Lily Allen too offensive for airplay

LAST UPDATED // Wednesday, 23 April 2014 14:43 Written by // James Findlay

British singer-songwriter Lily Allen has released a video for her the title track off her new album Sheezus, which has been deemed too offensive for radio.

Allen told Rolling Stone magazine the single probably won’t be released as a single because “the word 'period' … is really offensive to people, even though half the world has to deal with it once a month.”

Having said that, you never know what will happen in the music world as her single ‘Hard Out Here’ played home to the word ‘bitch’ 72 times and made it’s way into the top 10 in the UK and top 20 here in Australia.

The track makes mention of pop stars such as Katy Perry, Rihanna, Beyonce and Lorde. It also pays homage to Kanye West.

There are bound to be a few surprises in the outspoken artist’s upcoming album due to be released in Australia early next month, with her track ‘L8 CMMR’ making ears prick after featuring on the latest series of Lena Dunham’s, Girls.

Watch the video for Sheezus below.
