Christina Grimmie told BILLBOARD: ”Tell My Mama’ is about a guy that I start liking in school, and he’s sort of a dangerous kid, and I am the type of girl that tells my mom about everything.
I’ve always wanted to involve something ‘fantasy-like’ in a video, like magic and powers. So it was awesome to have that be the focus of the video. The boy in the video is not a partier, a druggie, or anything like that. & He has flippin’ SUPER POWERS. Beat that.’
