"Sheezus" as written by Lily Rose Beatrice Allen and Dacoury Dahi Natche....
Been here before, so I'm prepared
Not gonna lie though, I'm kinda scared
Lace up my gloves, I'm going in
Don't let my kids watch me when I get in the ring
I'll take the hits, roll with the punches
I'll get back up, it's not as if I've never done this
But then again, the game is changing
Can't just come back, jump on the mic and do the same thing
There goes the bell, I know that sound
I guess it's time for me to go another round
Now wish me luck, I'm gonna need it
I'll see you on the other side, if I'm still breathing

RiRi 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, ah-ha
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

I'm ready for all the comparisons
I think it's dumb and it's embarrassing
I'm switching off, no longer listening
I've had enough of persecution and conditioning
Maybe it's an instinct, we're only animal
Maybe it's healthy, maybe it's rational
It makes me angry, I'm serious
But then again, I'm just about to get my period
Periods, we all get periods
Every month, yo, that's what the theory is
It's human nature, another cycle
Be nice to me, I'll make you one of my disciples

RiRi 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, ah-ha
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

I am born again, now run along and tell
All your friends to come and join us
Give yourselves to me, I am your leader
Let me be Sheezus
Let me be Sheezus

I am born again, now run along and tell
All your friends to come and join us
Give yourselves to me, I am your leader
Let me be Sheezus

    My Interpretation(A full interpretation, verse by verse, this will be long)

    Personally I think the song is about how all the women of the music industry are constantly trying to be different in order to outdo the competition but in a sarcastic and ironic way, even the song title is sarcastic essentially referring to Kanye West's Yeezus.

    In the first verse she is talking about getting back into the music industry after starting a family, it's been about 2 or more years since we heard anything from this artist.

    Second verse, she is talking about negativity from fans of other artists, potentially Lady Gaga and the others that are mentioned in the song, aswell as the press also giving a negative outlook on artists trying to be different. "Can't just come back, jump on the mic, and do the same thing" is referring to the fact that the music industry is constantly changing and there are new ways of doing things each time.

    Third verse, talking about releasing an album or new material and about to join the battle against other artists to get to number one or be compared against other female artists, with the final line concluding that she may not still be going at the end due to all of the competition (sarcasm).

    Chorus:
    Rihanna - Not scared of competition with Katy Perry, two very different artists.

    Queen B (Beyonce) - Gone back to the drawing board thinking of new material to set her apart from the rest).

    Lorde - Brand new artist (On her debut), this line claims that you can expect bigger things from her and that one day she could be massive, so don't judge too soon.

    Gaga - Everybody's laughing at how "stupid" she can be sometimes with her ideas, when actually they're really creative and stand out from the rest, suggesting she may be a martyr as her life completely revolves around this religious kind of theme that she's created herself.

    "2nd best will never cut it for the divas" - Backs up my claim that all females in the music industry are competing against eachother to be different and potentially get to number one.

    "Give me that crown, bitch. I wanna be Sheezus." - Sarcastic bitchiness saying she wants to be the best and the most different in the music industry.

    Verse 4 - Again, backs up my claim about people striving to be better than everyone else in the music industry, claiming how stupid the entire competition is and people should just do what they want whether people like it or not, something Lily Allen does extensively!

    Verse 5 - A kind of thought process to decide whether it is right or wrong that this happening, and how people come up with all of these ideas. Also claiming that they're actually all the same people underneath and they all get periods which backs up that it is strictly only about females.

    [Chorus already explained]

    Verse 6 - Essentially saying that she has started in the music industry again and is sarcastically claiming she's back in the fight and sarcastically attempting to be the best in the music industry claiming that she wants the female version of Kanye West.

    This has nothing to do with any "Illuminati" conspiracies, Lily Allen isn't a part of the so called "Illuminati" and thus has written a sarcastic song regarding most of the artists that are commonly regarded to as "Illuminati members". However these aren't digs, but more like digs at people's interpretation of the people who are about the Illuminati theory.

    Hope this clears some things up, again this is just the way I see it, but hopefully it should make more sense now!

    General CommentLily leads a very questionable , strange marriage relationship, and is I thought a mother of 2 young children.....but rarely seen with either her kids or husband , but out being seen everywhere and with everyone else. She was spotted with her ex boyfriend in a bar, and car with luggage. That's what she's singing about, being a whore like everyone else.

    General CommentThis song really seems to miss the boat when assessing female pop-star-conquerdom in 2014: no mention of Taylor Swift. Lily didn't see it coming, I guess....
