Lady Gaga – Paparazzi lyrics
We are the crowd
We're c-coming
out
Got my
flash on it's true
Need that picture of you
It's so magical
We'd be so fantastico

Leather and jeans
Garage glamorous
Not sure what it means
But this photo of us
It don't have a price
Ready for those flashing lights
'Cause you know that baby I

I'm your biggest fan
I'll follow you until you love me
Papa-paparazzi
Baby there's no other superstar
You know that I'll be your
Papa-paparazzi

Promise I'll be kind
But I won't stop until that boy is mine
Baby you'll be famous
Chase you down until you love me
Papa-paparazzi

I'll be your girl
Backstage at your show
Velvet ropes and guitars
Yeah cause you'll know
I'm staring between the sets
Eyeliner and cigarettes

Shadow is burnt
Yellow dance and return
My lashes are dry
Purple teardrops I cry
It don't have a price
Loving you is cherry pie
'Cause you know that baby I

I'm your biggest fan
I'll follow you until you love me
Papa-paparazzi
Baby there's no
other superstar
You know that I'll be your
Papa-paparazzi

Promise I'll be kind
But I won't stop until that boy is mine
Baby you'll be famous
Chase you down until you love me
Papa-paparazzi

Real good
(We dance in the studio)
Snap, snapped
(That shit on the radio)

Don't stop for anyone
Were plastic but we'll still have fun!

I'm your biggest fan
I'll follow you until you love me
Papa-paparazzi
Baby there's no other superstar
You know that I'll be your
Papa-paparazzi

Promise I'll be kind
But I won't stop until that boy is mine
Baby you'll be famous
Chase you down until you love me
Papa-paparazzi

    The song is about a lot of things, it's inspired in the struggle of the fame and being famous, like the Lady D example of the consecuences of the Fame, because in a certain way, she die because of the fame, when she was in a high spotlight and then how her death brought more publicity, that's why she put knife sounds in the camera snaps in her video at the beggining and when the paparazzis said "beautiful, beautiful" when she was lying almost death and nobody was helping! . And also talks about the struggle of whether you can have fame (or great success) or love, because having both it's like impossible. ;)

    I actually like this song. It has unique lyrics. (Although there are some parts that cross the line, I just remixed it and edited out some of the parts so it would be considered clean for my ipod.) And her voice sounds different. It can be about somebody following you, or you being paparazzi to another person (which is how I think of it as). Not bad, Lady Gaga. If only more of your songs were like this.

    I love all her songs, but in my opinion this is the best one she ever wrote. It says how far people will go to get noticed and it has a very catchy tone. When I'm at school and walking down the hall I will be singig it and random people will sing it with me its so funny. But its a great song and the triplets from daisy of love in the video just made it even better, they are so hot and lady gaga is so gorgoeus.

    The meaning to the song is simple really. She likes this famous dude, and she wants to be with him everywhere he goes consisting of her saying, "Baby theres no other superstar," and "But I won't stop until that boy is mine." Lady Gaga's music always has a meaning to it, and she is the most outgoing. Crazy dressing pop artist, and that is the reason of me loving her music so much because it rockz!

    Love Lady Gaga. Why doesn't lady do a concert. Don't know why she can't make a comment herself. I love her song'appluse'. I would love to see her in concert. 'i stand here waiting for you bang a gong. 'i thought it was, 'i stand here waiting for to make a call. 'but then I looked up the lyrics on the internet and learned the song the right way. I like her other song 'telephone'i didn't know all the words to the song but then one day I looked the lyrics up on YouTube and now I can sing the song all the way and not miss a beat. I also like 'bad romance' 'cause I can't stop singing it or keep it out of my head. 'cause your a criminal as long as you're mine. 'and 'i want you're phsico you're vertical stick. 'it is 3: 33pm and I am soo bored. I am still typing 'cause I want to pass that 'awesome'bar. Did you know that walking and doing whatever you do on your phone is a skill? That skill should be obtained. I don't care about miley cyrus, I to be a big used to be a big fan. But then she just up an changed[not to be a hater].

    This is what happened 1 shared some stuf on the internet and it5 all a conscious creation in cooperation with certain individuals. Years l8r it turns out 2 have a kind of impact and people remain silent about 1t, $0 1t seat5, but in their personal private thoughts a lot has been go1ng on, obviously. Cause for 1 it5 10k1 2 be interacting with 1t it was a spontaneous event and meant for public devour but 2 there comes a point in my opinion where 'the impact' need5 2 be acknowledged cause now it5 j5t ugly and awkward. 1 don't need to hear about your ideas and opinions about the event but of you dediceight all your thinking and feeling 2 1t maybe you should acknowledge that. 2 yourself for example. And accept that 1t touches you disgust5 fascinate5 whatever 1t may be.
    Look f o you are me 1t was a 08 k1nd of th1ng 1 move. D on. 1t5 a fini5hed thing in my mind $0 you can take what you want but once it5 incorporeight. D it5 your5, your own personal interpretation lll a subjective experience. There com. Es a point in my opinion you need to take responsibility for your own information intake? Cause it5 personal the information one seeks? On the internet?
    1 am willing to specify about the event, my part of 1t of there are que5tion5 about my. Perception and my. Angle but of you don't approach me directly and shy away from clarification there i5 not much 1 can do. But 1 thing i5 certain :) you don't see what 1 see. $0 why are you trying so hard?

    Its about a girl (like a fangirl) almost being obsessed with a boy who is a celebrity in a famous band, she wants him to love her too so she follows him and kinda stalks him and she wont leave him alone until he loves her back but hes a superstar but she wont stop until he is hers and she is their biggest fan and she is in love with one the members of the band so basically its about a fangirl being obsessed and crazy in love with a member of a really famous band (boy band) .

    The meaning of this song is clear: it really has nothing to do with the papparazzi and it is used as a mere term of endearemen in this case. It simn talks about a crayseh girl acting out on inphatttuation, not hove, to stalk a boy she knows. The reference to the papparazzi is made due to the constant hounding caused by camera crew and reporters on prominend figures in societea. In the video, she is killed by her hubby but still comes back for him to kill him as well as a way of talk talking him back with her. It is as simon as: if I cannot have you, nobodysperfect will.

    This sng is about how society is blood thirsty, the paparazzi feeds off this addiction. In gossip magazines people are victimised by the paparazzi, either spreading rumours or secrets which the public have no right to know. Through the constant judgements of society on a famous person it's not surprising they do as they do (creating an endless circle of press coverage). It also shows that through fame it is hard to find who to trust (as demonstrated with gaga's lover at the begining attempting to murder her). After realising how the press are like a pack of wolves, shredding a star's career apart, and how some people will do anything for fame and money she kills her lover, thus gaining a great press coverage but ending up in prison.

    @me13 No offence, but I think it's yellow dance and return, not yellow, dance we return. It just doesen't make sense. I mean, that's broken english, and I think that the songwriters would not use english like that (although there are some exceptions, like ain't, etc.) It's either: yellow dance and return, or yellow dance and we turn. I've been listening 2 it for an hr, n I think it's one of them. I also really need to type out lyrics for personal use. Anyway, if you think ur's is correct, don't be angry. Just tryin' 2 help out. : D

    The meaning to me of Paparazzi is that they always in stars business writing about things in there tabloids about stars thing that may or may not be true until they the stars sometimes kill each other got to love paparazzi at the end she read about her boy friend involved with the maid so she kill him and the Paparazzi is there again making her famous with the pictures and the stores. Well this is what I think is the meaning or what she was trying to say.
