Hot Mess is a song by Laura Marano and is set to be on her Untitled Debut Album.


The song was first discovered publicly when it was registered under Laura Marano as a songwriter on Broadcast Music, Inc. Marano then confirmed that the song would be on her album on April 9, 2016 after a fan on Twitter asked for her to reveal a song title from her album and she responded with "Hot Mess."[1] The song was first heard when a demo of the song was played at Marano's Meet & Greet event at the Big Machine store on June 11, 2016.[2] Unbeknownst to Marano, the demo was also played on Big Machine Radio the same day. From there a part of it was recorded and posted online along with a few other songs, "Can't Hold On Forever" and "Lala."[3] She tweeted fans on Twitter explaining that the songs were not done yet. Marano immediately had the recordings posted online taken down.




  • The song was written by Laura Marano, Jason Allen Dean, Joseph Davis Kirkland, and Anastasia Laura Whiteacre.[4]
