BackgroundEdit

In 2012, Cyrus announced plans to focus on her film career, effectively putting her musical endeavors on hiatus. That year, she appeared in the films LOL and So Undercover. She was also confirmed as a primary voice actress in the feature film Hotel Transylvania, but dropped out of the project to coordinate a musical comeback. In January 2013, Cyrus ended her recording contract with Hollywood Records, under which she released the albums Hannah Montana 2: Meet Miley Cyrus (2007), Breakout (2008), Can't Be Tamed (2010), and EP The Time of Our Lives (2009). Later that month, she signed a recording contract with RCA Records. In March, she confirmed that her fourth studio album would be released by the end of 2013. The final product, Bangerz, was released in October 2013 and debuted at number one on the U.S. Billboard 200 with first-week sales of 270,000 copies.

Critical receptionEdit

Emily Longeratta of Hollywood Life gave the song a mixed review, saying "It contains a huge amount of abbreviations, but for some reason works." However, Jason Lipshutz of Billboard gave the song a negative review, criticizing French Montana's brief appearance, saying "French Montana's brief appearance... is just as inexplicable as the song itself."

LyricsEdit

Oh, you broke my heart
I told you I was weak for love
But then you went around
And did what you wanted to do
And now I'm crying, crying

Ooh, it seemed like everything was going fine
I found the love that I thought was gonna last
Then I accidentally saw a few things in your cell
I even LOL'd, man, I should've known
Why, why you're doing what you do
You, you might as well just tell the honest truth
See, I'm not really down with this
This ain't no texting shit
Know I got no biz,
But it is what it is

I don't really have much to say
I was over it the second that I saw her name

I got two, ooh, ooh letters for you
One of them's F and the other one's U
'Cause what you gotta do, is go get yourself a clue
Only two, ooh ooh letters to choose
One of them's F and the other one's U
SMH, I'm pressing send on you

Could've been this, could've been that
We done been there, we done been back
You ain't with it, could've said that
Why you tripping, let me hit that
I ain't trying to argue more.
I do it all for you,
You know you're my right eye
Baby, let me show you

Oh, I know what's been going on
Don't even try to act like Mr Super Nonchalant
What makes you think I'll stick around
I'm not as stupid as you sound
And you sound really dumb right now
From A to Z, ooh
I got a lot of nasty things flowing up in my head
But none of them are worth my time
You're not even worth this rhyme
And I don't, I don't give a flying

I don't really have much to say
I was over it the second that I saw her name

I got two, ooh, ooh letters for you
One of them's F and the other one's U
'Cause what you gotta do, is go get yourself a clue
Only two, ooh ooh letters to choose
One of them's F and the other one's U
SMH, I'm pressing send on you

Ooh, ooh, two letters for you, yeah, letters for you
What you trippin' on, huh?
Girl, you know you're wrong, huh?
Don't let these girls drive you crazy

I don't really have much to say
I was over it the second that I saw her name

I got two, ooh, ooh letters for you
One of them's F and the other one's U
'Cause what you gotta do, is go get yourself a clue
Only two, ooh ooh letters to choose
One of them's F and the other one's U
SMH, I'm pressing send on you
