I think the whole, like, cultural diversity and the arty side of London is really, really great. And how it's so historic as well.
The world is run on fear and shame. And I don't feel like we can begin to overcome these things until we speak about them openly and stop being scared of what happens as a result.
Everyone thinks Lily Allen is this brash, bold, funny person. It was all just a bit of a facade and bravado.
I don't really see how any song can not feel contrived if it isn't honest, and how could I write honest songs if I don't write about stuff going on in my life and how I'm feeling?
I refuse to put make-up on just because the paparazzi are on my doorstep. I find it morally wrong.
Because of piracy there has been a massive downturn in people buying music, which makes it more difficult for artists to make money from the sale of records.
I used to be really envious of those kids who could do their homework and bring it in on time and were organised.
Yeah, I was a florist. I went to floristry school.
I had my mid-life crisis at 29. I've got my thirties and forties into the back end of my twenties.
In an ideal world, the 'Daily Mail' would write about what a brilliant mother I am. But it's not going to happen.
If you ask most people, 'Who's Lily Allen?,' they'll say, 'That girl who's in the papers all the time.' Not that girl who wrote songs.
I think as long as you're not being malicious and you're not hurting people then you should not be ashamed of what you do.
I love MySpace; it's done an amazing job for me and it's been insane over the past couple of weeks, but I'm not a poster girl for them.
I was guilty of appropriating when I did a video called 'Hard Out Here.' I was guilty of assuming that there was a one-size-fits-all where feminism is concerned.
I like to be able to get up and go and buy a pint of milk without bumping into 20 people I know.
I hang out with models, the biggest pop stars and, you know, really and honestly, I hate saying this, but none of them are achieving those body shapes by being healthy.
I had quite a turbulent upbringing. It was middle class, and everything was quite comfortable, but everyone was mental.
I'm opinionated, but I'm not a vindictive person and I never say anything unprovoked, either.
I'm not good at many things. But I really like songwriting, and I get a good reaction from it. There's not much that I do that causes a good reaction, so it feels like if I want to have good things happen, then I should do the things I'm good at. I mean, in all seriousness, I left school at 15. I'm unqualified to do anything else.
