Composition[edit]

Critical reception[edit]

Paul Cooper of Pitchfork Media said,"Kittin's dull-as-dishwater celebrity fantasies and irritatingly neutral delivery pale in comparison to how Harrison Crump performs in an identical environment. It's the difference between true talent and a plastic knock-off."[2]

Music video[edit]

The music video for "Madame Hollywood" was directed by Guy Sagy. It features elderly ladies lip-synching to the song.[3]

Live performances[edit]

Miss Kittin performed "Madame Hollywood (Ursula 1000 Remix)" live for the Sónar festival and included it on her album Live at Sónar.[4]
