Natalia Kills had a turbulent childhood: when her Jamaican father wasn't in jail, he was constantly moving from place to place with the singer's Uruguayan mother. This single deals with growing up in a destructive household. "I wanted a song that is the story of my whole life," Kills told Digital Spy. "From what I've read, I'm always seen as the bad girl; the bitchy, sassy, cute bad girl. I've just assumed that everyone must know where it comes from. To act like that, you can't just come from a good place. I realized that not even people who know me most know what I've gone through. I always put on a brave face when I was the most terrified, the most trapped and out of control. That's what 'Saturday Night' is like. I wanted to make a confession of everything I am and all the stuff I've been through."
"I left home at 15 to escape all the bulls--t," she added, "but I ran head first into much more trouble. I was taken away by the police for dangerous behaviour, being sedated, almost being committed and sectioned - it was trouble after trouble after trouble. 'Saturday Night' is the way I can present that important part of myself."
