Lily Allen goes ‘Hard’ at Miley

NEED TO KNOW
  • Allen goes after Cyrus’ twerking in new music video
  • Allen also spoofs the objectification of women in music
  • Meghan McCain joins Showbiz Tonight to talk about Lily Allen’s Miley slam

 

British pop singer Lily Allen isn’t the first one to slam Miley Cyrus for her twerking fascination. But Lily’s Miley slam might be the harshest, and funniest, we’ve seen thus far! The new video for Allen’s song, “Hard Out Here,” gleefully tweaks Miley’s twerking; it features a group of scantily clad dancers shaking their moneymakers in a fashion that gets more (intentionally) ridiculous by the minute. And as if Allen’s intended target isn’t clear enough in the video, she made it crystal clear with a tweet that read: “Which member of the Cyrus family is currently courting controversy over her twerking antics?”

But Miley can take solace in the fact that she’s not Allen’s only target. Allen’s “Hard Out Here” video takes more than one shot at Miley’s VMA twerk partner, Robin Thicke, and his controversial video for “Blurred Lines.” And Allen takes aim at the entire music industry’s treatment of women. She sings, “Don't need to shake my ass for you 'cause I've got a brain.”

But are Allen’s shots warranted? Or are they, to quote one of her other hits, “Not Fair?” Meghan McCain, no stranger to telling it like it is, joins us to talk about Allen’s musical broadside as well as some other issues – including Meghan’s new Pivot TV docu-series, “Raising McCain,” and her famous dad.  Watch Showbiz Tonight at 6 p.m. ET & 11 p.m. ET/PT.
