Sorry Not Sorry - Demi Lovato




The Experience: Being so bad got me feelin' so good, showing you up like I knew that I would... The relationship hasn't ended for her. She's still wallowing in the hate...


Music video: Demi Lovato aims to make her ex jealous, flaunting herself during a house party. But the goal is hurt not heal. She doesn't want him back, she just wants to twist the knife.

The Meaning of Sorry Not Sorry: The love is gone, but revenge - payback - is just as sweet - it'd be nice of me to take it easy on ya, but nah. Sorry Not Sorry explores the feeling of embracing the hurtful feeling of revenge - now payback is a bad b-tch and baby, I'm the baddest. He comes to her begging... and she relishes the opportunity to reject him again - feelin' like a 10, the best I ever been and yeah, I know how bad it must hurt to see me like this, but it gets worseBeing so bad got me feelin' so good showing you up like I knew that I wouldthat's a real emotion. The downside? It's an emotion that burns you out and leaves emptiness in its wake. And that's a truth that Sorry Not Sorry neglects to mention.

Ask yourself: Do negative emotions fill a void, without the need to truly heal?

Album: Tell Me You Love Me (2017)

LYRICS:

Payback is a bad b-tch
And baby, I'm the baddest

Now I'm out here looking like revenge
Feelin' like a 10, the best I ever been
And yeah, I know how bad it must hurt
To see me like this, but it gets worse (wait a minute)
Now you're out here looking like regret
Ain't too proud to beg, second chance you'll never get
And yeah, I know how bad it must hurt to see me like this
But it gets worse (wait a minute)

Now payback is a bad b-tch
And baby, I'm the baddest
You're f-ckin' with a savage
Can't have this, can't have this (ah)
And it'd be nice of me to take it easy on ya, but nah

Baby, I'm sorry (I'm not sorry)
Baby, I'm sorry (I'm not sorry)
Being so bad got me feelin' so good
Showing you up like I knew that I would
Baby, I'm sorry (I'm not sorry)
Baby, I'm sorry (I'm not sorry)
Feeling inspired 'cause the tables have turned
Yeah, I'm on fire and I know that it burns

Baby, fineness is the way to kill
Tell me how it feel, bet it's such a bitter pill
And yeah, I know you thought you had bigger, better things
Bet right now this stings (wait a minute)
'Cause the grass is greener under me
Bright as technicolor, I can tell that you can see
And yeah, I know how bad it must hurt to see me like this
But it gets worse (wait a minute)

Now payback is a bad b-tch
And baby, I'm the baddest
You fuckin' with a savage
Can't have this, can't have this (ah)
And it'd be nice of me to take it easy on ya, but nah

Baby, I'm sorry (I'm not sorry)
Baby, I'm sorry (I'm not sorry)
Being so bad got me feelin' so good
Showing you up like I knew that I would
Baby, I'm sorry (I'm not sorry)
Baby, I'm sorry (I'm not sorry)
Feeling inspired 'cause the tables have turned
Yeah, I'm on fire and I know that it burns

Talk that talk, baby
Better walk, better walk that walk, baby
If you talk, if you talk that talk, baby
Better walk, better walk that walk, baby
Oh yeah
Talk that talk, baby
Better walk, better walk that walk, baby
If you talk, if you talk that talk, baby
Better walk, better walk that walk, baby

Baby, I'm sorry (I'm not sorry)
Baby, I'm sorry (I'm not sorry)
Being so bad got me feelin' so good
Showing you up like I knew that I would
Baby, I'm sorry (I'm not sorry)
Baby, I'm sorry (I'm not sorry)
Feeling inspired 'cause the tables have turned
Yeah, I'm on fire and I know that it burns

Payback is a bad b-tch
And baby, I'm the baddest
I'm the baddest, I'm the baddest
