Watch Lily Allen Blast Bloggers with ‘URL Badman’ Video

By Scott T. Sterling

Lily Allen is so over Internet hate.

The polarizing U.K. pop star takes aim at online critics who usually have her in their cross-hairs with the release of the wildly surreal music video for “URL Badman,” the latest single from her most recent album, Sheezus.

Allen pulls no punches lyrically, caustically ripping into bloggers who exist “at home in [their] parents’ basement” and dream of someday writing for Vice.

Singing from the blogger’s perspective, she paints a grim picture of someone obsessed with assumed arbiters and symbols of cool that include websites, magazines, clothing labels and such artists as Tyler, the Creator, the xx and Kanye West.

The singer truly exacts her revenge in the video, showing up in their bedrooms where she turns them into rainbow-colored digital smears with her withering gaze.

Allen is set to kick off her North American tour this fall, with the first date set for Sept. 9 in Miami, Fla. The tour wraps up on Oct. 10 with a show at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles.
