If you don't know Lily Allen yet, your life isn't as happy as it could be. Not only does she make the happiest music you'll ever hear about having her ex boyfriend beaten up and little old ladies maybe or maybe not getting killed by muggers, she's also the only one in music who makes any damn sense. In an interview win this months Brit GQ, she was asked who the most overrated person in pop music history is. Lily says:
"Madonna. I haven't got anything against her at all but she hasn't done anything since the early eighties that has been like 'wow'. She might have meant something once but I don't know anyone my age who cares."
On Pete Doherty:
Her thoughts on Paris Hilton:
"I do think he needs to be exterminated. It's a bit dull, isn't it."
"People like her are useless ... She's hideously untalented. Her music is auto-tuned. You can hear it. I know because my sister saw her in Ibiza and said it was the worst thing she had ever heard. I worked for two and a half years writing my album ... I find it hideous that she's come in and not worked for it at all."And the Pussycat Dolls:
"They're too skinny, takes all their clothes off, don't say anything, promote womanizing and look like lapdancers as far as I’m concerned. It's a really bad message to be sending young women. And not just for young women - but for young men. For them to believe that that’s what women are like in real life in such a hideous concept to sell to people. It's just terrible".For some reason Lily isn’t huge here in the Colonies yet, but at least we don't call our cops "bobbies", so take that England. You can hear Lilys latest single "LDN" here, see her myspace here. Her dad was a famous comedian, but just like me she spent a lot of time on the streets, and that's where she got her edge. Except, in my case, replace the word "streets" with "all white country club" and "edge" with "curly fries". Polo club represent, yo.
