Songfacts®:

  • This electro-rock tune was the lead single from American dance pop act Selena Gomez & The Scene's debut album, Kiss & Tell. Ted Bruner, Trey Vittetoe and Gina Schock, who've written for other Disney acts in the past, wrote the song. Gina Schock of the Go-Gos was a major influence on the record, serving as a producer and co-writer on several tracks on Kiss & Tell. The Go-Gos scored their biggest hit with their 1980 song "We Got The Beat."
  • The song is a ridicule of Hollywood and the famous life. Selena told Just Jared Jr.: "It's basically about Hollywood and what people think about it and essentially how plastic it is sometimes. It's fun and I think girls can relate to it somewhat, for me it was because of Hollywood but it can really relate to a mean girl, an ex-boyfriend, to whoever."
