"Vanity" is a song written by Lady Gaga, Rob Fusari (Team Love Child), and Tom Kafafian.

Background

The song was produced by Fusari in 2006 and was made available on Gaga's Myspace for a short period of time. The song appeared as track eleven on the U.S. advance promo edition of The Fame. This version was issued some time in the Spring or Summer of 2008 before the album release. This feature was the only CD release the song got. The song was later originally planned to be track eight on the UK version of The Fame, however, it was cut due to the jazzy sound. Instead, the song was released as an exclusive download song for the music store, Rhapsody, on November 11, 2008. When tickets went on sale for the 2011 Monster Ball Tour, LiveNation made the song available as a free download to those who bought tickets. Lady Gaga released a statement about her collaboration with Lady Starlight.

Fashion and attitude and style, that's what we breathe for. We joke that our full-time boyfriend is our vanity.

—Lady Gaga

Release

The song was used in the movie "Beastly" as a cover sung by Hanover Swain. It was also released on Beastly (Songs From The Motion Picture) on March 1, 2011.

Lyrics

Midnight at the glamour show on a Sunday night
Everybody drink a lotta whiskey and wine
We dance like no tomorrow, we're on burlesque time
But everybody's gotta work tomorrow at 9

Touch me, tou-touch me baby
But don't mess up my hair
Love me, lo-lo-love me crazy
But don't get too attached 'cause this a brief affair

Vanity
Pictures in magazines, movie screens
Vanity
Mirrors and cameras, so many beauty queens
Vanity
It's so good to be
Fabulous and glamorous
We love ourselves and no one else

Va-va-va-va-va-va-va-vanity
Va-vanity
Va-va-va-vanity

Nothing's wrong with being just a little bit vain
We need a little pretty 'cause this country's insane
So go ahead and label me whatever you like
But nothing's quite as sexy as a woman is fine

Touch me, tou-touch me baby
But don't mess up my hair
Love me, lo-lo-love me crazy
But don't get too attached 'cause this a brief affair

Vanity
Pictures in magazines, movie screens
Vanity
Mirrors and cameras, so many beauty queens
Vanity
It's so good to be
Fabulous and glamorous
We love ourselves and no one else

Look at me, whatcha lookin' at?
Look at me, whatcha starin' at?
Look at me, whatcha lookin' at?
Look at me, whatcha starin' at?

I'm comin' around, I'm sippin' on André, it's time
I heard the cutie's in the back startin' the pa-party line
Let's dance quick round, we're in the vanity house
We're covered in sequins diamonds, we're happy 'cause we're shinin'

Touch me, tou-touch me baby
But don't mess up my hair
Love me, lo-lo-love me crazy
But don't get too attached 'cause this a brief affair

Vanity
Pictures in magazines, movie screens
Vanity
Mirrors and cameras, so many beauty queens
Vanity
It's so good to be
Fabulous and glamorous
We love ourselves and no one else

Vanity
Pictures in magazines, movie screens
Vanity
Mirrors and cameras, so many beauty queens
Vanity
It's so good to be
Fabulous and glamorous
We love ourselves and no one else
