The song seems to be a response to the negative attention that Cyrus consistently receives from the media and how the media and press surrounding her would suddenly become positive if she died.

Her near-death experience during a flight to Glastonbury Festival might be what triggered her to write about death, as she expressed on stage that the Festival had changed her in many ways:
