Now that "Sheezus" has leaked, we're not entirely sure that people are going to be as concerned about the two verses referencing menstruation as Lily Allen initially thought. Instead, they're going to have a bit of trouble getting past the diva-bashing and/or name-checking she lets loose with in the chorus. 

Because no one—not even Lorde!—is left untouched.

The title track of Sheezus calls out pretty much every main dame on the charts with the exception of Taylor Swift: Lorde, RihannaKaty PerryBeyoncéLady Gaga and technically Kanye all get name-checked, all with shades of insults thrown their way:

"Ri Ri isn't scared of Katy Perry's roarin' / Queen B's gone back to the drawin' / Lorde smells blood, yeah, she's about to slay you / Didn't want to f--k with when she's only on her debut / We're all watching Gaga / L-O-L-O-ah-ah / Dying for the art, so / Really she's a martyr / Second best will never cut it for the divas / Give me that crown, bitch / I want to be Sheezus."

So much for that new, "nicer" Lily Allen.
