  • Shortly after seeing for the first time the shiny album cover containing an airbrushed photo of her, Clarkson blogged: "It's very colorful and they have definitely photo-shopped the crap out of me but I don't care haha! whoever she is, she looks great."
  • Kelly Clarkson told The Daily Mail February 27, 2009: "This has a soulful vibe, but it's also a throwback to old-school rock. That comes naturally to me, because I love Janis Joplin and Aerosmith."
  • This was written by Sam Watters (formerly of the band Color Me Badd), his songwriting partner Louis Biancaniello, and Dameon Aranda, the lead guitarist/vocalist of the band Aranda. The trio also penned "Whyyawannabringmedown" on All I Ever Wanted. In addition, Watters and Biancaniello produced "I Want You" and the bonus track "The Day We Fell Apart."
  • Clarkson told Pop Justice that she thinks this is the best song on All I Ever Wanted as "it's different to anything else on the radio right now."
