Lily Allen Throws Shade at Lady Gaga, Name Drops Beyoncé, Rihanna and Lorde in "Sheezus"—Watch Now!

Step aside, Queen Bey, Lily Allen is looking to take your crown in her latest single "Sheezus."

The 28-year-old pop star calls out a number of top performers including Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Beyoncé and Lorde and demands that the hitmakers hand over their throne as she croons "give me that crown, bitch" on her most recent hit from her third album of the same name.

Allen sings "let me be your leader" as she wears a hoodie jacket and dances to psychedelic lights in the accompanying music video before she switches up her look to give a shout-out to music's biggest names.

Wearing a black bob wig with blunt bangs and an orange dress with a plunging neckline, the mother of two sings, "RiRi isn't scared of Katy Perry's roaring/ Queen Bey's gone back to the drawing/ Lorde smells blood yeah, she's about to slay you/ Kid ain't one to f--k with when she's only on her debut/ We're all watching Gaga, LOL haha, dying for the art so really she's a martyr/ Second best will never cut it for the divas/ Give me that crown, bitch/ I wanna be Sheezus"

While the lyrics may seem like a diss to the top divas, Allen spoke with MTV News last month and said that the single is meant to empower female pop stars to unite instead of compete with one another.

"Well the first verse of 'Sheezus' is about me reentering the music scene and how kinda scary that is. And I guess the chorus talks about other people who exist in the scene and that women tend to be kinda played off against each other and it's sorta sold to us or the way I read it is there is a queen and everyone else is in there kind of slip stream or whatever," she explained. "And I guess what it's trying to say is that we can all be Sheezus."

This isn't the first time Lily Allen has called out some of music's biggest names in one of her tongue-in-cheek songs. She previously threw shade at both Robin Thicke and Miley Cyrus in her hit "Hard Out Here."
