Remember all the hype about video games in early 90s? Lily Allen has just made a great use of that poor, still colorful graphic. Retro games compilation served as a lyric video for her new song, ‘L8 CMMR’ from the ‘Girls” soundtrack.
Listen / watch also:
Lily Allen’s new video totally lacks the title ‘Air Balloon’, but it’s got some nice zebra and jaguar instead. Safari-oriented, hippie visual was directed by That Go. ‘Air Ballon’ is the second single (after ‘Hard Out Here’) off her upcoming record.
Remember this song? And all the controversy about it? Firstly just around the nudity in the video and then about the sexism and misogyny? So well, the catchy tune doesn’t seem to stop being discussed as one of the most controversial songs over the past few years. And an inspiration for artists like Miley Cyrus (watch her performance at the Video Music Awards this year) or recently, Lily Allen (watch her new video ‘Hard Out Here’).
The whole article about it in The Guardian – an interesting read.
Lily Allen strikes again. Her new video, “Hard Out Here” has only been released yesterday, but already raised a lot of controversy. British singer has been accused of racism because the backing dancers in the video are black. Well, not all of them, but most. Allen already replied to the criticism saying: “It has nothing to do with race, at all.”
