I get the feeling that a large chunk of the Moffat hate would never have materialised if he didn’t troll the fandom.
Here’s my question to that: why does he feel it necessary to troll the fandom in the first place? What possible service does that serve?
The song talks about the price of being famous, that is not as fabulous as everyone thinks.
"Is this something that you’d ever need? Well, I’m okay." Talks about the money and benefits you earn by being famous, that they’re really not necessary as you think.
“Are you scared to take what they’ve taken from you?” Talks about recovering your freedom from the managers because of the contracts you sign at the beginning.
“We’ve sold our names.” A clear reference of “selling your soul” for becoming famous.
“I’m sick of being accosted by the ghost in the street.” Talks about being stalked by paparazzis.
“When you’re eating and sleeping in all the noise?” Noise refers to concerts, partys, places where you’re always surrounded with people.
“We’re biting everything that we’re told.” Being manipulated by the managers, doing what they want you to do.
“Then a smile and a couple of jokes will be enough to convince the good folks.” Refers to pretending to your fans that your famous life is fabulous but inside you know that’s simple a mess.
A great message behind that 6 minutes, I think is the way they express how they feel now they’re famous, that’s why this song is not originally in Supermodel. Also this song is an important part of the main meaning of the album, in the cover you can see it clearly.
My favorite song of the album, it’s simple amazing. "
