The socialite Paris Hilton was big news at the time, and speculation was that this song was about her. Hilton rose to fame after appearing in a 2003 sex video with her boyfriend Rick Salomon which was leaked on the Internet and released as 1 Night In Paris

, however, he denied the Hilton connection and said it was not about anyone specific. Said Todd: "It's just about a girl who's good in bed but a terrible girlfriend."
In the April 2007 issue of Esquire
magazine, Chuck Klosterman pointed out that while the Gnarls Barkley song "Crazy
" was lauded by many critics as the best song of 2006, Buckcherry's "Crazy Bitch" was immensely popular that year at strip clubs, among people who drive with their windows down, and with kids who won't turn off their ringtones during movies. He points out that you can tell a lot about a person by which song they prefer. If you go for this song, Klosterman says, "You have been sonically and culturally emancipated: You will never have to read another album review for the rest of your life. You don't need criticism, because the things you like don't require explanation. You're free. You're crazy, but you like the way it f--ks you."
