Lily Allen - Hard Out Here {Watch This!!}

I won't dwell, but I'm all for constructive conversation that won't make anyone feel uncomfortable, but bring attention to things that should be addressed. Another big cause behind the creation of That Fashion Chick, LLC is Women Empowerment.  Women have forgotten how to be ladies and use our power instead of being men's objects for their own personal use {not man bashing lol, ijs}. I  have a daughter so I am always conscience about the message I put out there for young women.

Now, having said that UK singer, Lily Allen made a satire video 'Hard Out Here' that addresses how women are objectified.

Some lyrics:

Some time it's hard to find the words to say
I'll go ahead and say them anyway,
Forget your balls and grow a pair of tits
It's hard, it's hard, it's hard out her for a bitch

I was first like whaaaat is this now?!?, but I listened while I watched and I say kudos to you Lily Allen...I get it, she did it her visual way and I don't think it's racist. Hip Hop artist are the new rock will mostly see this kind of imagery with them.

I personally think its gotten way out of hand and it's not art exactly...not to me. I will just say men need to not forget they came from a woman.

In the words of the late-great Tupac Shakur {a different kind of rock star}:

And since we all came from a woman
Got our name from a woman and our game from a woman
I wonder why we take from our women
Why we rape our women, do we hate our women?
I think it's time to kill for our women
Time to heal our women, be real to our women
And if we don't we'll have a race of babies
That will hate the ladies, that make the babies

-Keep Ya Head Up

Watch This!!
