Lily Allen declares “the game is changing,” in her colorful, new video for her latest single Sheezus. And girl, she’s right.

Allen’s message in the song is strong a clear she doesn’t like being compared to her female contemporaries:

“I don’t like being compared to other people because I’m quite aware that there are people who are far more talented and have better singing voices than me. I don’t like being put in the same category as people because we have the same genitals and boobs. Nobody is going to write ‘Lily Allen vs. Ed Sheeran.’ It just doesn’t happen.”

The British pop star name-checks Rihanna, Katy PerryBeyoncé, Lorde and Lady Gaga in the song’s chorus:

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-O, 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

Allen told Rolling Stone Magazine the song is ultimately about unity, “I want all of them to be Sheezus, and I want to be Sheezus too.”
