Lily Allen Responds to Criticism of New Video
The NSFW clip for the song addresses society's views on women while poking fun at Robin Thicke and twerking. While the video has been called scathing by some, Allen took to Twitter to address some of the issues the video has brought up, such as the ethnicity of her dancers.
"The video is meant to be a lighthearted satirical video that deals with objectification of women within modern pop culture. It has nothing to do with race, at all," she wrote.
Allen bullet-pointed her thoughts on the video in a post on TwitLonger titled Privilege, Superiority and Misconceptions. She ends her open letter by letting her critics know she has no intention of apologizing.
1. If anyone thinks for a second that I requested specific ethnicities for the video, they're wrong.
2. If anyone thinks that after asking the girls to audition, I was going to send any of them away because of the colour of their skin, they're wrong.
