    How random and unexpected! The song and video are both actually AMAZING. I was worried that she would tone down things after having her kids, but I shouldn't have been worried!

    It's hard out here for a B!TCH

    I'm in love with this, so excited for the album now!!

    So much mockery of current pop culture in one song!

    The repeated use of bitch, twerking, autotune etc etc

    Brilliant video, the song is good but I'm not keen on the production even though I'm guessing she's making a point with how generic that sounds as well

    I cannot see anything but great comments here - incredible. This is really great, inspired even.

    Apparently it might be out to download Sunday, two No.1s in a row?

    Definitely the pop song of the year. I really thought Wrecking Ball had it in the bag.

    Wow, this came out of nowhere!

    Just had a listen...hilarious. I can't @ people who don't get that she's taking the piss out of modern pop culture + society's obsession with how you look/how much you weigh etc. I'm sure some people will read into this and twist it for their own meaning though.

    This is funny and all but how does this HELP her career.

    As a song it's not a good mockery song, I mean Eminem does the same this and the song has that classic feel about it. Stupid girls is still playable still this is just THERE.


    I am sure this is a buzz single so no need to worry but yea, sorry this is unnecessary

    This is just great! It really mocks the current pop culture. Purposely a lot of twerking, the obvious product placement of that Fujifilm camera. I love it. Lily can do no wrong in my eyes. <3

    Hmm it's a little too "hey i'm so much more sophisticated than those pop bitches yeah i am so cool" but still nice, just a little too obvious. The auto-tune in the chorus is annoying and almost ruins the whole song.

    This literally came from nowhere. I love the verses but not a fan of the chorus.

    Don't like it, refrain sounds like Rebecca Black (way too much autotune + in a unpleasant way) and she is such a has been. ZzzZzz
    & she says she doesn't think she is better than them, but why does she act like that then? Don't play with the big ones if u are afraid of them.

    I noticed that straight away, the only bit I still can get is cleaning the wheel trims in the sink. Unless that's what some people do??

    I feel the autotune is also used to take a piss on the current popmusic

    It's that for sure. And the way she's doing stuff, like she's being obligated.

    I do think P!nk's Stupid Girls video was definitely more hilarious as Pink is hilarious doing her funny acting

    But it's been 7 years since Pink did that, we needed someone to make fun of all of it again

    Someone criticised her for only having black dancers in the video and she's responded with this:

    2. If anyone thinks that after asking the girls to audition, I was going to send any of them away because of the colour of their skin, they're wrong.

    3. The message is clear. Whilst I don’t want to offend anyone. I do strive to provoke thought and conversation. The video is meant to be a lighthearted satirical video that deals with objectification of women within modern pop culture. It has nothing to do with race, at all.

    4. If I could dance like the ladies can, it would have been my arse on your screens; I actually rehearsed for two weeks trying to perfect my twerk, but failed miserably. If I was a little braver, I would have been wearing a bikini too, but I do not and I have chronic cellulite, which nobody wants to see. What I’m trying to say is that me being covered up has nothing to do with me wanting to disassociate myself from the girls, it has more to do with my own insecurities and I just wanted to feel as comfortable as possible on the shoot day.

    5. I'm not going to apologise because I think that would imply that I’m guilty of something, but I promise you this, in no way do I feel superior to anyone, except paedophiles, rapists murderers etc., and I would not only be surprised but deeply saddened if I thought anyone came away from that video feeling taken advantage of,or compromised in any way.
