Tuesday night’s episode of “The Tonight Show” included more than Louis Tomlinson’s U.S. televised solo debut. Host Jimmy Fallon also featured a segment called “Behind The Lyrics,” which finally provided fans with answers about the meaning of their favorite songs. DNCE clarified, jokingly, that “Cake By The Ocean” isn’t actually about sex at all. “It’s actually quite dark,” Joe Jonas says. “‘Cake By The Ocean,’ cake, frosting, icing, ice, iceberg, ocean. It’s about the Titanic.”
Hailee Steinfeld also came clean about what inspired the lyrics to “Starving,” her latest hit featuring Zedd and Grey. “There’s a line in ‘Starving’ that goes, ‘The more that I know you, the more I want to.’ I was really struggling to stay away from a relationship that wasn’t so great for me,” she says. “It was with The Cheesecake Factory.”
Hailee goes on to expand on that toxic relationship. “Have you seen their menus,” she scoffs. “They’re like phonebooks. How do you say no to that?” Hopefully Hailee can find another restaurant chain to inspire her to finish the album she’s been promising.
