British singer Lily Allen has no plans of renaming her next album, Sheezus, and instead has stood behind the Kanye West-inspired LP title.
Allen jumped onto her Twitter page to fend off critics and defend the Yeezus-like name.
“It’s an homage, not a piss take. #SHEEZUS,” Allen tweeted with artwork of Sheezus’ Spring 2014 release date.
“#SHEEZUS is getting in the bath now, and saying bye bye to the internet till Monday, when business will resume. http://www.lilyallenmusic.com/sheezus/” (Lily Allen’s Twitter)
Earlier in the month, Allen revealed she would name her forthcoming album Sheezus.
Lilly Allen has confirmed, while talking to Graham Norton on his late night talk show, that her new album will be called Sheezus. She also admitted the title is a slight not to Kanye West’s Yeezus, calling it a “confident” choice. “It’s a confident title choice – and a little nod to Kanye West,” explained Allen while appearing on the Graham Norton Show. ‘It’s Not Me, It’s You’ and ‘Alright, Still’ became certified triple-platinum albums in the UK when they sold over 900k copies, so Allen will he hoping her confident choice translates into a matching performance.

The 12 Years a Slave director has nothing but kind words for Kim Kardashian‘s other half. “We talk all the time,” McQueen gushed to us exclusively at tonight’s 66th Annual Directors Guild Awards in L.A. “He’s a very lovely man. A lovely man.” McQueen played coy when asked if the they have plans to work together in the future, whether it be for one of McQueen’s movies or West’s music videos. “I don’t know,” he said. “I mean, we’re working on a friendship.” (E!

Back in late November, Def Jam Records co-founder Russell Simmons wrote a blog post about Ye’s genius characteristics.
“We will no longer be lost in the world and we will survive in this America. I believe these truths to be self-evident. That is what Kanye West told me on a cold morning in New York City just seven days ago. It is his genius, his tenacity, his creativity, his relentlessness and his madness, that will allow us all to one day have the ability to touch the sky.” (Global Grind)
