Hollywood Tonight Lyrics

Play "Hollywood Tonight"
on Amazon Music

Lipstick in hand
Tahitian tanned
In her painted on jeans

She dreams of fame
She changed her name
To one that fits the movie screen
She's headed for the big time, that means

She's going Hollywood
She's going Hollywood tonight
She's...

    I think the song is about a young girl who thinks Hollywood is all about the glamour and fame,but does not realize that It has Its own dark side,and that It requires to play dirty...So,basically It is talking about the dark side of Hollywood...

    I like this song. It's about a girl who goes to Hollywood to make her dreams of becoming a star come true. The line "giving hot tricks to men just to get in when she was taught that that's not clean" means that the girl is doing things with men (such as working at or dancing around a pole in a strip joint, or prostitution) that aren't very wholesome and go against the morals she was taught while growing up.

    Anyway, this is a fantastic song to listen to as well as be inspired by. Kudos to Michael for writing such a neat and philosophical song. :)
