"Hollywood" is a single by Marina and the Diamonds on her first studio album, The Family Jewels. The single version of the song has slightly different lyrics than the album version.


When asked why "Hollywood" was chosen as a single in an interview with the BBC News website, Diamandis said:

"I'm saying: "This is who I was. Hollywood infected my brain and I really valued the wrong things in life, but I changed dramatically."

"This obsession with celebrity culture is really unhealthy. I don't want to live my life like that, and I don't want to be a typical pop star".[1]

Diamandis told The Sun: "That track is a sarcastic and cynical take on everything that's commercial about America. I love the country and people dearly and can't wait to tour there but I hate the way it brainwashes you. I am seduced by its pop culture but I don't want my brain to be infected."[2]
