==Background==
  +
According to [[Joe Vulpis]], he was on a ski trip to Utah when he got a phone call from Gaga telling him that she had just landed her first big record appointment with [[Island Def Jam]].

:"''The 'Hollywood' creative process was pretty amazing cause I think she wrote the song relatively quick. I mean we just came in literally at like midnight after flying in from Utah. I still had my ski jacket on, my skis on my shoulders. 'All right, let's go to work!' And I think we went to work for about fourteen hours straight and we tracked the band until just about everybody passed out. And the creative process was great, we just blasted it down live take-live take-live take until we hit the magic wand. It was a lot of fun, and I don't think we ever lost, you know, we never realized what time it was. We went effortlessly, timelessly-it was a fun process, that track.''"

LyricsEdit

The Bitter End versionEdit

Listen, I've got the sickest ambition.
Deep in the mirror I am scared,
Don't know who the hell is there.
Yeah, I'm losing my reflection.

Obsession

The thing it's our new religion.
Each model and celebrity
Changes how I look at me.
Oh, don't tell me, don't tell me
I'll never be

A superstar 'cause I know I could
Look like a girl in Hollywood.
Hollywood, Hollywood
In Hollywood, In Hollywood

Women, let's talk about our condition.
How beauty's a commodity,
Women don't get the best things,
Battered liver though, with poison.

I am the bill.
In the world without me, this vision.
Sure Hollywood's commercially amorous
But naturally, me? Quite ugly as hell.
Tell me I'm not sixteen!

Like a superstar, yeah I know I could
Look like a girl in Hollywood.
Hollywood, Hollywood
Hollywood, Hollywood

Within a year I know I could
Look like a girl in Hollywood.
Like a superstar, yeah I know I could
Look like a girl in Hollywood.

Within the year I know I could
Look like a girl in Hollywood.
Like superstars, yeah I know I could
Look like a girl in Hollywood.
In Hollywood, Hollywood
Hollywood, HollywoodLike a superstar,
Yeah I know I could.
Look like a girl in Hollywood.

Within the year I know I could
Look like a girl in Hollywood.
Like superstars, yeah I know I could
Look like a girl in Hollywood.
In Hollywood, Hollywood
Hollywood, Hollywood

The Cutting Room versionEdit

Listen
I've got the sickest ambition
Deep in the mirror I am scared
Don't know who the hell is there
Yeah, I'm losing my reflection

Obsession
You'd think it's our new religion
Each model and celebrity
Changes how I look at me
Oh don't tell me, don't tell me I'll never be

A superstar 'cause I know I could look
Llike a girl in Hollywoo-hood
Hollywoo-hood, Hollywoo-hood
Hollywoo-hood, Hollywoo-hood

Women
Let's talk about our condition
Now beauty's a commodity
Nip and tuck your fantasy
But you better live with your revision

I have a vision
It's a world without the incisions
Sure Hollywood's commercially
Glamorous but naturally's
The way to be and you can't tell me I'm not sexy

Like a superstar 'cause I know I could look
Llike a girl in Hollywoo-hood
Hollywoo-hood, Hollywoo-hood
Hollywoo-hood, Hollywoo-hood

Woo-hood, Hollywoo-hood
