Lilly Allen Thinks Britney Spears Better Work Work Because It’s Hard Out Here

Screen Shot 2013-11-13 at 12.59.56

Four years after It’s Not Me, It’s You, Lilly Allen is back hoping to make the same impression her freshman album made (and I think she might). Her first single off her latest album definitely brings her back in the limelight. Hard Out Here is quite the catchy song which my wife calls her new anthem, but the video makes quite the social commentary. Being away from the industry for a while, Lily has quite a statement to make on the state of affairs currently engulfing the industries standards. Many videos come to mind with the imagery chosen for the song, specifically the balloon letters which satire Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines. And Twerkapalooza seems to carry on indefinitely throughout the video much like Miley Cyrus. Straight from the intro to the video you are posed with the industries facade where her manager has her getting liposuction. The whole thing is water cooler banter. You don’t want to be left out of this conversation at work.
People over at the Vice music blog noisy are in a mixed boat with the video as the writer of this article said:

“I think it’s a courageous, hilarious and timely critique of women in the music industry that could only come from someone who has both been through it all and had some time to distance themselves from it. Some of my colleagues think it’s click bait dressed as satire, claiming to pastiche the ignorance of racist tropes by performers like Miley Cyrus while repeating those same tropes unapologetically.”

One other cool thing they mentioned was, “Suzette who choreographed it is an amazing dancer herself, she does the Major Lazer tour”. How fricken’ sweet right?
Seriously check this video out. And after the jump, I included the lyrics for your enjoyment.

I suppose I should tell you
What this bitch is thinking
You find me in the studio
And not in the kitchen
I won’t be bragging ’bout my cars
Or talking ’bout my chains
Don’t need to shake my ass for you
‘Cause I’ve got a brain
If I tell you about my sex life
You call me a slut
Them boys be talking ’bout their bitches
No one’s making a fuss

There’s a glass ceiling to break, uh huh
There’s money to make
And now it’s time to speed it up
‘Cause I can’t move at this pace

Sometimes it’s hard to find the words to say
I’ll go ahead and say them anyway
Forget your balls, and grow a pair of tits

It’s hard, it’s hard
It’s hard out here for a bitch, It’s hard
(For a bitch, for a bitch)
For a bitch, It’s hard
It’s hard out here for a bitch, It’s hard
(For a bitch, for a bitch)
For a bitch, it’s hard
It’s hard out here

You’re not a size six
And you’re not good-looking
Well, you better be rich
Or be real good at cooking
You should probably lose some weight
‘Cause we can’t see your bones
You should probably fix your face
Or you’ll end up on your own
Don’t you want to have somebody who objectifies you?
Have you thought about your butt, who’s gonna tear it in two?
We’ve never had it so good, uh huh
We’re out of the woods
And if you can’t detect the sarcasm
You’ve misunderstood

Sometimes it’s hard to find the words to say
I’ll go ahead and say them anyway
Forget your balls, and grow a pair of tits

It’s hard, it’s hard
It’s hard out here for a bitch, It’s hard
(For a bitch, for a bitch)
For a bitch, It’s hard
It’s hard out here for a bitch, It’s hard
(For a bitch, for a bitch)
For a bitch it’s hard
It’s hard out here

A bitch, a bitch, a bitch
Bitch, bitch
A bitch, a bitch, a bitch
Bitch, bitch
A bitch, a bitch, a bitch
Bitch, bitch
A bitch, a bitch, a bitch
Bitch, bitch

Inequality promises
That it’s here to stay
Always trust the injustice
‘Cause it’s not going away
Inequality promises
That it’s here to stay
Always trust the injustice
‘Cause it’s not going away

Sometimes it’s hard to find the words to say
I’ll go ahead and say them anyway
Forget your balls, and grow a pair of tits

It’s hard, it’s hard
It’s hard out here for a bitch, It’s hard
(For a bitch, for a bitch)
For a bitch, It’s hard
It’s hard out here for a bitch, It’s hard
(For a bitch, for a bitch)
For a bitch, it’s hard
It’s hard out here
