Lily Allen Confirms Kanye West Riff in Album Title: Sheezus

Lilly Allen has confirmed, while talking to Graham Norton on his late night talk show, that her new album will be called Sheezus. She also admitted the title is a slight not to Kanye West’s Yeezus, calling it a “confident” choice.

"It's a confident title choice - and a little nod to Kanye West," explained Allen while appearing on the Graham Norton Show. ‘It's Not Me, It's You’ and ‘Alright, Still’ became certified triple-platinum albums in the UK when they sold over 900k copies, so Allen will he hoping her confident choice translates into a matching performance.

Her comeback was marked by her appearance on the John Lewis Christmas advert, a popular fixture in the festive marketing space. She covered Keane’s ‘Somewhere Only We Know’ while a friendly bear and a hair provided a touching backdrop. And while Allen’s hiatus coming to an end has heralded some critical acclaim, it hasn’t been without controversy.

The latest saw Radio 1 DJ Fearne Cotton accuse her of blanking her at the Brit Awards. "Lily Allen blanked me last night. Five times. She blanked me 5 times in a row," Cotton told Nick Grimshaw on Radio 1. "I don't hate her. I got on with her really well last time she was here. We were in a great place. We talked about the kids. So I thought, 'Oh, I'll say hi at the BRITs.' [But] she looked through me like a pane of glass."

Allen has denied claim she blanked Cotton, though, saying: "I did not blank you. That is simply not true. I didn't see you or your husband. Why couldn't you just come over [and] say hi yourself?"
