5 Songs That Are Secretly (Definitely) About Periods

Sure, these lyrics may not be explicitly about sore wombs and blood flow, but we’re onto you pop stars. We’re onto you…

Emeli Sandé, Hurts. Aka that day when her cramps tried to kill her.

“Baby, I’m not made of stone, it hurts, when all that’s left to do is watch it burn. Oh baby, I’m not made of stone, it hurts.”

 Taylor Swift, Bad Blood. Aka when her flow got heavy AF.

“‘Cause baby now we got bad blood, you know it used to be mad love. So take a look at what you’ve done, ’cause baby now we got bad blood.”

Bad Blood

Leona Lewis, Bleeding Love. Aka when she was five days into her period, still on super tampons and thought she might be anemic.

“Keep bleeding, keep, keep bleeding love. I keep bleeding, I keep, keep bleeding love. Keep bleeding, keep, keep bleeding love.”

super tampons

Miley Cyrus, Wrecking Ball. Aka when her period turned up totally unannounced with its best friend PMS.

“I came in like a wrecking ball, I never hit so hard in love. All I wanted was to break your walls, all you ever did was wreck me. Yeah, you wreck me.”

Meredith Brooks, Bitch. Aka when her mood swings were on top form and she played so many different characters she deserved an Oscar.

“I’m a bitch, I’m a lover, I’m a child, I’m a mother, I’m a sinner, I’m a saint, I do not feel ashamed. I’m your hell, I’m your dream, I’m nothing in between, you know you wouldn’t want it any other way.”
