Songfacts®:

  • Gym Class Heroes MC Travie McCoy drops a verse on this track.
  • On her record label's website, Simpson explained that with this track she hadn't gone 'Gangsta': "No, it isn't serious, based on a true story or a threat. It's a metaphor about a girl who can get away with murder because of who she is. The lyrics should be followed by an exaggerated evil laugh."
