About Hollywood's Not America

"Hollywood's Not America" is a song by American pop singer/songwriter Ferras and is featured on his debut studio album, Aliens & Rainbows. It was released on January 29, 2008, as the lead single from that album. Soon after the single's release, it was revealed that "Hollywood's Not America" would feature as the exit music on popular reality TV show American Idol. However, Graham Colton's "Best Days" was used for the first elimination of the semi-finals. Additionally, on February 29, 2008, it was announced that "Celebrate Me Home" performed by Ruben Studdard would be the exit song for the current season, in contradiction to earlier reports that "Hollywood's Not America" will be used. The music video for the single was heavily featured on teen-oriented cable network The N, while a remake/mash-up video was created to promote the Canadian-produced teen drama Degrassi: The Next Generation.

Born Helena Jane
With a restless soul
She moved west to California
Became a center-fold

But once you change your name
Well the pieces fall
Now she hardly recognizes herself at all

And there's never any rain, when you want it
A hollow little game, and you've won it
Looking for a thrill but you've done it all

So long, put your blue jeans back on girl
Go home
Remember Hollywood's not America
So long put your blue jeans back on girl
Go home
Remember Hollywood's not America
O yeah!

And everybody heres, from somewhere else
You could make a million dollars, but you might lose yourself
And you can take the heat will your heart go cold
They say acting's just pretending, even that gets old

And there's never any rain, when you want it
A hollow little game, and you've won it
Looking for a thrill but you've done it all

So long, put your blue jeans back on girl
Go home
Remember Hollywood's not America
So long put your blue jeans back on girl
Go home
Remember Hollywood's not America
O yeah!

And I know what to do when
I know that you
You can be anything you want to be

So long, put your blue jeans back on girl
Go home
Remember Hollywood's not America
So long put your blue jeans back on girl
Go home
Remember Hollywood's not America
O yeah!

It's not America
