Lily Allen: ‘Kanye West amused by ‘Sheezus’ album title’

Singer's third album is named in homage to last year's 'Yeezus'

Lily Allen has said that Kanye West is amused by the fact she named her new album ‘Sheezus’.

Allen marked her return to the pop music world with the release of the album last week (May 5). The album features the singles ‘Hard Out Here’, ‘Air Balloon’ and ‘Our Time’ and its name is a play on the title of Kanye West’s 2013 album, ‘Yeezus’.

Earlier this year Allen expressed worry that Kanye West might react negatively to her referencing his work.

However, Allen recently met with the rapper and his fiancée, Kim Kardashian, at the Met Gala in New York and was relieved to discover that he was happy with the name. “I’m a really big fan of Kanye’s so it was a little nod to him,” she said during an appearance on The Today Show yesterday. “He hadn’t heard it, it came out the day after, but he thought it was funny. And Kim said, ‘I’m the real Sheezus.'”

Meanwhile, Allen also revealed recently that she turned down a cameo appearance in popular fantasy show, Game Of Thrones when she was asked to play the sister of Theon, who is played by her real life brother, Alfie Allen. She backed out when she realised that the storyline involved incest and would involve her filming sex scenes with her relative.
