Songfacts®:

  • Minaj discussed this boisterous hip-hop cut on a track-by-track on her website: "(The song) is a ball of cocky arrogant diva bitchy insanity! Sometimes u just wanna 'S--T on'em' lol. This arrogance comes only when u mix the cute ghetto girl with the queen of England."
  • The song's music video was directed by Young Money aficionado DJ Scoob Doo and is compiled of clips from the I Am Still Music Tour, backstage moments with Drake and Lil Wayne, and photo shoots from various magazines. Scoob told MTV News the plan all along was to shoot the clip in the rugged style seen in the clip. "It took me about a good two weeks to put all of the ideas that we had together. The good thing about the video is that we went in knowing we were gonna shoot the video onstage a few times. I was actually able to get my camera crew onstage," he shared.
  • The song features the lyric: "If you could turn back time, Cher/ You used to be here, now you're gone, Nair." One of Cher's fans tweeted the singer/actress to inform her that Nicky Minaj had "dissed" her on the track. Cher responded with a tweet of her own, writing, "Ive seen lots of people come & go! No biggie!" However, after one of Minaj's friends accused her of misunderstanding a rap metaphor, Cher deleted the anti-Minaj posts, admitting she was wrong, saying, "Someone said I was dissed ... I've been dissed b4, but instead of finding out ... I just got defensive! I should have known better! Dumb."
