Lily Allen Skewers Britney, Makes Out With Self In Messy New Video

3 comments

Lily Allen has been crazy, crazy busy. In the last couple of weeks, she's announced that the name of her new album is Sheezus, claimed feminism is a bad word, and even called her own music rubbish. Add on a spate of constant interviews and motherhood, and that's some serious, grade-A multitasking.

Her new video for "Our Time," too, has her spinning a lot of plates. Playing four, count 'em, four roles, she recreates everything that goes into a good (or bad) night out. In no particular order she drinks, smokes, barfs, fights (with herself), and makes out (again, with herself). She even dresses up like a hot dog and cries!

More than that, though, Allen is up to her old trick of skewering pop stars while acting like one herself. To the careful viewer, her three-role taxi ride is a crypto recreation of that magical night in 2006 when Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears, and Paris Hilton climbed into the heiress' Mercedes McLaren SLR and took Paris (the city) by storm. Look familiar? She may be a little late to the party on that one, but again, that Allen really knows how to balance her workload.
