"Celebrity Skin" is an international hit single from Hole's Celebrity Skin album on the Geffen Records label, and it is the band's all-time most commercially successful and enduring song.
Composed by songwriters Courtney Love, Eric Erlandson and Billy Corgan (front man for The Smashing Pumpkins), "Celebrity Skin" is a Grammy-nominated masterpiece of cynical commentary on the Hollywood entertainment industry in all its dazzling falsity and alluring hypocrisy.
The video (below) has long been popular at the end of the article, Hollywood & Horus, which expounds on subliminal themes provided within the song's lyrics and accompanying music video.
Standing the test of time, this song still kicks major ass.
One of the most scathing, brutally-honest California songs ever conceived, "Celebrity Skin" by Hole provides a glamorous glimpse at the ugliness of Hollywood that still strangely attracts the world.
