That’s Loki‘s motto. When he wants attention, he’s going to get attention. Period. Either you give it to him willingly or he takes it from you. While he’d prefer the former, he has no qualms with the latter.
It’s essentially the Andre Linoge syndrome from Stephen King’s Storm of the Century: “Give me what I want and I’ll go away. […] I assure you I can punish.”
