Lily Allen Hard Out Here Making Of Video Released, Less Controversially Admits She Can’t Dance


London: Lily Allen has posted on YouTube showing the making of her recent controversial video for ‘Hard Out Here’. In it she admits she is not a good dancer and learns how to Twerk.

Allen’s current Top 30 Asia single, a cover of Keane’s ‘Somewhere Only We Know’, is being used on a very successful advert in the UK for the high street department store John Lewis. However, it’s her own self-written track, ‘Hard Out Here’, which has been courting controversy for featuring close-ups of it’s gyrating semi-naked female singers. The singer, who is famous for her straight talking and ability to grab the media’s attention, says the video is aimed at the male dominated music industry and at videos such as Robin Thicke’s ‘Blurred Lines’. 

Lily Allen's outrageous phrase is a clear pop at Robin Thicke's Blurred Line video.

The British singer is back after a 4 year break during which she had two children. This is mentioned in the lyrics that refer to her weight and the pressure placed on women by the industry and media to conform.

Recently the wider subject of women in music has been in the spotlight due to the increasing frequency of naked flesh being seen in videos and the question of whether female popstars are under more pressure than men to reveal-all in order to sell their music. Artists such as Miley Cyrus and 2NE1’s CL have recently been filmed completely naked in their recent videos.
