Lily Allen Talks “Hard Out Here” Video Controversy & Miley Cyrus
Lily Allen created a big splash when she dropped her new single and video “Hard Out Here,” which clowns both the twerking epidemic that Miley Cyrus has capitalized upon all year and the sexy-women-as-props aesthetic of Robin Thicke — but for her part, at least, she says all’s well with Cyrus (if their cozy Instagram photo wasn’t proof enough).
The two met up while Allen was in Los Angeles last week, and as Allen explained to The Mirror: “I’d never met her before so I couldn’t say we are really great friends but I do really like Miley. She’s funny, witty and clever, I love what she does. I think her and Lorde’s album have had the most plays in my car this year. I never went on record saying the video was a direct pop at her — it wasn’t.”
As a matter of fact, a collaboration might even be in sight — if Cyrus’ schedule permits, that is.
Allen continued: “People have come up with so many conclusions about that video that if I had to explain each of them I’d be there for hours. So I didn’t feel the need to explain anything to her when it came out. Anyone who knows me, or follows me on Twitter, knows I love that girl more than anything. She’s probably way too busy for someone like me but yeah, I’d welcome the opportunity to work with her.”
Welp! So much for any reports of a feud.
