The song was met with critical acclaim, with reviewers complimenting the lyrics and the fun nature of the song. It also achieved minor commercial success, peaking at number eighty-three on the UK Singles Chart. Two versions were released of the song's accompanying music video - one was intercut with clips of the ABC television series, Dirty Sexy Money serving as a promotion for the show, and the other was the full-length video. Both versions feature Gaga and company dancing around in various locations of a mansion, and burning money.
Gaga has performed the song live several times, including on her first headlining The Fame Ball Tour, where she performed the song while wearing a futuristic bustier with silver triangular panels. The performance was praised by critics for Gaga's "strong" vocals and her energy, and also for giving the show a strong beginning.
