If there is one person who knows how to stay current (and controversial) and milk their image to the hilt, it’s the bold and very unapologetic Veena Malik.

If you thought her shouting matches (and chemistry with Ashmit Patel) during “Bigg Boss” and topless photoshoot for FHM magazine were going to be her most controversial moments, Veena has ensured that she keeps the surprises coming. While struggling to make it big in Bollywood (or anywhere!) by signing on low-budget films with little known actors, the starlet has now officially launched her music career with ArtistAloud.com.

The starlet launched her debut single “Drama Queen” in New Delhi on Monday, and is hoping to work on more tracks for an album that is scheduled for release early next year. The album will host producers from across the world giving each song a different vibe, including collaboration with British Asian music producer Bups Saggu. The album is an exciting new venture for Veena aside from her film and TV career. “I’m so excited to release ‘Drama Queen’ to the world,” she said. “Everyone is always tagging me like this so I thought why not, let’s make a song on it!”

“People do call me a ‘drama queen’, and to some extent I am one. I feel every girl is a drama queen. The lyrics of the song represent every girl out there,” she said.

According to reports, the song was recorded in August last year and Veena has been busy with the video and photoshoots since. “The song is fun and cheeky at the same time,” said the starlet.

The video

Veena Malik has definitely been working hard to stay fit. In the video, the 28-year-old actor is seen dancing at a club in clothes that show off her sexy figure. She carries off different looks ranging from a metallic corset and an embellished gold dress, to a short bob in blue during a scene where paparazzi is filming her in a bathtub. While Veena isn’t the most fluid in her movements as a dancer, and some of her moves seem forced, we’ll have to admit the number is catchy!

Here are some of the lyrics:

Excuse me,

Mein hun queen,

Thodi snobbish

Thodi mean.

Sab se hot sab se spicy,

Koi nahi mere jaisi.

Cute and naughty mein hun yaar.

Karti hun bas khud se pyaar!

Hun hun hun mein drama queen.

Drama mama.

Itne sare hand bags,

Itne sare shoes.

Itni stylist, itni sexy,

Always in the news.

3, 4 chor na yaar,

Party jaoon in mehengi cars,

Mera driver lage super star,

Pyas laggi karidun bar!

Yeh princess hai priceless,

Your boyfriend tujhe kare minus,

Na kar paoge digest,

My T+ A ‘s the nicest!

    her moves rather look more of a “desperate” queen’s than as song title suggest.

    Is she really 28? wow I can’t believe she’s so close to my age. Thought she was in her early 30s at least, or is this her Meera age?

    Venna is bent on creating controversy and by the looks of it she has from the few comments here. The more she riles YOU the average man/woman on the street the more you all answer as poor sheepal that hate/adore at her altar. People take a chill pill she is an entertainer you can love or hate her but take it for what she is worth! Everyone has an opinion but in the end Veena delivers the fodder for all your chit-chat! Has Veena won? as long as you all debate her T & A, her worth, her value, her loyalty. her age, her talent, her style, her body she has achieved her goal you ARE talking about her and that is all Veena wants and each time she gets what she wants!

    She is single enough because with her there is no need of any other ladies because the other ladies shall hardly or would never like to afford what Veena can easily afford……..Recommend
