    Found this gem from the Pet Shop Boys - I think the lyrics sum up pop music (and celeb culture) these days quite fittingly despite the song being released back in 1993 :

    (Hello! Darling! Mmm...
    How dare you! Do you know who I am?
    You look fabulous!)

    I know what you think
    It's clear as mud in your eyes
    We're the plastic poseurs and prostitutes
    you've obviously come to despise
    But you don't know nothing
    You're not hot enough to matter
    You don't understand the glamourous life
    a dream that no one can shatter

    We're shameless, we will do anything
    to get our fifteen minutes of fame
    We have no integrity, we're ready to crawl
    To obtain celebrity we'll do anything at all

    I'm ambitious
    Believe me, I'm going to be big
    I'm a slave to glamour
    applause and clamour
    my make-up, my wardrobe, my wigs
    Don't call me pathetic
    I'm harder than you'll ever guess
    relentlessly tough
    'cause when the going gets rough
    the tough get their pictures in the press

    We're shameless, we will do anything
    to get our fifteen minutes of fame
    We have no integrity, we're ready to crawl
    To obtain celebrity we'll do anything at all

    Anything, anything, anything at all
    We'll do anything, anything, anything at all

    (How dare you! Do you know who I am?
    It's an absolute disgrace!)

    Tell me you love me
    Admit it, you're really impressed
    Would it not amuse you
    for me to seduce you?
    Have you ever seen me undressed?

    We're shameless, we will do anything
    to get our fifteen minutes of fame
    We have no integrity, we're ready to crawl
    To obtain celebrity we'll do anything at all

    We're shameless, we will do anything
    to get our fifteen minutes of fame
    We have no integrity, we're ready to crawl
    To obtain celebrity we'll do anything with anyone
    go absolutely anywhere for anything at all
