Even IU revealed the inspiration behind “Celebrity”. Although unnamed, IU revealed that the friend often drew attention for her eclectic clothing choice and tastes, varied talents and shy nature. However, others treated her as an odd person for it.
IU loved her friend even more for all these “oddities” as it made her more so herself, but the friend lived under scrutiny and hate. She wrote the lyrics based on what she wanted to tell the friend, and it blossomed soon, into a fully-fledged song.
According to IU, the song can be related to many where they might have experienced being the odd one out, at least once in their lives.
IU wanted to convey to these people that “someone who comes from the stars” (often used to describe odd people) but “are a star themselves“.
