Behind “Celebrity” lyrics by IU
On January 9, IU revealed her new song project onstage at the 35th Golden Disk Awards when she accepted her Daesang for Digital Song of the Year 2020. She was hoping that it can bring sincere comfort to the ones who are feeling drained and suffering. She also thinks that she could release a refreshing song and give people strength.
Regarding the song lyrics, IU explained that she wrote what he wanted to say to her “special friend.” She added that her friend has unique tastes, talents, defense mechanisms, and personality. But she has been treated as a weird person just because she is different from others.
Also, IU shared, “As I was working on it, I realized that it was also my story. Then, after completing the lyrics, I thought that everyone else could replace the main character (of the lyrics), so it was not only about my friend or me.” She added, “Also, I want to tell my friend and all those who were born unique that you’re not weird but a star.“
