EXCLUSIVE: MACEDO Shares ‘Girlboss’ Behind-The-Scenes Secrets + More!


Popmaniacs — we recently caught up with the coolest new band that needs to be on your radar. MACEDO is made up of twin sisters Melissa and Michelle. The babes recently chatted with us about everything from their new single “Ghost Town,” what it’s like making music with your sister *and* their acting role on the brand new Netflix series Girlboss. Ready for the best part? We’re sharing everything with you! Check it out here:

Popmania: You guys are in the new Netflix show Girlboss, tell us about that!
MACEDO: We had so much fun working on Girlboss! We play a band in the show and we are a band in real life so that came pretty naturally. Everyone in the band was so much fun to work with. We are in three episodes and we were so happy to come back after the pilot. It’s such a badass show about female empowerment and that is what we are all about. It really is a dream project for us. The cast and crew were really incredible to work with.

Popmania: Tell us about your characters!
MACEDO: We play a band on the show called “Animated Discussion.” We are the lead singers/guitarists of the band and Johnny Simmons (Shane) is our drummer. Mostly, we are playing music in the show but we get a few really fun scenes. We don’t want to give away too much!

Popmania: Any spoilers you can give us about Season 1?
MACEDO: Let’s just say you should definitely watch until the end, there is a special moment in the finale! Stay tuned throughout the whole season. It’s a perfect binge watching show.

Popmania: What are you most excited for fans to see in this series?
MACEDO: We love the message of the show, which is that a woman can be whatever she wants to be. She can carve her own path in this world and doesn’t have to apologize for it. She can be messy and vulnerable yet still succeed because of her resilience. That is basically our whole belief system so it works!

Popmania: Is there a fun fact about the show that fans might be surprised to find out?
MACEDO: We geeked out because we got to film at the iconic recording studios Sunset Sound. It was a dream come true, other artists who have recorded there include Bing Crosby, Miles Davis, Janis Joplin, The Rolling Stones, John Lennon, Carole King, Elton John, Prince, and Michael Jackson among many others. We were in good company!
