Lily Allen topper…

2. februar 2009

Jeg har tidligere omtalt den engelske sangerinde Lily Allen, der – i mine ører – skiller sig ud fra den store mængde af tomgangs-mainsteam-pop. Noget af det, der fÃ¥r hende til at rage op over den boblende pophavregrød, er hendes tekster, der viser, at hun bag sit kønne ydre ogsÃ¥ har en hjerne, hun bruger til at tænke med. Lige nu ligger hun nr. 1 i England med sangen “The Fear” fra hendes andet album (“Its not me, it’s you”). Sangen er en slags anti-Madonna-Material-Girl-sang, hvor Allen pÃ¥ ironisk vis diskuterer sin frygt for, at verden er ved at blive et overfladisk tomt sted, hvor kun sponsorpenge betyder noget.

I want to be rich and I want lots of money
I don’t care about clever I don’t care about funny
I want loads of clothes and fuckloads of diamonds
I heard people die while they are trying to find them

I’ll take my clothes off and it will be shameless
‘Cuz everyone knows that’s how you get famous
I’ll look at the sun and I’ll look in the mirror
I’m on the right track yeah I’m on to a winner

[Chorus]
I don’t know what’s right and what’s real anymore
I don’t know how I’m meant to feel anymore
When do you think it will all become clear?
‘Cuz I’m being taken over by The Fear

Life’s about film stars and less about mothers
It’s all about fast cars cussing each other
But it doesn’t matter cause I’m packing plastic
and that’s what makes my life so fucking fantastic

And I am a weapon of massive consumption
and its not my fault it’s how I’m programmed to function
I’ll look at the sun and I’ll look in the mirror
I’m on the right track yeah we’re on to a winner

Chorus
I don’t know what’s right and what’s real anymore
I don’t know how I’m meant to feel anymore
When do you think it will all become clear?
‘Cuz I’m being taken over by The Fear

[Bridge]
Forget about guns and forget ammunition
Cause I’m killing them all on my own little mission
Now I’m not a saint but I’m not a sinner
Now everything’s cool as long as I’m getting thinner

[Chorus]
I don’t know what’s right and what’s real anymore
I don’t know how I’m meant to feel anymore
When do you think it will all become clear?
‘Cause I’m being taken over by fear

Videoen nedenfor er den “pæne”, “rene” version af sangen. Her synger hun ikke FUCKING FANTASTIC. Men det gør hun her. Den bornerte musikbranche og medierne har ikke ændret sig meget pÃ¥ det punkt… Fuck! Fuck! Fuck!
I det hele taget opfører og udtrykker Lily sig herligt politisk ukorrekt. Hun er åbenbart fløjtende ligeglad med, hvad medierne og borgerskabet mener. Her har Cheeky Lily fået The Mail til at løfte øjenbrynene på grund af et frisk outfit.
