Have you heard Lily Allen's "Fuck You" from her new album, It's Not Me, It's You? The song is an angry rant (sung sweetly) against homophobes, racists, and warmongers. She's not turning the other cheek, and that's what makes the tune so damn fun. Listen (lyrics below):



Look inside, look inside your tiny mind
And look a bit harder
'Cause we’re so uninspired
So sick and tired
Of all the hatred you harbor

So you say it’s not okay to be gay
Well I think you’re just evil
You’re just some racist who can’t tie my laces
Your point of view is medieval

Fuck you, fuck you very very much
'Cause we hate what you do
And we hate your whole crew
So please don’t stay in touch

Fuck you, fuck you very very much
'Cause your words don’t translate
And it’s getting quite late
So please don’t stay in touch

Do you get, do you get a little kick out of being small-minded?
You want to be like your father
It’s approval you’re after
Well that’s not how you’ll find it

Do you, do you really enjoy living a life that’s so hateful
'Cause there’s a hole where your soul should be
You’re losing control of it
And it’s really distasteful

Fuck you, fuck you very very much
'Cause we hate what you do
And we hate your whole crew
So please don’t stay in touch

Fuck you, fuck you very very much
'Cause your words don’t translate
And it’s getting quite late
So please don’t stay in touch

Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you
Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you
Fuck you

You say, you think we need to go to war
Well you're already in one
'Cause it's people like you
That need to get slew
No one wants your opinion

Fuck you, fuck you very very much
'Cause we hate what you do
And we hate your whole crew
So please don’t stay in touch

Fuck you, fuck you very very much
'Cause your words don’t translate
And it’s getting quite late
So please don’t stay in touch

Fuck you, fuck you
Fuck you, fuck you
Fuck you, fuck you

Remember Sharon and Fred, those bizarre yet lovable entrepreneurs who offered their video-making services to the world? (Check out their unintentionally hilarious/borderline genius videos here and here.) In a cosmic stroke that laughs in the face of improbability, Sharon and Fred happen to be friends with Lily Allen and made a video to promote her BBC variety series, Lily Allen and Friends. Again, inspired moments abound, but my favorite part is Sharon and Fred's stiff role-playing in the middle. "Great idea!" Watch:
