Demi spoke about the song's message:
From the Album
"The pre-chorus says it best, where it says, 'You've had me underrated.' I've wanted to shout
that from the top of my lungs for years now. I have never been confident enough in my own skin to feel sexy.
Now that I'm feeling great and I feel confident, I'm proud of the skin that I'm in."
"I'm wanting to share that with the world and showing everyone how you can go from being very
insecure with body image issues to feeling so proud of your body that you want to show it to the world".
• She explained why she named her album after the song:
"Whenever I make an album and try to think of a name. I always look to the track list and what
song represents this album the most, and not only did it represent my entire album,
but it represented where I am in my life, so it was a very, very easy choice."

"I was so impressed by Demi's fearless performance as a guest star on my TV series From Dusk Till Dawn
that I jumped at the chance to direct her video. I basically treated this like we were shooting a
high octane action film, because she has the presence and star power to pull it off. She's incredible."
