Lily hits back at her critics in new music video.

Lily Allen has unveiled the music video for her new single URL Badman.

In the song, Lily hits back at her critics, particularly internet trolls and music bloggers.

The song includes lyrics such as "And when I'm a big boy I'm gonna write for Vice... I'm a URL Badman and you're dead to me 'cause I'm a broadband champion." She also refers to them as "keyboard warriors who can't spell."

The vibrant accompanying video lives up to the song's feisty lyrics as Lily is seen sitting behind a blogger as he writes in his bedroom. He soon turns into a multi-coloured smudge, while Lily dances around.

In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, the singer talked about what inspired her to write the track. She said, "I wrote that after I put out the video for Hard Out Here and everyone said I was racist.

"A lot of that negative stuff came from females and the feminist blogger scene. What really p*ssed me off was the misogynistic, hipster, male bloggers that went after me in a completely different way."
