"Backstabber" is a song performed by Ke$ha. It serves as the ninth track on Ke$ha's debut album, Animal.

BackgroundEdit

A very close friend of mine stole my car one night," Ke$ha says matter-of-factly. "The car is gone, and I was like, 'What a backstabber!' And then I found out that she was also talking shit, so I was like, 'What a shit-talker!' The next day, I had a writing appointment in Long Beach, California. I got there and I was like, 'We should write a song about this girl.' The line in the song is, 'Jeanie, why you gotta tell the secrets about my sex life?' I write how people would talk over a drink.

The music video for the song was shot around September 20, 2009. "Backstabber" was set to be the second single off of Animal but was scrapped in favor for "Blah Blah Blah". On September 9, 2011, internet blogger, Perez Hilton, leaked the video on his website. Shortly after the upload, the video was taken down after RCA forced the removal of it.

LyricsEdit

Back-Back-Backstabber
Back-Back-Backstabber
Back-Back-Backstabber

Bored stoned sittin' in your basement
All alone 'cause your little conversations
Got around and lookie what we all found out (lookie what what we found)
Lookie here we all found out that you have got a set of loose lips
Twistin' stories all because you're jealous
Now I know exactly what you're all about
This is what you're all about

Girl you're such a backstabber
Oh girl you're such a shit talker
And everybody knows it
Girl you're such a backstabber
Run your mouth more than anyone I've ever known
And everybody knows it
Back-Back-Backstabber (talk)

I'm sick and tired of hearing all about my life
From other people with all of your lies wrapped up so tight
So maybe you should shut your mouth
Shut your mouth you never shut your mouth
Honestly I think it's kinda funny
That you waste your breath talking about me
Got me feelin' kinda special really
This is what you're all about

Girl you're such a backstabber
Oh girl you're such a shit talker
And everybody knows it
Girl you're such a backstabber
Run your mouth more than anyone I've ever known
And everybody knows it

Katie's to my left rippin' my style
Damn Jeanie why you gotta tell the secrets 'bout my sex life
All I ever did was drive your broke ass around
Pick you up take you out when your car broke down
Back-Back-Backstabber, stabber
Back-Back-Backstabber

Girl you're such a backstabber
Oh girl you're such a shit talker
And everybody knows it
Girl you're such a backstabber
Taking and twisting and telling so manipulating
Run your mouth more than anyone I've ever known
And everybody knows it
Taking and twisting and telling so manipulating
Oh girl you're lookin' like a lunatic
Everybody knows it
Everybody knows
Yeah you're lookin' like a lunatic
And everybody knows
Yeah everybody knows
