I know that you see me, time's gone by
Spent my whole life runnin' from your flashin' lights
Try to own it, but I'm alright
You can't take my soul without a fuckin' fight
Really enjoying Popular... If the song is about a young woman selling her soul to find fame... M's verse can be read as a response, both from the perspective of a female star already having achieved popularity ("Spent my whole life...") and of someone who still has the ambition to remain popular ("You can't take my soul without a fuckin' fight"). Which tracks, for the best selling female pop star of all time about to embark on a greatest hits tour but also entering the Spotify top 10 as we speak. Her mind.
