Yes, the returning Allen just announced she's named her new Album Sheezus after that other album ending in "eezus." "It's a confident title choice," she said while announcing the album title on the Graham Norton Show. "And a little nod to Kanye West."
Indeed, it is, though there are a few implications here. First off, we're taking this as a feminist "nod," the female version of Yeezus (appropriate given the direction of her video “Hard Out Here”). The other side, however, is the inevitable Kanye reaction. He's a cagey one, that West, and his response could be a two-hour rapped, auto-tuned rant about how she's disrespecting him and his art or a smiling recognition of her charming wit. (Yeezus was, after all, the most buzzed-about and angry album of the summer.) Let's hope that game recognizes game, and it's all smiles and high fives.
Sheezus drops next month. (Cosmo UK)
