She don't believe in shooting stars
But she believe in shoes and cars
Kanye’s opening lines mirror those of Don Williams in “I Believe in You”:
I don’t believe in superstars, Organic food and foreign cars.
We are given an image of a hard-nosed, materialistic girl who doesn’t care about ideals
In this song, the “she” seems to represent Kanye’s fans, who temporarily abandon him every time he does something a little silly
In the final act of the 3-part music video for this song, the girl kills Kanye with a shovel (hence a clever pun on “she don’t believe in shooting stars” — she won’t kill famous people with a gun, but she’ll bludgeon them with a shovel!)
Not believing in shooting stars could also mean that she doesn’t believe in wishes. Philsophically, Materialism means that you only believe in physical matters and energy.
She is a materialist in both sense, philosophically and economically.
