Lily Allen, as everyone knows, pulls no punches. Her new song, the hip-hop inspired title track from her upcoming 3rd full album Sheezus, finds Lily claiming the diva crown from Katy, Gaga, Lorde, Beyonce and beyond. Of course, Lils is always a little tongue-in-cheek, so take it for what it is. The chorus is a veritable who's who of female pop stars, "Ri-Ri isn't scared of Katy Perry's roaring, Queen Bey's gone back to the drawing/Lorde smells blood yeah, she's about to slay you, Kid ain't one to f--k with when she's only on her debut/ We're all watching Gaga, LOL haha, dying for the art so really she's a martyr." Heehee. I love Lily. It's all in good fun. She tells MTV, "It's kind of ridiculous because I name-check Beyoncé, Katy Perry, Rihanna and Lorde, and I don't think that I could even possibly take one tiny diamond off of any of their crowns," she explained. "The idea of the song is the ridiculousness that there even is a Sheezus." The video is a psychedelic romp with lots of bright colored graphics. Anyway, enjoy the video below. Sheezus, the album, is out May 6th in the US and May 5th in the UK.
