Last week Lily Allen managed to expose her breasts not once but twice, after a period of not being photographed much. Some suggested that, in the lead up to a new album, it was a publicity stunt. Turns out, Lily just doesn’t like to wear a bra.
hello , i wore a loose fitting t shirt yesterday . I was very hot in London yesterday , and it’s no secret I don’t like wearing bras , besides i don’t need to, measuring in at 32A it hardly seems necessary .My boob fell out twice and people on the blogs are saying it was a publicity stunt . Can I just say , i have been keeping myself very much to myself recently , i’ve been gardening , decorating my new flat and looking after my greiving grandfather .
If i wanted publicity , i’d be accepting invitations not to mention money for turning up to glamourous events . I’m actually trying really hard to be out of the public eye , as I’m really proud of the work i’ve put into my album and I want people to appreciate the music , yes I enjoy attention and praise , thats why i went into this job . But don’t accuse me of purposely slipping out of my clothes to get attention and press . I hate the fact that there are always 10 middle aged men following me everywhere that i go .
I understand that it’s the price i pay for having a nice house and nice clothes , and i treat them with courtesy when i don’t think that they particularly deserve it . i’m a very independent person and I like to live as normal a life as anybody where I can ,I live by myself , i drive myself around and run all my errands by myself . It’s actually incredibly embarrasing and lonely when I’m walking down the street and men are chasing me with their cameras , drawing attention to me and people then pointing and taking out their camera’s and phones all getting in on the action . I’m 5″2 i’m 23 and this stuff gets to me every so often , so when you see pictures of ” lily looking , glum” or ” lily in tears , again” it’s not because i’m upset about my relationships or because i’m hungover . It’s because i’m on my own and people are pointing at me like an animal in the zoo , talking about me as if i’m not there, meanwhile 10 -20 guys are all making money catching every second of it . Anyway my point is , i would never use my body in that way , I’m just not that kind of girl .
Lily’s official myspace
I have a new sympathy for Lily – today I went to pick my kid up from school and it wasn’t until I got home I realized my shirt had slipped, revealing most of my bra. At least I had one on! Lily may have to face the wrath of the world for her moody glares, but does she have to face the snickers of the mommy set, and the comments at the next PTA meeting?
What Lily describes sounds more than lonely, to me it sounds terrifying. How would you feel having a few men follow you around, loitering outside of the home you live alone in? The British paparazzi are known for their vicious tactics, but this all seems a bit much.
The interest in Lily in Britain seems to be very high, she’s regularly featured in the tabloids (when Amy Winehouse is having a slow week), and she was recently papped on her way to her Nan’s funeral.
Note by Celebitchy: I appreciate what she’s saying about having 10 guys following her every day and feeling down about it, but if she knows that she’s popped out of her top twice would it kill her to wear a bra? The photos where she’s wearing an undershirt without a bra were taken after her two boob-baring incidents. If she doesn’t like bras there are always those nice tank tops with the built-in shelf bras. I’m smaller-chested like her and I love those. You never fall out of them, either.
