Lily Allen calls out Beyonce, Katy Perry, Rihanna, Gaga and Lorde in 'Sheezus' video

Posted on

Sheezus Video

Lily Allen’s at it again. In her new video for Sheezus, the never-not-opinionated Brit takes aim at reigning pop queens: Beyoncé, Katy Perry, Rihanna, Lady Gaga and even sweet little Lorde. (Surprisingly she leaves T-Swift out of it.)

“RiRi isn’t scared of Katy Perry’s roaring, Queen B’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.”

Watch it below:

Granted the tone of the song is tongue-in-cheek, so she’s not really telling Bey to “give me that crown, bitch.” (Or is she?) Considering she recently sounded off on woman-on-woman hate, it’s interesting that she went with this chorus.

I guess she wanted to beat us to the punch, when it came to comparing her to these other divas: “I’m ready for all the comparisons/I think it’s dumb and it’s embarrassing/I’m switching off, no longer listening/I’ve had enough of persecution and conditioning.”

Props for working menstruation in there, though. “It makes me angry, I’m serious, but then again, I’m just about to get my period/Periods, we all get periods.”
