Meet Kim Petras, The First Transgender Pop Singer

By: Annika Harris / July 14, 2009

Kim Petras, a German teen whose name used to be Tim, says she always knew she was meant to be a girl. Her parents let her undergo genital reassignment surgery last year after she turned 16. Now she’s completely focused on her musical career, which might not last long if her song “Die for You” is any indication because it’s totes crappy. Hopefully, all this coverage she’s getting for being transgendered will get the attention of a top music producer who can help her develop a more unique and interesting sound. [Dlisted]
