In the We Kid You Not territory for today comes the news that Lily Allen‘s upcoming third LP will be called Sheezus. Yes, Sheezus. As in an homage to/poking fun at the over-inflated sense of self-importance (maybe I’m reading into things there) of Kanye West‘s 2013 LP Yeezus, the way Allen’s recent video for “Hard Out Here” jabbed at, well, everyone on the music scene in modern times.
According to Glamour UK, Allen reveals the title of her new album during an interview on tonight’s episode of The Graham Norton Show. “It’s a confident title choice — and a little nod to Kanye West,” Lily said to Graham, according to Glamour, just before serving up “Air Balloon” live.
Lily Allen has never been one to keep her tongue out of her cheek. And, hey — she promised her new album would make people angry, right? That said, the Graham Norton episode hasn’t aired yet, and maybe she doesn’t, after all, say her album is called Sheezus. Who knows? But, honestly, it probably is.
So, what do you think of the record’s title?
