by Pink

Album: The Truth About Love (2012)

Songfacts®:

  • Pink wrote this ode to the morning after with Greg Kurstin. She sings of waking up in a stranger's house "wearing last night's dress… like a hot-ass mess." This was one of five collaborations with the Californian producer on The Truth About Love, including the lead single, "Blow Me (One Last Kiss)."
  • Pink told Glamour magazine that with songs like this one and "Slut Like You," she's taking the power of the word "slut" back as well as the sexual freedom it denotes. "I've always had an issue with [the idea that]: 'OK, we've both decided to do this," she said. "Why am I a slut and you're the player? You didn't get anything from me that I didn't get from you.'"
