This song attacks rich men who try to use their wealth to exploit or use women who don't have money. She's saying she'd rather be poor than be used.

She isn't impressed by guys who try to impress her with money or superficial things. She just wants a good time, it doesn't have to be fancy.

This song is hatin' at men who try to impress women with superficial things: their money, possessions, and social status. "I don't need you or your brand new Benz or your bourgie ("marked by a concern for material interest"-Websters) friends. I don't need love lookin' like diamonds, lookin like diamonds."In contrast, the singer wants to party in her basement with her friends and her man. She confesses to, rather than buying expensive alcohol, bringing her own, or taking the unfinished bottles wealthier people leave behind. Under the grease smear of proclamations that just work to maintain her dirty, party-girl image ("keep it sleazy"), this is about appreciating what is real vs the superficial.
A side note: it occurred to me that the booming bass-line sounded familiar...kind of like the one heard in "Drop it like it's hot" by Snoop Dogg (2004). Coincidentally (or not??), I think of SD as a prime example of someone who, nowadays anyway, tries to impress women with his money, status, and possessions. Also, the song's lyrics "rat-tat-tat-tat on your dumb dumb drum. A beat so fat gonna make me come [...] over to your place" is vaguely reminiscent of Snoop Dogg's collaboration with Dr. Dre in a song called "Rat-tat-tat-tat." The phrase is also used in various other songs by the two aforementioned artists. So, is this a sideways slam aimed at Snoop Dogg? Hmmm...
