Doesn’t this chick have a radio show to present?

BBC Radio 1 presenter and former T4 host Jameela Jamil has posted a blog in defence of her mate Lily Allen, who earlier last week released the controversial video to her new single Hard Out Here (Click here to read all about it).

Presenter now turned racism analyst/expert Jameela had this to say in her blog post titled ‘Another Bloody Blog About ‘Hard Out Here’.

Every morning this week I’ve fallen out of my bed, grabbed my phone, and waded through my twitter feed expecting to read about the Typhoon which has devastated so many tens and thousands of people. It made sense to me that it would dominate all other topics of conversation. 

I was wrong. Instead I have spent the entire week hearing of Lily Allen’s new controversial video. Hard Out Here. Everyone’s having their say. It’s (bafflingly) splitting the nation. Few people aren’t weighing in. 

I personally thought the song and video were well executed delivering a straight forward message. A good point well made. I saw little scope for such mass debate, so I was curious… and I decided to read. 

The moment I almost threw my laptop out of the window was when I knew it was time to say something. 

Let us start with the Racism debate. I have read Newspaper articles, at least 40 blogs and countless tweets in defence of the “poor, nameless, voiceless black girls gyrating in the video.” SORRY?

Well having watched the video several times… I can count 4 black girls and three white girls, not to mention Lily, who is fully involved in all of the licking, flicking and twerking. Not to mention the only one to perform Bananalingus. 

Exhibit A) Non black dancer being photographed in her underwear.

Exhibit B) Non black dancer being spanked on all fours. Nobody appears to be concerned for her. 

Exhibit C) Non black dancer with black dancer sharing what I assume is supposed to be “Tips”

So, I repeat… SORRY???

It is almost racist to discount the girls who aren’t black.

Jameela who along with her many supporters believe they are in a position to tell others what we  should/should not deem as racist or offensive, attempts to make the point that Caucasian dancers are also featured in the video. But if you watch the video those dancers (and Lily) are modestly dressed in comparison (see above) and are rarely seen, yet the black dancers (modern day Sarah Baartmans – watch her tragic story here) receive the most screen time and have been instructed to “twerk” for dear life (people tend to forget that in the society we live in women of African descent and Caucasian women are generally not treated  the same). The decision to show them in this light was a deliberate one. Lily and the director had the agenda set long before those foolish and naive dancers agreed to take part in this level of buffoonery.

And for the record, I don’t actually buy mockney Lily’s reasoning for making this video. The reality is she was no longer ‘relevant’ so decided to rip a page out of Miley Cyrus’ book.

Anyway back to her mate Jameela. Everyone is entitled to their opinion including BBC Radio’s resident clothes horse. But really Jameela “I wrote this in your honour”, could you sound any more licky licky? But don’t worry,  job well done. I’ am sure you and the dancers featured in Lily’s dubious music video will all receive Christmas party invitations this year for your ‘services’.

In response to Jameela’s blog post ‘quote of the day’ has to go to Mad News reader Wow.

She sounds stupid for writing the 41st blog in response/defence of Lily Allen video instead of writing a blog on the typhoon which has killed tens of thousands of people who are still in need. Maybe next time she should follow her own advice. And she is as blind as a bat.

Hahahahahahahahahaha. Oh Jameela you are funny.

    @wow Ha Ha, yes exactly.

    Anyway not surprised at her leap to defense, some of those former E4 presenters all seem to travel in the same circle together.

  4. And Jameela really needs to keep it real in her assessment of the entertainment industry, if it was not for her looks she may have never got the presenting opportunities she has had up until now.

  5. So her defence is, because there are two non black dancers in the video, it cant be deemed as racist. Next she’ll be saying “She can’t be racist, she’s got black mates!” Idiot!

  6. Miley Cyrus took to twerking because it was a cool black thing to do and break her away from that Disney princess image. Same reason she has been linked and connected more into that ‘black’ world now, having all those rappers singing and praising her name because they want the association too. It’s the same reason Lily Allen saw it fit to pick black girls to headline the twerking group and shake their wombs and intestines out. It wouldn’t look convincing and cool with white girls headlining the twerk because it’s not known as a white dance. While the black girls were shaking their buttocks off, the white girls were standing looking, or the camera man thought they were not cool enough to be caught on camera as the main twerkers.

    She should save the long pointless blog for those who really care and eat on the same plate as her.

  7. “Send to the next person who calls you racist or exploitive” – rah, she really thinks she has the definitive answer to all of Lilly Allen’s critics

  8. I don’t know why anyone would bother to read all newspaper articles, blogs and tweets about an artist’s song criticism unless they had some personal interest in it. Probably decided to write a blog on it, see the reaction and then have something to talk about on her radio show.

  9. Lol So Jameela has taken it upon herself to define what we can and can’t be offended by? What is and isn’t racist? Her blog was ridiculous and really did come across like arse licking with a dash of self interest.
    So because there are two white people in the video that means it isn’t racist? Because Ludacris has black girls dancing in his video too that means this isn’t racist?
    Hilarious.

  10. If she had strong lyricism she would not have had to resort to British satire in her video to compensate for the buffoonery in her weak lyrics.

  11. well jameela you surely can comment on what you want especially when it clearly lets people see how much of an uneducated fool you are when it comes to race relations socio demographic legacies of race. Even Aunt Jemima and Uncle Tom know the deal. You probably think Black Pete is a compliment I digress. She is basically saying she doesnt see it as racist and if you do you are racist because the white dancers who no one has noticed are not being objectified. What Jameela says matters none to me. Because in my life experiences even those who do not look like me can tell what’s going. just like yasmin ali-brown she cant be the mouth piece for black (African and African descent) people she can only offer an opinion that panders one way or the other.

  12. that last tweet has irked me. regardless if she dont care had to tweet her to not trivialise racism with such a flippant statement. Because you know one day racism gonna say hi to her in ways she has not experienced yet than she will be crying the loudest to say how racist this that and third was. massa is waiting to read all about it . kmt

    I OBJECT: “These half Indians and half English always think they are white. No sense of identity and stand for nothing”.

    I don’t know WHO these “half Indians and half English..which in itself sounds somewhat “Racist” people you are referring to are…but if your’e talking about Jameela, she is NOT “Mixed Race”. Pure British/Asian who has a SRONG sense of identity and stands for more things than I can name on this page!

  14. She stands for buffoonery. That’s one thing she stands for named. I don’t care whether you think what I said was racist or not, I am not here for your added buffoonery.
