Lily Allen Takes on Sexism in Hilarious ‘Hard Out Here’ Video
Lily Allen gets super freaky and super-duper snarky in ‘Hard Out Here,’ the feisty U.K. singer’s long-awaited comeback single. Allen debuted the song — a sleek funk-pop workout vaguely reminiscent of Rick James’ ‘Super Freak’ — today (Nov. 12), and better still, she dropped a hilarious video highlighting the sarcastic anti-sexist lyrics. “Forget your balls and grow a pair of tits,” she sings, commenting on the travails of being a female pop star. “It’s hard out here for a bitch.”
‘Hard Out Here’ is Lily’s first new tune since 2009, when she stepped out of the limelight to start a family, and it prefaces a full-length due out next year. Should the sharp-witted new mum tour in support, don’t expect any co-headlining gigs with Robin Thicke. The blue-eyed soulster is among those she lampoons here, as she finds a rather colorful way to poke fun at that big-wang boast he makes in his ‘Blurred Lines’ clip.
