Lily Allen hired six sexy dancers to Twerk in the video for her comeback song, 'Hard Out Here'.
Lily Allen hired six sexy dancers for her comeback video.
However, it is understood the video will be tongue-in-cheek and make references to Miley's Twerking in 'We Can't Stop', Robin's 'Blurred Lines' clip - which featured topless models - and Rihanna's numerous sexy videos.
A source told The Sun newspaper: ''Lily's back with a bang. Her plans have been closely guarded until now but she'll release a single before most people expected.
'''Hard Out Here' is a big pop single and her team expect it to be a massive hit - so Lily wanted a video that makes a statement.
''She hired six bikini-clad female dancers to twerk while pouring champagne over their bodies. It's a jab at music videos made by pop stars like Rihanna and Miley Cyrus.
''Lily stays covered up while the under-dressed girls dance around her. It's a video that will get a lot of people talking and announce in a big way that Lily's back.''
A lot has changed for the 28-year-old star since she released her last album, 'It's Not Me, It's You' in 2009, with her marrying Sam Cooper and becoming a mother to daughters Ethel, 23 months and Marnie, nine months, but she insists her new album isn't a ''mum'' record.
She said: ''It's not an earnest 'I'm a mum' kind of record. It's empowering. There's some feminist vibes going on. It's the same old me with a bit of swearing going on.''
Many ticket-holders couldn't get into the O2 Arena show on Tuesday night (September 19th) because they didn't bring photo ID to match their booking.
An album re-release, a new song and a documentary mark the singer's legacy this year.
The actor plays the titular hero in the forthcoming adaptation.
