"Queen of Mean" is a song sung by Audrey in the film, Descendants 3. It expresses her jealousy over Mal becoming the Queen of Auradon instead of her, and her desire for revenge. She steals Maleficent's Staff and the queen's crown from the museum, transforming herself into the Queen of Mean.

Story

Audrey sadly draws a picture of herself as queen of Auradon, but soon seethes with a jealous rage that Ben chose Mal; furious over the fact that Ben genuinely desired the end of their relationship, with the love spell being a convenient excuse. Even her Grammy's disappointment in her losing a chance at the throne rings in her head. Listening to the devil on her shoulder, Audrey decided to become the queen of the villains. She breaks into the museum for the queen's crown, finding herself drawn to Maleficent's scepter in the next room. Using its magic, she transforms herself into a more villainous look, declaring that she will get what she deserves.

Lyrics

I'm so tired of pretending
Where's my happy ending?

I followed all the rules
I drew inside the lines
I never asked for anything that wasn't mine
I waited patiently for my time
But when it finally came
He called her name
And now I feel this overwhelming pain
I mean, it's in my veins
I mean, it's in my brain
My thoughts are running in a circle like a toy train
I'm kinda like a perfect picture with a broken frame
I know exactly who to blame

I never thought of myself as mean
I always thought that I'd be the Queen
And there's no in-between
Cause if I can't have that
Then I will be the leader of the dark
And the bad
Now there's a devil on my shoulder
Where the angels used to be
And he's calling me the Queen

Being nice was my past time
But I've been hurt for the last time
And I won't ever let another person take advantage of me
The anger burns my skin, third-degree
Now my blood's boiling hotter than a fiery sea
There's nobody getting close to me
They're gonna bow to the Evil Queen
Your nightmare is my dream
Just wait until they fall to my wicked schemes

I never thought of myself as mean
I always thought that I'd be the Queen
And there's no in-between
Cause if I can't have that
Then I will be the leader of the dark
And the bad
Now there's a devil on my shoulder
Where the angels used to be
And he's calling me the Queen of Mean (Calling me, calling me)
The Queen of Mean (Calling me, calling me, calling me, calling me)
The Queen of Mean

Something's pulling me
It's so magnetic
My body is moving
Unsure where I'm headed
All of my senses have left me defenseless
This darkness around me
Is promising vengeance
The price that I'm willing to pay is expensive
There's nothing to lose
When you're lonely and friendless
So my only interest is showing this princess
That I am the Queen
And my reign will be endless!!!

I want what I deserve
I want to rule the world
Sit back and watch them learn
It's finally my turn

If they want a villain for a Queen
I'm gonna be one that they've never seen
I'll show them what it means
Now that I am that
I will be the ruler of the dark and the bad
'Cause the devil's on my shoulder
Where the angels used to be
And he's calling me the Queen of Mean (Calling me, calling me, calling me, calling me)
The Queen of Mean (Calling me, calling me)

I want what I deserve!

  • The shears of fate, Beast's handmirror and black cauldron are seen in the museum.
