Black Barbie

  • Lyrics
  • Imani Coppola explained this song to Digital Spy: "You know, I go the gym and I watch TV for an hour and it's always like four or five people: Paris Hilton, Nicole Richie, Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan and maybe one other. That song's just a sarcastic little 'f--k you!' I thought, 'I'm going to show you guys what you're doing but I'm going to be black doing it'. It's me living out their little puny fantasy of being famous for no reason: getting drunk, having an accident, flashing your p--sy, going to jail, finding God, getting pregnant, having a baby and then the world loves you again 'cause you're a nice mom! It's so f--king annoying! Do you guys have anyone like that?"
