Songfacts®:

  • Frontwoman Beth Ditto told Dazed and Confused magazine that this song is, "about gay men in love with each other. Love is a huge running theme on the album."
  • Ditto expanded on the song to the NME June 27, 2009: "So many people have asked me about Katy Perry and 'I Kissed a Girl,' but the positive side of that song is that these little girls are dancing around their bedroom singing' I kissed a girl.' So I thought what would be really cool is the idea of little boys dancing to 'Men in Love' with each other."
