Lily Allen Takes on Internet Trolls in the Music Video for ‘URL Badman’
Lily Allen’s no stranger to the internet or online rage. She’s got her share of haters and let’s not forget she got her start on MySpace. Now she’s taking on the trolls with the music video for “URL Badman.”
She pretty much nails the anonymous world of online commenters with lyrics like “I’m a London white boy reppin’ ATL / keyboard warrior that can’t spell / I don’t like you, I think you’re worthless / I wrote a long piece about it up on my WordPress.”
“URL Badman” is the fourth single off Sheezus. In many ways, it’s the closest she’s gotten to the Lily Allen of Alright, Still and It’s Not Me, It’s You, spitting clever rhymes tearing apart perpetrators of modern crimes like sexism, hypocrisy, and now online trolling.
