Watch Lily Allen’s New Video, “Hard Out Here” (NSFW)

Lily Allen‘s new video for “Hard Out Here” has arrived and it addresses the issues of feminism in a daring way. The visuals are a little hypersexualized but I think that’s the point the British songstress is trying to make.  Allen’s overuse of the word “bitch” in her lyrics doesn’t compare to the rest of the lyrics as they playfully advocate for less misogyny in today’s mainstream soundscape.  The satirical video is about social injustice and has sparked major controversy on YouTube. Take a look for yourself. The visual was directed by Christopher Sweeney.

“Forget your balls and grow a pair of tits / It’s hard out here for a bitch”

  1. I mean I do enjoy the lyrics but the video is really awful and racist. People have been saying it’s supposed to be satire against Miley’s objectification of black women but really it looks exactly like the same thing Miley is doing. Plus it gives the “I don’t have to shake my ass cuz I’ve got a brain” a whole new meaning as Lily Allen, fully clothed, is surrounded by black ladies twerking…

    It’s just disappointing. It’s a nice song, but the racism and misogynoir was really unnecessary.
