  • I have tasted stardom since before I breathed
    My well-known hungry daddy modeled it for me
    And I have never left this ambitious city
    And I've only known a lust for VIP

    I have studied long and hard how to proceed
    Nothing but my name in bright lights call to me
    And I display the perfect amount of ennui
    I'll carve my face up if you'll indulge me

    Give me celebrity
    My kingdom to be famous
    Tell me who I have to be
    Starving to be famous

    Never wondered who's pulling strings above me
    'Cause I'm aware of wheels, heels and vintage Gucci
    I'm on my twentieth round of Vitamin V
    And I'll cut my weight in two if you'll have me

    Give me celebrity
    My kingdom to be famous
    Tell me who I have to be
    Starving to be famous

    Let me into this exclusive club
    Ignore my not-so-hidden agenda
    I am a tattooed, sexy dancing monkey
    Just aloof enough to get you to want me
    Hoping my persona ingratiates me
    Give my life for an opportunity

    Give me celebrity
    My kingdom to be famous
    Tell me who I have to be
    Starving to be famous

    Give me celebrity
    My kingdom to be famous
    Tell me who I have to be
    Starving to be famous Writer/s: Alanis Nadine Morissette, Guy Sigsworth
