  • Adams told the Daily Mail March 7, 2008 about this song concerning female stars who go off the rails after becoming famous: "It was inspired by an article in Rolling Stone about a porn star (Shannon Wilsey a.k.a. Savannah, a former stripper and girlfriend of Slash) who committed suicide. I've played on the theme of tragic figures in the past, but 'Flower Grown Wild' is also about how we devour our stars."
