  • The lyrics reference Kate Moss, an English model and actress known for her skinniness; she was associated with a fashion aesthetic known as "heroin chic".
  • There is an actual grapefruit diet (also known as the "Hollywood diet" or the "10-day, 10-pounds-off diet") that originated in the 1930s; it's a short-term, scientifically dubious fad diet based on the idea that grapefruits contain some sort of fat-burning enzyme.
