Lily Allen launches attack on body image as she parodies Miley Cyrus and Rihanna in brand new video

There's no denying that the pop industry is over-saturated with young pop stars gyrating in barely-there dresses.

And now Lily Allen has joined the ranks of Miley Cyrus and Rihanna as she wears a bondage-style outfit in her brand new video, surrounded by booty-shaking dancers... but don't worry, it's only a parody.

The pop star mother-of-two, who has just returned to the world of music, sends up the music industry in her controversial comeback video for new song Hard Out There.

While she might be mates with some of the singers she's impersonating, Lily seems keen to make some kind of statement with the funny new video - aimed at the music industry's attitude towards women.

Clearly wanting to express her opinion on the sexualisation of female popstars, Lily performs some provocative dance moved in on scene, wearing a sheer black top and skintight leggings.

She's surrounded by scantily clad dancers who twerk around her - in a clear parody of stars including Rihanna and Britney.

The video opens with a not-so-subtle attack on the industry's weight obsession - showing Lily getting liposuction to be the perfect size.



The singer explains that she's 'had two kids' while the man standing over her asks ''how does someone get like this?''

She then proceeds to take to the stage to give her best Rihanna/Miley/Britney impression - and it's HILARIOUS.


In one scene, Lily can be seen sucking provocatively on a banana while as a music industry exec shows her how to do it.

She also references the blatant product placement that takes place in music videos - showing off products including E-Lite cigarettes and Beats Audio.
