The Observer Music Magazine December 2008 asked whether the lazy lover in this song is about any specific person. Allen replied naughtily: "The person in question, is far too arrogant to even consider that it might be about him. It would not even cross his mind for a second. He's heard it, I've played it to him. And he had no idea. Didn't even ask."
On August 27, 2009, thelondonpaper - a freesheet published in the capital - featured a dyed blonde Lily Allen who told Tom Chivers that she wished she'd never written this song because "the sex-based single intimidates men". Allen was quoted thus: "The thought never occurred to me it would scare men. But guys are like 'Whoa, no, I'm not sleeping with you in case you write something about it'."
