I think it's about prostitution. Everyone thinks it's about being beautiful and rich, but what would dirty mean? At first we might think it's about partying, but look at the hidden context in the song.
"We got a RED LIGHT," - Red light district for whores.
"But we ain't got no money" - Prostitutes normally don't.
"Our hair is perfect, While were all getting shit wrecked" - From having multiple sex partners a day.
"Daddy I'm so sorry, I'm so s-s-sorry yeah" - Daddy is often another name they call the pimp
"We do the dance right" Pole dancing?
"We have got it made like ice cream topped with honey" - This confused me the most. It doesn't sound very appetizing, doesn't it? That's because a prostitute's life is kind of like that, something sweet (beauty, sex) but coated with something sweeter (too much sex, makeup, money) makes it an unappealing life.

its about having a glamourous life even if you're broke. and i think being a hooker for fame inspired by her time as a burlesque dancer. her dad was angry about her being a burlesque dancer (daddy i'm so sorry). at the monster ball she said. get your guns out and shoot that money cause you don't need it! (bang, bang) than she sang beautiful you dirty bitch. the song is also about hating money

I saw she said on a interview it is about her when she was younger.her and her friends would go and dress up and go to clubs and act like they were rich. They would say they had all this money when they had zilch.(I am guessing this part) but maybe they get caught doing this and maybe that is the line "daddy I'm so sorry im so s-s-sorry yeah". So that is what I think

This is her first pop-dance song. At this time she was on a lot of Cocaine, so basically this song is about the nightlife then. When she says "Daddy, I'm so sorry" she means that even though she knows she is wrong, she still does everything "wrong"

Actually this song is about a bunch of rich kids, but they are not actually rich their parents are, and they spend all their parents money in expensive stuff like parties alcohol drugs ect...
