Lily Allen Explains Why Women Are Their Own Worst Enemy
In the interview, Allen opens up about her first single, "Hard Out Here," which promotes a pro-feminist message, addressing society's views on women while poking fun at Robin Thicke and twerking.
"It just seemed like a good one to start with," she told ShortList. "I wasn't trying to write a think-piece, it just evolved. It wasn't a big attempt to tackle anything."
When asked if things are changing when it comes to the judgement of women, she said things are much the same, but she doesn't feel that men are the enemy.
"I think women are the enemy. I know that when I'm sitting in a restaurant and a really beautiful woman walks in, who's skinny, I instinctively think, 'Oh she's really skinny and beautiful and I'm really fat and ugly.' Every man I speak to always says they find that kind of woman gross, and they prefer a bit more meat on their ladies," she said. "So it's more of a competitive thing. It's weird. It's just really unhealthy and we're our own worst enemy. We should stop being so horrible to each other."
In talking about the title track to her forthcoming album, Sheezus, she opened up about name dropping Katy Perry and Rita Ora as well as addressing women in the music scene. Read what she had to say here.
