周一水果姐接受KISS FM The Thinkergirls采访,向两位主持Stacey June 和Kristy Mercer说这是一首关于赋予女性权利的歌曲。

Katy was driven to divulge the meaning behind the song and accompanying clip after Stacey gave her interpretation to the singer.
主持人Stacey把自己的理解告诉水果姐后,水果姐开始说出歌曲和MV片段背后的隐含意义。

'For me, I found that we're not pieces of meat,' Stacey said. 'You can chop us up and eat us all you want but we're not food for your pleasure.'[/en

[en]Agreeing with the host's assessment, Katy said the song was about women being in control.

水果姐同意主持人的说法,接着表示这首歌就是关于女性权利。

The song, a collaboration with hip hop trio Migos features such lyrics as: 'I'm on the menu, baby,' and 'got me spread like a buffet.'
这首歌还有嘻哈三人组Migos的参与,比如歌词“我在菜单里,宝贝”和“琳琅陈列自己,如豪华自助餐”。

Katy said that while 'posing a question' in song was a fringe benefit of her work, for her it was more about creating a feeling of 'escapism' in the audience.
水果姐说在歌中“提出问题”仅是她工作的附加福利,对她而言更多的是在听众中创造一种“逃避现实”的感觉。

'It's not my job to preach at a person or tell them what they should think,' she said.
她说:“说教或告诉人们应该怎么想不是我的工作。”

'It's nice, though, if I can pose a question or broaden a perspective - I just have to reflect sometimes what's going on in the world a little bit, but also make some escapism music.'
“当然,如果我能提出问题或是扩大视角也是非常好的,我有时候必须反思一下世界上发生的事情,同时又做一些逃避现实类型的音乐。”
