This song is from American pop music artist Miley Cyrus' third studio album, Can't Be Tamed. The Hannah Montana star conceived the tune in December 2009 in London, while traveling on the Wonder World Tour. The lyrics are about the desire of not living up to "the form and the machine everyone thinks you should be."
Prior to the release of Can't Be Tamed, the former Hannah Montana star told MTV News that she's a completely different person to when she released 2008's Breakout. Miley said: "I'm much more confident. You know, I've always been a confident person, but I was going through a lot then. I was younger, and I didn't really know myself." She added, "There's so many people in your life telling you who you should and shouldn't be. And that's what Tamed [is] about. It's about being who you are to the fullest. And now I know who that is." This song is one of the Tamed tracks that Miley thinks best fits that development. "It's about not letting people tell you who you shouldn't and should be," she said. "And [it's] about people that try to tell you: 'This is what you need to sell.' 'Look relatable.' It's like, 'I am relatable.'"
