Back in 2018, Williams announced that the track had been axed from her band’s live shows amid the continuing debate over whether or not its message was “anti-feminist”. This was on account of one specific line within the second verse: “Once a whore, you’re nothing more, I’m sorry that’ll never change.”
Before enjoying ‘Misery Business’ one final time, Williams defined: “This is a choice that we’ve made because we feel that we should. We feel like it’s time to move away from it for a little while.”
“One of my biggest healing moments was realising that a lot of my depression was misplaced anger. I really forced it inward, on myself, and it made me feel shame all the time,” she informed The Guardian.
But she mentioned over time she was in a position to channel her anger and use it as a recognition of self-worth. “It helped me understand things that happened throughout my life that weren’t right.”
