Lily Allen 'Sheezus' by RUFF MERCY
Lily Allen reflects on re-entering the pop game and getting to grips with all the other pop-diva ladies, and aiming to be top girl - or, as she calls it, Sheezus.
And nothing really distracts from this slightly Gaga-baiting message in the video by Russ Murphy - aka RUFFMERCY – who enhances Lily's performance with his trademark hand-drawn overlaying animation.
Russ's work has graced numerous hip-hop videos in the past year or so - quite simply it works really well with performers trading in wordplay and verbal wit. That's why it works well here too. And although Lily gets a bit of a hip-hop makeover too, this is certainly a breakthough of the cool RUFFMERCY style through to a new audience.
