Okay, so everyone seems to be hailing Lily Allen’s new song as a feminist anthem and if you wanna do that then that’s cool whatever it’s not for me to decide. But if you want a feminist song/video tackling misogyny and racism then you should definitely watch and listen to That’s Alright by Laura Mvula. Not only is it a good, catchy, singalong song that tells you it’s okay to be who you are, but the video itself demonstrates how black people in the media and entertainment industries are used as props, simple entertainment for white people.
I especially like when she gets to the chorus and she’s singing “Who made you the centre of the universe?” at the all-white audience. A really brilliant yet underrated song and video.
I LOVE HER SOUND
LITERALLY FROM THE FIRST NOTE
This is my jam!
I spend $400 on a video editing program and this is what I do with it. Money well spent.
Witches who can only cast spells through rhymed verse locked in an epic rap battle.
Double double, toil and trouble
I’ll make ya mama’s cauldron bubble
Eye of newt and wing of bat
I’ll show yo mama where it at
Harper cries tis time, tis time
You ain’t a witch ‘less you can rhyme!

- Having to deal with boys going ‘Oh someones on their period’
- When you stand up its like a…
every girl in the universal regardless of ethnic background, class, sexuality, etc knows the universal mating call of the straight male
When they said it might sing, this wasn’t exactly what I had in mind.
I think my dinner is possessed.
THAT IS NOT A “HUMMING NOISE”
I THOUGHT THIS WAS THE GUY BEHIND THE CAMERA YELLING!
