Lily Allen’s new song ‘Hard Out Here' owns Blurred Lines.
Except for the fact that a white singer is still using black bodies, particularly black women, as accessories and oversexualised examples. You cannot fight misogyny using racism.
Guys omfg this needs to stop, you really always have something to complain about.
Tumblr is seriously creating a generation of moralists who have nothing positive to say about anyone.
What if she had used white females? Would she have been white washing? And what if white dancers were “twerking”? Would you talk about cultural appropriation?
Please take a look at the video and notice the little man trying to tell her and the dancers what to do: he plays an important part in the video.
He is playing those people in the music industry who tell female singers that they need to be sexy and stuff to be successful, and he is also the one guiding the dancers.
He criticises her for having the body of a mother of two, he tells the dancers how to move their ass, and also tells her what expressions to make while cleaning the wheel rim.
Listen to the words. They’re fucking good.
#no one is exploiting those black women EXCEPT FOR THE GUY WHO REPRESENTS THE MUSIC INDUSTRY
