Video Premiere Lily Allen - Sheezus



Lily Allen is back and she is not playing pretty when it comes to her pop contemporaries. Check out her latest video for the albums title track "Sheezus" and a interview from Rolling Stone on the tell it like it is single.


Allen recently told Rolling Stone she wrote the song backwards, beginning with the word "divas," which rhymes with "Sheezus." From there, the song's message about female pop singers came to her. "I don't like being compared to other people because I'm quite aware that there are people who are far more talented and have better singing voices than me," she said. "I don't like being put in the same category as people because we have the same genitals and boobs. Nobody is going to write 'Lily Allen vs. Ed Sheeran.' It just doesn't happen."

Instead, she said the song was a call for unity of sorts. Of the women she toasts in the song, she said, "I want all of them to be Sheezus, and I want to be Sheezus too."

Allen called the album titled a "confident title choice, and a little nod to Kanye West" when she announced it in February. But unlike West's Yeezus, which bore a sparse cover, she gave the record an ornate cover, featuring her sitting amid three corgis atop a Roman-looking building with the words "divide and conquer" written on it.
