Lily Allen - Lily Allen: I won't apologise for music video

Picture:

Lily Allen insists she won't apologise for her 'Hard Out Here' video.

The 29-year-old singer was slammed by critics for having a number of black girls twerking in the promo for her song but was adamant it wasn't a racist video.

She told Q Magazine: ''I've never apologised for it and I still won't because I don't think I did anything wrong.

''People on Twitter always say it's not the intent, it's the impact. Well, that's bulls*t.

''My whole make-up is about bringing inequality and injustice to the forefront, so when people said I was racist I was like, 'Noooo, that's not me', I thought, 'Oh my God, is it worth it? But of course it is.''

The track 'URL Badman' on Lily's new album 'Sheezus' which is about her dwelling on hostile tweets and she now doesn't have broadband at home.

She said: ''Before the internet, you wouldn't really know what people had to say. That's a luxury that I wish I had, but if it wasn't for the internet I probably wouldn't be here because of MySpace.''
