Lily Allen sighted leaving BBC Radio Two on April 25, 2014 in London, England.

Lily Allen blew up the Billboard Twitter Trending 140 chart at 11am ET this morning, hitting No. 1 . This was in response to her fans buzzing on Twitter about the release of her music video “URL Badman” on YouTube, July 2.

 “URL Badman” appears on Allen’s album “Sheezus”, which debuted on the Billboard 200 at No. 12 the week of May 24. In the video, illusionistic and colorful visuals mesh well alongside Allen’s notable lyrics and bass drops. 

Allen originally wrote the lyrics to “URL Badman” in response to criticism from bloggers about her previous song “Hard Out Here,” which drew heat from critics who accused her of being misogynistic.

In “URL Badman” the singer says she gets "vexed if you don’t appreciate" her. But her fans on Twitter clearly do.
