Little Miss Hollywood

Album: Little Miss Hollywood (2020)

Songfacts®:

  • By the time Betty Moon released her 10th studio album, Little Miss Hollywood, the Canadian-born singer-songwriter had been living in Los Angeles for 10 years. It's fair to say she learned a lot about the movers and shakers in Tinseltown. In a 2020 Songfacts interview, Moon described the album's title character: "Little Miss Hollywood is that girl you know from the Hollywood scene. She has her shit together, has fantastic style but knows how to have a great time. She knows all the right people, and the bouncers at the club know her by name. Living life through her eyes is fun because every night is a new story, and perhaps you meet a new celebrity or work out a record deal because you happened to meet the right person. Living in Hollywood is the perfect place to mix business and pleasure, and that's Little Miss Hollywood right there."
  • Moon, who also produced the album, says this is the song she's most proud of on the release. "It has a little bit of everything, electronic, rock, guitar riffs and a lot of Betty Moon energy," she explained. "Everything else on the record is great as well, but I placed that song first for a reason. It helps the album explode from the second you start it, and the rest ties together with the song perfectly."
