Del Rey wrote this song about a woman using her feminine wiles to progress in her career in part as a response to another popular female artist who'd said derogatory things about her in the press. She told Grazia: "It's about a singer who sneered about my allegedly not authentic style but later she stole and copied it. And now she's acting like I am the art project and she's the true super artist."
Lana Del Rey alludes on this song to people who believe she used more than just her talent and charm to advance her career. "You know, I have slept with a lot of guys in the industry, but none of them helped me get my record deals," she told Complex magazine. "Which is annoying."
