Lily Allen’s new song and video “Air Balloon” is a huge hit in our house where it’s been requested by my two and three quarters year old daughter 100 times. Takko and I like it too. I know she’s got kind of a MIA thing happening right now but it’s all working. Lily proves to be a master of trashy clashing in her outfit choice; here mixing sparkly gold wedge sandals with jean cutoffs, a sequined white mesh top over a tropical colored bikini top and… are those strips of denim in her pigtails!? Ballsy. Or to harken back to the “Hard Out Here” clip, titsy. Whatevs. Lily fucking owns the whole thing. My daughter loves the zebras, the myrawwrrs! (cheetahs) and the mushrooms that grow toward the end. I admire how the director(s) put the viewer in the POV of the camera as if it were some kind of benevolent alien visitor that Lily playfully pitches skyward as it spins and dances around her. The final shot is… well, see post title.
