    Honestly I always got the idea that this song was about playing with fire.

    Possibly involving herself with a dangerous male who is extremely manipulative and likes to play mind games. "Power and Control" says it all. But the tone almost sounds taunting - like she either got out of an emotionally abusive relationship and is recognizing it or is taunting a certain male that she knows has the potential to be controlling and manipulative.

    I think she's taunting her boyfriend, she is saying she has the power to break his heart. Even though he thinks he can break hers, he can't because she's a player (as she says in 'bubblegu bitch' and 'how to be a heartbreaker').
