"The holy trinity of 911, Plastic Doll, then Sour Candy in succession is the miracle God spoke of in the Bible. Chromatica is next-level, sophisticated euphoria but also has me wanting to break a table with my ass. Pleasing chaos!" one Twitter review of the album read. Another tweet read, "Plastic Doll is the best pop song I ever heard since Bad Romance I think. #Chromatica." One went on to say, "Total mood. Now I'm crying while Plastic Doll is on repeat."

On this track, Gaga compares herself to a “plastic doll” that fits the definition of a perfect pop star and dwells on the objectification of artists in pop culture. However, through the song, she explains that it hurts how society dehumanizes artists and puts them into boxes. According to lyrics site Genius, "The themes of the song are similar to Gaga’s track, 'Do What U Want' which also alluded to the idea of being “plastic” and separating her mind from her physical body."

The track was one of the top ones on most Gaga fans' lists. "Most likely is Sour Candy, but I’d def be down for Plastic Doll or 1000 Doves," one said and another wrote, "I’m freaking hooked on Plastic Doll, Replay and 911."

"The whole chromatica album is a bop, aside from rain one me and sour candy, my personal faves are plastic doll, fun tonight, alice and 1000 doves. BUT SERIOUSLY ALL THE SONGS ARE GREAT, IT'S SO HARD TO CHOOSE," one fan wrote and another said, "Plastic Doll: my least claimed track turned to surprise me in a nice way. the lyrics are strongly amazing and i thought it was gonna be more bubblegum but no, whew 8/10."

The lyrics of the song go: "Don't play with me/It just hurts me/I'm bouncin' off the walls/No, no, no, I'm not your plastic doll." It further goes: "I've got blonde hair and cherry lips/I'm state of art, I'm microchipped/Am I your type? Am I your type?"
