Today’s Lady News: Guys Are Scared To Sleep With Lily Allen

  • Lily Allen told Elle UK that men are afraid to date her because their worst traits might end up in a song—like the guy whose crappy bedroom skills are immortalized in the song “Not Fair.” Ah, sucks to be him! “I wish I’d never written ‘Not Fair,’” Allen said. “You know, the thought honestly—really, honestly—never even occurred to me that it would scare men. I thought it might empower women. I thought women would go: ‘Oh God, yes, at last somebody is saying it.’ I didn’t think it would put me in a position where guys would be like, ‘Whoa, no, I’m not sleeping with you in case you write something about it!’” [Showbiz Spy]
  • Police say someone threw a bomb at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Lincoln, NE, yesterday but missed the building. Instead, the Molotov cocktail hit and burned the pavement. The incident occurred after two days of protests at a clinic in Bellevue, NE, which is about 50 miles away from Lincoln. [Action 3 News]
  • A Republican candidate for governor in Virginia, Robert McDonnell, wrote in his master’s thesis two decades ago that working women and feminists are “detrimental” to the family and expressed scorn for “co-habitators, homosexuals and fornicators.” He also called the 1972 Supreme Court decision which legalized the use of birth control by unmarried couples “illogical.” On Saturday, McDonnell said his views have changed as he got older. [Washington Post]—As an unmarried, illogical fornicator, I’m still skeptical.

    Watch Lily Allen Seriously Work The Camera

    Check out this cute behind-the-scenes video of Lily Allen shooting “The London Issue” for Elle UK. Maybe she’s learned some modeling moves from her new bestie Kate Moss, because as mag photog Rankin notes, she kills it. Choice quotes include: “I love a wig on a celebrity”; “Lily is London”; “My weight fluctuates so much; the most important thing is being comfortable”; and “I thought she was gonna be cool, but she’s like, uber-cool.” [Pipeline] Keep reading »

    Lily Allen Freaks Out In Concert

    Lily Allen needs to take her own advice and smile. The 24-year-old started sobbing in the middle of her concert in Finland over the weekend. Through her tears, she told the audience that she had fallen and hurt her back the night before and was on painkillers. The pain and medication combo was making her super emotional. [Metro UK]

    Lily finished the concert but we’re starting to wonder why so many musicians are getting hurt these days… Keep reading »

    Preview: Lily Allen’s Jewelry Line Kind Of Impressive

    Lily Allen’s style has varied over the years, as she’s gone from a poppy Brit icon to a highbrow Chanel cover girl. So when the singer announced that she’d be putting out a jewelry collection, guesses as to what it might look like drew a blank. Vogue UK has released the first images of the line, and the pieces prove to be delightful with pendants of fruits, animals, coins, and friendly icons. In short, classy and simple but still fun and cheeky — with an edge that is undeniably Allen. Interestingly, her inspiration came from her totally cool-sounding grandmother who was a gypsy. (Other pieces in the bunch feature gypsy sovereign coins.)

    We’re starting to see a much more sophisticated and grown-up side of Lily—Grazia even caught her on video as she shot the line’s ad campaign. She’s totally professional and apparently did her own styling pre-camera, dressing herself in Topshop and vintage Chanel (nice!). After the jump, the video plus a few more looks from Lily’s collection. [Vogue UK] Keep reading »

    White Eyeshadow Provides Instant Rest For The Weary

    During the recent couture week in Paris, designer Elie Saab showed an entirely white collection, which included matte ivory eyeshadow surrounding the models’ eyes. Sure, they looked a little like aliens or the White Witch from The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, but I tried out some of the stuff, and without any coaxing, my friends started complimenting me on how fresh and awake I looked.

    If you’d prefer more of a fairy goddess look than extreme runway style, follow Lily Allen’s lead and use a shimmering white. Whether you want to surround your eyes like she did or just apply a smidge on your lid is your call. Keep reading »

    Lily Allen Calls Susan Boyle “Over-Rated”

    The are two ways celebrities who need a little attention can guarantee publicity. Actually, scratch that, there are many ways celebs can get publicity, including sex tapes, pregnancy rumors, dramatic break-ups, and quickie marriages. But the two strategies that seem to be the most popular lately are the always-successful yo-yo dieting blitz, as perfected by Oprah, Jessica Simpson, Kirstie Alley, and Mariah Carey, and bad-mouthing another celeb on twitter or one’s personal blog.
