"And I’m going straight to hell
And I’ve got a lot of friends there
And if I see that bitch in hell
I’m gonna shoot him in the head again
Cause I wanna see him die
Over and over and over …"

"Turn up the radio, Turn up the radio
There’s somethings you don’t need to know
Just let me turn up the radio"
"Everyone probably thinks that I’m a raving nymphomaniac, that I have an insatiable sexual appetite, when the truth is I’d rather read a book."
Madonna told CNN news anchor Anderson Cooper that she roped in Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. as she liked their originality. “I’m a fan of their music but also I like their independence, their spirit,” she said. “They’re cheeky and unique and they have individual voices.”
Lyrically the song finds Madonna warning a potential lover that he needs to be straight with her as she’s “a different kind of girl” who won’t be mucked around. All three singers fit the bill as strong women who know what they want.
"I’m stuck like a moth to a flame
I’m so tired of playing this game
I don’t know how I got to this state
Let me out of my cage cause I’m dying
Turn up the radio…"
