Navigating Lily Allen's recent career moves is tricky business — and things are only getting more perplexing. The Brit singer unveiled her new music video for Sheezus on Tuesday, and just as eyebrow-raising as the song's moniker are the lyrics. Sounding off on pop star peers including Beyoncé, Lorde, Rihanna, Katy Perry, and Lady Gaga, Allen heaps praise on everyone although her Gaga commentary is a bit more cryptic:

"Ri-Ri isn't scared of Katy Perry's roaring/ Queen B's going back to the drawing/ Lorde smells blood, yeah, she's about to slay you/ Kid ain't one to fuck with when she's only on her debut/ We're all watching Gaga, L-O-L, haha/ Dying for the art, so really she's a martyr/ The second best will never cut it for the divas/ Give me that crown, bitch, I wanna be Sheezus"

On top of the name-checking, there's also mention of her menstrual cycle, which she knew would provide plenty of shock value.

"It's got the word 'period' in it, which is really offensive to people, even though half of the world has to deal with it once a month," she recently told Rolling Stone of the song. "I think that 'period' is going to be my 'surfboard' with Beyoncé. People will wear sweatshirts to my concerts that are just going to say period."

"I would have liked to see 'Sheezus' as a single, but it's not up-tempo enough," she told Rolling Stone recently. "It's also got the word 'period' in it, which is really offensive to people, even though half the world has to deal with it once a month. … I think that "period" is going to be my "surfboard" with Beyoncé. People will wear sweatshirts to my concerts that are just going to say 'period'."

The track's lyrics may be getting more buzz than the video itself, neither of which are for the faint of heart. Allen turns into a yellow-eyed, extraterrestrial version of herself wearing high-octane looks against trippy, kaleidoscope-print backgrounds. Look for her new LP Sheezus dropping May 6 and watch the video, below:
