Lily backed by Jameela

Nov 16 2013, 4:57pm CST | by Bang Showbiz

Lily Allen is being backed by radio presenter Jameela Jamil over racism accusations.

The 28-year-old singer, whose latest video for her comeback 'Hard Out Here' features a group of black women jiggling their bottoms, hit back saying she did not choose the dancers because of their skin colour - and now Jameela is defending her.

The Radio 1 chart show host wrote on her blog: "I can count four black girls and three white girls, not to mention Lily, who is fully involved in all of the licking, flicking and twerking.

"It is almost racist to discount the girls who aren't black. It's just a bunch of women from all backgrounds dancing provocatively as they have for years."

The 27-year-old also doesn't believe the video used female exploitation as "shock value in the guise of satire".

She said: "The whole video is such an obvious and outrageous parody. She is merely making the obvious point that women are exploited in music videos. Which of course they are," Jameela mentioned Nelly's 'Hot' and Ludacris's 'Area Codes' videos as existing examples.

She added: "Some of you say that she has further perpetuated the problem by again sexualising girls and having them all twerking in slow motion with champagne pouring down their lithe bodies.

"But how else can you show what you are revolting against, without SHOWING IT?"

Jameela further argued: "When we watch films about murder and kidnapping, we know that we are being shown the horror of an act. We don't expect Liam Neeson to just sit there for two hours and describe how bad it is... We need to SEE it. For impact."

Quotables: Lily Allen's Full of Crap (Literally)

Jul 28 2014 8:00am CDT | Source: Fish Wrapper

"I just eat a lot of crisps, I'm not really eating a lot of proper meals [while touring] ... only when I'm able to get to a restaurant." --Lily Allen on how she lost so much weight over the last few years -- "crisps" are the UK equivalent to potato chips for those not in the know. To be fair, she also credits dancing, because she's, you know, on tour. As if that didn't sound unhealthy enough she, ...

It's time to feel sad and sorry and maybe just a little bit embarrassed for Lily Allen, guys, because she went and said a thing. Because, in case you didn't know, her latest album, Sheezus, didn't do incredibly well. It didn't do horribly by any means -- in its opening week, it was number one in the UK and number 12 in the U.S. -- but apparently it didn't do as well as Lily had hoped. And that's why she came out and b ...

Taylor Swift’s Manhattan Morning Coffee Grab

Jul 17 2014 12:36pm CDT | Source: GossipCenter

Looking for a caffeinated boost, Taylor Swift dropped by a New York City Starbucks location for some freshly-brewed coffee on her way to the gym on Wednesday (July 16). The “Should’ve Said No” singer was breathtaking in a printed shirt dress with a belt and bright red lipstick as she carried her cup out the door (apparently she used the fake name Jenna while ordering). In a new interview, fun guitarist Jack Antonoff told GQ that he thinks Taylor is as amazing as the late King of Pop. ...
