Of the track, Mckenna states,“I wrote this song after I went to this Hollywood party with a bunch of celebrities and felt completely out of place. I didn’t know it was more of a black tie type of party and I showed up in my Taylor Swift cardigan with a bright lime green slimer purse. It was humiliating. All of these older, cool girls that I look up to were laughing and running around together and I was literally in the corner hiding out and feeling like a clown. That feeling of mediocracy and not being able to quiet that constant voice in my head that repeats my worst insecurities and feelings over and over and over. I know I’m always an advocate of saying that you should be who you are and love yourself, but it’s easier said than done and some days it’s just really hard!”
