English singer-songwriter Lily Allen has just released a limited edition vibrator in collaboration with sex toy brand Womanizer.
For those who might blush at the thought, we've got news for you: If you're old enough to remember her reign as the queen of MySpace, you're old enough for bedroom gadgets. Liberty by Lily Allen is a handheld device made in a bright shade called "rebellious pink."
"Loving yourself should be the most normal thing in the world," she says in a new ad for the product. "We all deserve amazing orgasms, right? So let's be open about it."
Allen is taking her title as the brand's Chief Liberation Officer seriously. She and Womanizer have launched a #IMasturbate campaign on social media to "wipe out the social stigma around female pleasure."
In 2005, after struggling with industry executives to get her music career off the ground, Allen took the reins and posted demos on a personal MySpace page. By 2006, she was working with top producer Mark Ronson and saw her album make Entertainment Weekly's annual Top 10 list. Since then, The "Smile" singer has made headlines not only for her music but for being a provocateur. She detailed her wild ride in 2018's My Thoughts Exactly, a memoir about "feminism, the tabloids, money, faking orgasms, bad managers, fame, sexual abuse, mental health, narcissism, co-dependency, festivals, motherhood, stalking and parking tickets."
Allen is currently working on a new concept album. No word on a release date, but in the meantime, we appreciate creative collaborations like these. We expect it to generate a lot of buzz (no pun intended).
