ‘Wow, God must hate me’?” Turner sings to start the brutally honest new song. “‘Cause he spent so much time on them, and for me he got lazy.” Later, she sings that she “can’t hold myself responsible, so I’ll blame the metaphysical.”

Turner teased the song on TikTok earlier this month, writing, “The never ending fear of what if I’m not pretty enough to make it in music.” According to Broadway World, Turner called this “the most vulnerable song” she’s ever released. It definitely shows in her vocals.


Turner added that the track is “about those times where the feelings are so omnipotent, you really start to believe it. That you were made wrong. That you’re not good enough. And, that maybe, a higher power being angry with you is a pill easier to swallow than personal responsibility.”

“God Must Hate Me” expressed what a lot of Turner’s fans have felt in their own lives. The singer reacted to the fan response on Twitter, writing that it’s “cathartic and beautifully heartbreaking all at the same time.” She thanked fans “for trusting me [with your] experiences.”


Turner also wrote that some fans have shared “their experience being trans and how they feel like god forgot some parts.” The 21-year-old said this “made me bawl for a solid twenty minutes,” adding that she wants to give everyone a hug.

Since her time on American Idol in 2018, Turner has put out several singles, including the original song “21st Century Machine,” which she performed on the show. She also released an EP called The Sad Vegan in 2019.
