DioGuardi discussed songwriting in an article she wrote for Billboard Magazine
. She said regarding the writing of "Good Girls Go Bad
": "Co-writing should be a great game of tennis. You want to be in the room with people who are better than you, always, so you learn. This may lead to unlikely collaborations, which can be the best. When I worked with Cobra Starship, they were a cool indie band and I was like a cheesy pop songwriter. In the beginning, [Gabe Saporta] couldn't get his head around it. And he was almost making fun of me, and I was like, 'OK, man. Yeah, you want to bring it on? Check this out.' And we wrote 'Good Girls Go Bad.'"
