Lily Allen has released the video from her song "Sheezus" from her new album "Sheezus" and it's... not very good. What's going on with women who released catchy pop songs in the mid-2000's this week? Did they all get together in their secret bunker and collectively decide to release all their bad stuff at once?
Unlike Avril's Saturday Morning sugar seizure, Allen's video is at least mildly interesting looking. Her face looks pretty. I like how the whites of her eyes are lit up like the pharaoh in Stargate. But the song is milquetoast and the lyrics are very un-good.
Here's the controversial verse about periods that Allen claims was so fucking punk rock it prevented radio stations from airing it:
It makes me angry, I'm serious
But then again, I'm just about to get my period
Periods, we all get periods
Every month, yo, that's what the theory is
It's human nature, another cycle
Be nice to me, I'll make you one of my disciples
Pop feminism finally has the "Summer Girls" nonsense anthem it deserves.
