Songfacts®:

  • Santigold told Spin magazine about this song concerning self acceptance. "I watch TV and all the Real Housewives and Kardashians shows are shocking to me," she explained. "It's upsetting. Everyone has plastic surgery. Everyone's fighting and trying to win the affection of some guy. But everyone's a freak, you know? I've never been in the mainstream with my style or choices. So I wanted to write a song about us all being freaks."
