When transcribing the following is this a correct usage of brackets? And should I capitalize the "r" in the word "right?"

What do they want? “I want to be po-pu-lar.” [sung to the tune of the song from Wicked] right? “If I don't have a cute figure, no one will marry me. They won't look at me or date me, so I have to do whatever it takes.”

@kdaysie,
The way I read it, the word "right" is part of the sentence. Using the brackets, I would transcribe it like this:

What do they want? "I want to be po-pu-lar," (sung to the tune of the song from Wicked), right? "If I don't have a cute figure, no one will marry me. They won't look at me or date me, so I have to do whatever it takes."
