OtapediaWorld is Mine (song by Hatsune Miku)

"World is Mine" (ワールドイズマイン), was released on May 31, 2018. It was produced by ryo of supercell fame. The song is about an earnest girl in love who, through many indirect sentences which make her sound like a spoiled brat craving for attention, just wants the person she loves to give her proper attention and reciprocate her feelings
The song has entered the Hall of Legend and received many covers by other Vocaloids, with altered lyrics to match that character's perspective. It is one of ryo's most notable songs and is one of the most popular Vocaloid songs of all time. The song currently has over 8 million views on Nico Nico Douga.
The music video for the song was a still illustration by artist redjuice, which showed a stern-looking Hatsune Miku lying on a bed covered in a red and black tile-pattern bedsheet. She is wearing long black stockings, a short black skirt, and a thin silk-like shirt with a black ribbon. Miku stares at the camera while touching the tips of her fingers in a serious yet alluring way. The image was so popular that in December 2009, Good Smile Company released a 1/8th scale replica of the image titled supercell feat. Miku Hatsune: World is Mine (Natural Frame). The replica could be framed for hanging on a wall or leaning on a desk, and came with brown and "natural" frame colors. The replica retailed at 8,381 yen.

An official sequel titled "I'll Teach You" (教えてあげる) was sung by Nagi, the female vocalist in supercell.

Kanji Romaji Translation
世界でいちばんおひめさま そういう扱い 心得てよね sekai de ichiban ohimesama sou iu atsukai kokoroete yo ne Don’t ever forget it: You should treat me as the #1 princess in the whole world.

Interpretation

The first half of the song is filled with demands of attention, “always notice how I changed my hairstyle”, “look at me from head to feet” and “if I say one word, you must answer with three” and so on, which without a subject may sound as if she’s giving orders to the whole world, but upon entering the latter half, it becomes clear she’s talking to a single person.
She’s begging for attention and putting a spin to it, to make herself sound haughty rather than needy but in the end, her façade is hard to keep as she keeps pointing out that her hand is feeling lonely, which is the only way she can find to say she wants to hold hands.
Rather than being a princess, she just wants to be treated as one, and despite saying she’s not being self-centered in her antics, she’s fine with being scolded if necessary, almost acknowledging she might be going a little too far on some points. “I’ll refrain from the shortcakes with strawberries on top and the premium egg puddings, just don’t think of me as a self-centered girl” she sats, losing some of her confidence. A moment later she doubles down by saying how she can do fine by herself, “if you don’t watch me closely, I may go away, you know?” and distancing herself from the target of her affections, only to be instantly held by him, as she nearly is hit by a car. The song then ends with her remarking how suddenly being held by him was much more dangerous to her than nearly being run over.
