Applause is a very meaningful song to me, because it addresses what many think of celebrities today, that we do it for the attention. But some of us are artists in this group called celebrities, and what we create doesn’t live on unless theres an audience to remember it. So I may need your attention at first, so I can sing you my song, but it’s the applause after that lets me know if I’ve entertained you. Entertainment makes people happy, I live for the applause, to know I’ve spread that. I live to hear you cheer, to just be a part of that. I believe in show business. The applause is what breeds that thing that I love. When I know i’ve made you happy. When I know it was good.
