life is weird and my eyes are always looking in slightly different directions
"It’s funny because the idea for the song [Primadonna] just came from the title, and for me, before I even wrote it, I just felt like it would be a really important song for me. Who knows what the outcome of all this will be, but I felt it would really change my career direction, and that the idea was something I could bottle and encapsulate everything I am. I love having a campy, theatrical quality to my music—I think I did have it on the first album, but I didn’t really know how to articulate it, and so I thought this song would be a good way to get that across. That’s kinda where the thoughts came from, and the fact that my ex-boyfriend used to call me a prima donna. I wrote the song with Dr. Luke, and it just fit together really perfectly. I think it’s one of the most important songs I’ve written in a long time, but that’s the beauty of pop—it’s much harder to write a simple song."
