Another day, another controversial song and video by a female artist. This time, it’s not Miley Cyrus stripping off but the return of Lily Allen. I have always liked Lily’s music and I’m pleased to see her comeback – for me, the song shines a light on a crucial subject, the pressures put on women today especially in the music industry.
What’s interesting is there has been equal praise and criticism of the effort particularly the video, ironically proving her words – it can be tough being a woman especially if you’re in the public eye and more especially if you have a “feminist” viewpoint.
At the end of the day, Lily has always liked to stand out and she obviously wants to sell records but I still admire her for discussing these issues and getting everyone else thinking and talking about them as well.
What do you think?
