Because despite having solid lyrics, the song suffers from Katy singing like she's gargling a dick and being mauled to death at the same time. I only use the live versions tbh, especially MTV Unplugged.
Seriously, the way she sings "How do I get better once I've had the best" chills me to the bone. And not in a good way.
This is my favorite song of her, the song that most make me proud of her, one of the songs she write on her own on OOTB and ALSO... her best ballad!
Her voice is so raw in there, and Butch Walker's production it's heaven, such a classic ballad!
The timing of releasing was bad, she was just the bubblegum pop girl, and her stan base was minor comparing to today standard's.
It deserved to smash so hard, i really don't understand the general public, they say an artist it's generic for releasing just dance-pop songs, and when they release a slow jam, the public just doesn't care (i.e: Britney's Criminal)
And ALSO... in Katy's VEVO, the length of the video is exacly 420!
