Lily Allen Confronts Her Internet Trolls

I liked Lily Allen’s song “URL Badman” to begin with, but I love it now that there’s commenters up on YouTube screaming “misandry” over the new music video. (Of course plenty of women hate on other women online and I have experienced that firsthand myself. But generally, my experience with trolls — you know, like…

Lily Allen Declined Incestuous Role Opposite Her Brother Alfie On “Game Of Thrones”

“I felt uncomfortable because I would have had to go on a horse and he would have touched me up and shit. Once they told me what was entailed, I said no thanks.”
On one hand, I’m like, Who turns down a role on “Game of Thrones,” especially a role as cool as Yara (Asha) Greyjoy?! And…

Move Over Yeezus And Make Room For Lily Allen’s “Sheezus”

Having just released the video for her latest song, “Sheezus” — which just happens to be the title track off her third album, out May 5 — Lily Allen’s eyeing the diva crown and no one, not Rihanna, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga or Lorde, better get in this bitch’s way. (Her words, not ours.)…

Street Style Star Of The Week: Lily Allen

I’ve always felt a special connection to Lily Allen, because we have the same birthday (May 2nd, represent!), the same middle name, and we are both really good at rhyming. Obviously, we’re on the same page fashion-wise too. I love her mix of flirty, feminine dresses with more daring high-fashion pieces, and, of course, some comfy…

Lily Allen: “Of Course I’m A Feminist”

“Of course I’m a feminist … I know that I get talked to in label meetings and by executives like a woman. It’s demoralising and sneering, and we apparently don’t have an opinion. It’s done in a way to make you feel ashamed, whether they know they’re doing it or not. There are women in the room,…

Lily Allen Lost Her Chanel Couture Wedding Gown & An Update On “Mean Girls” The Musical

Lily Allen has somehow casually misplaced her Chanel couture wedding reception dress, specially designed for her by Karl Lagerfeld. How does one lose such a thing? Shouldn’t it be in, like, a safe encased in glass surrounded by a moat? Oh, rich people. [Telegraph UK]
New couple alert: Lupita Nyong’o has been secretly…

Lily Allen’s “Our Time” Music Video Reenacts The Time Lindsay, Britney & Paris All Hung Out

Once upon a time, there lived three wild, crazy, barely-to-moderately talented entertainers who ran in the same circle but did not often hang out together, either because of jealousy, competition and, some say, bits of unrequited affection. Then one day, all three of these starlets were photographed in a car together and the universe practically…

Lily Allen Battles Blogger Over Feminism Comments

Lily Allen got in a Twitter dispute with a blogger from Holy Moly, after she took the pop star to task for saying she doesn’t understand why feminism exists anymore and “I don’t think men are the enemy. I think women are the enemy.” Lily Allen reacted defensively, accusing writer Becca Day-Preston of misunderstanding…

Lily Allen: Women Are Expected To Look Pretty And Not Talk

Of course I’d rather look like Kate Moss than look like myself. I wish I didn’t feel like that, and I think the reason we feel like that is because of the imagery we’re fed all the time. Women are still expected, in some weird way, to kind of … sit there and look pretty.

Lily Allen Calls Fellow Pop Stars “Botoxed Idiots”

Lily Allen isn’t one to mince words! In her new UK Esquire profile, Lily talks about growing up during the glory years of Britpop and how she was “a bit disappointed when I arrived and it was a bunch of sterile fucking Botoxed idiots that stank of desperation.” Well, that’s gonna make the Grammy…

Style Stealer: Lily Allen Is Pretty In Pale Pink

Lily Allen is back with a new song, a questionable music video, and her signature funky/feminine style. I’m pretty in love with this dusty pink coat, and pairing it with leopard print pumps is a fun, Lily-esque choice that totally works. Want to steal her look for yourself? Get all the pieces (for around $100…

Lily Allen Responds To Allegations Of Racism Against Black Women In Her “Hard Out Here” Video

This week, Lily Allen debuted the video for her new song “Hard Out Here,” to extremely mixed reactions. Some, like our own Rachel, saw her song about pop music’s policing of women’s bodies and double standards about sexuality as a “feminist anthem.”  Others are deeply offended by her use of mostly women of color backu…

Lily Allen Is Back And Better Than Ever, And We Couldn’t Be More Excited

Fiiiiinally! After a three-year hiatus, Lily Allen is back with a long overdue new single and music video … and it’s a FEMINIST ANTHEM, no less. “Hard Out Here” is awesome and fun and catchy in true Lily fashion, but the song itself serves to stand as commentary against celebrity culture and beyond, with none-too-subtle…

14 Famous Ladies Who Changed Their Names After Getting Married

I’ve always been shocked by the statistic that 93 percent of American women take their husband’s last name. But there’s one group that’s overly represented in the seven percent who don’t—celebrities. It makes sense because, once you get to the point where you’re famous, your name is a brand. It’s the way people have, and…

Lily Allen Could Have Ended Up Like Amy Winehouse

“I’ve had nights out with Amy and know exactly what used to go on. It’s so easy to get caught up in that madness. I’ve been strong enough to walk away. When Amy died, I got several texts from friends saying they were really glad I was still here, that I hadn’t died too.”…

Lily Allen Thinks American Celebs Aren’t Normal, Abuse Adderall

“I wasn’t eating … [I was] going out at night. I guess when you’re not eating you have to distract yourself with other things. Come three o’clock it was like, ‘Oh I suppose it’s acceptable to have a glass of wine.’ And then by four o’clock I would have had four glasses. It’s not the…

Do Not Want: Lucy In Disguise Haight & Ashbury Dress

Lily Allen and her sister Sarah Owen have collaborated on Lucy in Disguise, a modern take on retro style clothing. As owners of a vintage store of the same name, the sisters definitely know about fashions from decades past. But their Haight & Ashbury Dress confuses us because we don’t know anyone who wants to…

The John Edwards mug shot is here! The naughty ex-senator was booked on June 6 over charges he used campaign funds to keep his mistress, Rielle Hunter, under wraps.
