Lily Allen Mocks Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke In Her New Video, “Hard Out Here”

It’s been four years since Lily Allen’s sophomore album It’s Not Me, It’s You, but that time out of the spotlight hasn’t made the singer blind to what’s currently going on in music. Today Allen makes her return, and a pronounced one at that, with not only a new single, “Hard Out Here,” but also a cutting video to go along with it. The clip is an ode to Allen’s acute awareness (and obvious disdain) for what’s going on in pop culture, featuring Allen trying to twerk, models pouring champagne on themselves, Allen’s agent forcing her to get lipo, and even includes bubble-letter balloons similar to those in Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” video. Think Pink’s “Stupid Girls” video, but the 2013 version. Watch the awesome visuals above, and to help hammer home the point, NY Mag has also posted the lyrics to the song:

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
