About Marilyn Monroe

"Marilyn Monroe" is a song by American rapper and singer Nicki Minaj. The song was written by Minaj, Daniel James, Leah Haywood, Ross Golan and J. R. Rotem, while production was handled by J. R. Rotem and Dreamlab. Musically, "Marilyn Monroe" is an introspective mid-tempo ballad that contains an upbeat piano, synth beats, and features influences of bubblegum pop. Lyrically, the song alludes to oneself questioning the status of their relationship. The song makes frequent references to pop icon Marilyn Monroe, with many of her quotes woven into the song. "Marilyn Monroe" was generally well received by music critics, with some noting its crossover potential, while others felt like the song was too similar to other artists. The song has received comparisons to the 2011 singles "Disaster" by JoJo and "Stuttering" by Fefe Dobson, as well as Minaj's own 2010 single "Your Love" from her debut album Pink Friday. The album's high digital sales led "Marilyn Monroe" to chart on the UK Singles Chart and US Billboard charts.

I can be selfish
Yeah, so impatient
Sometimes I feel like Marilyn Monroe
I’m insecure, yeah I make mistakes
Sometimes I feel like I’m at the end of the road

I can get low I can get low
Don’t know which way is up
Yeah I can get high, I can get high
Like I could never come down

Call it a curse
Or just call me blessed
If you can’t handle my worst
You ain’t getting my best
Is this how Marilyn Monroe felt? (felt felt felt)
Must be how Marilyn Monroe felt (felt felt felt)

Its like all the good things
They fall apart like,
Like Marilyn Monroe
Truth is we mess up
Till we get it right
I don’t want to end up losing my soul

I can get low I can get low
Don’t know which way is up
Yeah I can get high, I can get high
Like I could never come down

Call it a curse
Or just call me blessed
If you can’t handle my worst
You ain’t getting my best
Is this how Marilyn Monroe felt? (felt felt felt)
Must be how Marilyn Monroe felt (felt felt felt)

Take me or leave me
I’ll never be perfect
Believe me, I’m worth it
So take me or leave me! (So take me or leave me)
So take me or leave me! (So take me or leave me)

Call it a curse
Or just call me blessed
If you can’t handle my worst
You ain’t getting my best
Is this how Marilyn Monroe felt? (felt felt felt)
Must be how Marilyn Monroe felt (felt felt felt)
Is this how Marilyn Monroe felt? (felt felt felt)
Must be how Marilyn Monroe felt (felt felt felt)
