Allen gave the crowd at legendary London nightclub G-A-Y a performance to remember Saturday night. Each song involved a costume change, presumably as a pointed reminder of those stars whose tour costumes are more memorable than their songs. Allen also surrounded herself with scantily clad dancers in a move that echoed her controversial "Hard Out Here" video/"Blurred Lines" parody.
The 28-year-old saved the best for last, however. For her encore, she appeared on stage in a shaggy blonde wig and a sheer lace dress over a black string bikini. A male dancer then poured a bucket of water over her writhing body as she lip-synched to "Drunk in Love." Anyone who saw Beyoncé's steamy, soaked Grammys performance will recognize the reference. Yeah, awkward.
Allen's always been outspoken about how pop stars play up their sexy image, so it's not actually that shocking to see her take aim at one of the most seductive performances of the year. On the other hand, isn't this schtick getting old? We're starting to miss the good ol' days when Allen was telling British Prime Minister David Cameron to "f**k" off. But, maybe that's just because we have a soft spot for Queen Bey.
