Rumor has it that Lily Allen is calling her newest album Sheezus.
The Brit singer has reportedly said that her album, which doesn’t have a set release date but is supposedly due out sometime this year, will be titled Sheezus, a name that she called “a confident title choice and a little nod to Kanye West,” on BBC One’s The Graham Norton Show.
Confident indeed, as West was the one facing charges after allegedly attacking a photographer in July of last year. It seems Allen is pretty fearless in her jab at the rap star, whose most recent release, titled Yeezus, debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart and sold 327,000 copies in its first week.
Sheezus has not been officially confirmed by Allen’s reps as the albums official title, and since there’s currently no official release date either, we’re wondering if this isn’t some sort of publicity stunt made to garner press for Allen’s third full length release. Or maybe she’s just looking for a reaction from the super famous rap star? We’re not exactly sure.
So far there’s been no word from The Louis Vuitton Don on how he feels about Sheezus. He might be too busy in Kanye Land, the possibly fictional place where novelist Bret Easton Ellis claimed their new film project resides (Read about that adventure here), or maybe he’s preoccupied with making sure everyone knows that Beyonce’s video was the best of all time! Either way, we’ll anxiously await West’s response to the album title.
