This song is about celebrities and how they have to seem perfect and happy all the time, which is the only way you can make it in Hollywood. The lyrics, "It's obvious that you're dying, dying, it's living proof that the cameras lying" could mean that while Hollywood is doing it's best to make celebrities seem perfect on TV and movies, people have learned to look past that and see that some celebrities are really miserable with the constant spotlight being put on them.
