Lily Allen is blurring music videos! The 28-year-old singer is finally making her return to music after taking a four-year break. On Tuesday, Nov. 12, Allen released the music video for her new song, “Hard Out Here.”
The new track off the British singer’s forthcoming third studio album appears to reference Three 6 Mafia’s Oscar-winning 2005 song “It’s Hard Out Here for a Pimp.” The Christopher Sweeney-directed video opens with Allen getting liposuction and her male manager commenting, “Jesus, how does somebody let themselves get like this?” Allen replies, “Um, I had two babies,” a nod to the November 2011 birth of daughter Ethel and January 2013 birth of daughter Marnie.
Breaking into song, Allen, wearing a sexy black jumpsuit, is then shown filming a raunchy music video with scantily-clad female backup dancers. In a clear reference to Miley Cyrus‘ “We Can’t Stop” music video, Allen and her dancers twerk and promote products like Fujifilm’s Instax camera.
In a nod to Robin Thicke‘s also-controversial infamous “Blurred Lines” music video, Allen is later seen dancing in front of silver balloons that spell out “Lily Allen has a baggy p–sy.”
In the track, Allen sings, “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.”
