Unless you have been living under a rock for the past few months, Miley Cyrus is at the heart of all controversy surrounding music. So much so that Robbie Williams and Lily Allen have decided to take a jab at her and turn it into a learning lesson. For the latter, Allen thought the best way would be to describe her disgust with Cyrus and a couple others in her latest video, “Hard Out Here.”
After three years of absence, the singer of “F*&k You” returns to the front of the scene denouncing the hyper-sexualization of the music industry. From the first verse, Lily Allen attacks the famous “twerkers” Miley, Rihanna and several others. “I do not need to shake my butt for you, because I’ve got a brain,” she sings in one verse.
The young British woman also slips a snub to singer Robin Thicke in her video, parodying his song “Blurred Lines,” which at the time had offended many feminists.” Robin Thicke has a big (blank)” is replaced by “Lily Allen has a baggy (blank).”
This is definitely one song that is not meant for children or the ears of the faint-hearted. The 28-year-old artist, mother of two, does not forget to tackle the issue of being thin either. The video starts with her on an operating table, ready to undergo liposuction on the advice of her manager. In short, this is a real modern “protest song” of sorts, and doesn’t hold back in any areas when it comes to calling out the shameless antics of people like Miley, Rhianna and Thicke.
