TORI KELLY - Unbreakable Smile

This song is from the album Unbreakable Smile(2015), released on Jun 23, 2015.
I loved the way that she sang the lines. The rhythm felt amazing, the chords were loopy, but interesting and the background vocals provided a huge support for the vocals. The lyrics were really interesting, but I don't know who she is talking about. Is it Nicki? What do you think?

[INTRO] C#7 Abm7 C#7 Abm7
[VERSE]
C#7                 Abm7
La da da da dee, you're not breaking me
C#7                   Abm7
La de da da da da da da da, yeah

[VERSE]
C#7
Somebody told me fame is a disease
      Abm7
You start singing the blues when you start seeing the green
     C#7
But I think it's all about what you choose
      Abm7
The way you live your life, depends on you
            C#7
That's when I realized I wanna make a difference
               Abm7
Change other people's lives, give hope, even for a moment
        C#7                          Abm7
Use my name for good and change the game I could
            C#7
Because to make it you think I gotta act a certain way,
       Abm7
Be a little bit insane, live a little, it's okay
     C#7                                    Abm7
I guess we have different definitions of living, 
Abm7
But you'll twist my words anyway
       C#7
You'll say that I'm naive, like I don't have a past,
          Abm7
You're the one being deceived, I see right behind the mask
          C#7
Tryna to stir me up and get me mad
                   Abm7
I smile because happiness is all I have, so

[CHORUS]
            C#7   Abm7
La da da da dee, you're not breaking me
  C#7             Abm7
La de da da da, ain't got time for ya, singing
C#7               Abm7
La da da da dee, you won't shatter me
C#7                       Abm7
La de da da da, got an unbreakable smile

[VERSE]
C#7                        Abm7
You see me hanging with my fam, 
                           C#7
But that don't mean I'm living in a bubble
                  Abm7
You'll find me at church, 
Abm7
But that don't mean I can't cause trouble
C#7
Stir up a little scene 'cause isn't that what you want?
    Abm7
For me to mess up, so you can dress up some story
C#7
Saying, Tori this'll sell more records
       Abm7
But I'd rather make 'em yawn than be a pawn on your chessboard
C#7
So call me boring, call me cookie cutter
C#7               Abm7
Call me what you want
Abm7
A matter of fact
Abm7
Just say it loud and don't st-stutter
C#7
'Cause I know who I am, yeah I'm still the same
Abm7
Just a California girl with big dreams
            C#7
Thinking maybe they'll let me sing songs about real things
      Abm7
And baby who knows maybe I can sell out shows 
C#7
Without taking off my clothes
             Abm7
God made me sexy I don't care if only I know

[CHORUS]
            C#7   Abm7
La da da da dee, you're not breaking me
  C#7             Abm7
La de da da da, ain't got time for ya, singing
C#7               Abm7
La da da da dee, you won't shatter me
C#7                       Abm7
La de da da da, got an unbreakable smile

[BRIDGE] C#7


[CHORUS]
            C#7   Abm7
La da da da dee, you're not breaking me
  C#7             Abm7
La de da da da, ain't got time for ya, singing
C#7               Abm7
La da da da dee, you won't shatter me
C#7                       Abm7
La de da da da, got an unbreakable smile
[INSTRUMENTAL] C#7 Abm x2
             C#7
I might be smiling, yes
     Abm7                        C#7   Abm7
But don't mistake kindness from weakness
[INSTRUMENTAL] C#7 Abm x2
