British songstress Lily Allen must not be happy with the amount of success relative newcomer Katie Perry has had. Allen, 23, ripped into the 24 year-old hit singer, calling her lyrics “crass” and telling her to shut up because she doesn’t write her own songs. Allen was responding to a dig from Allen in which she she she was like a fatter version of Winehouse but skinnier than Allen.
Loudmouth Lily Allen has sparked another celebrity feud, this time taking fire at US chart topper Katy Perry calling her ‘crass’ and telling her to ‘shut up!’
Allen hit out after claiming Perry has called her fat in the past and also moans the US chart topper has pinched her style.
The Smile singer, 23, told Capital Fm: ‘I happen to know for a fact that she was an American version of me.
‘She was signed by my label in America as, ‘We need to find something controversial and kooky like Lily Allen.’ And then they found her.
‘I think the lyrics and stuff are a bit crass.’
Allen says she’s angry with Perry after a string of supposed fat jibes made by the ‘Kissed A Girl’ singer.
Allen reveals: ‘When I met her I was bit frosty with her because someone asked her to describe herself. She’s like, ‘Aha, I’m like a fatter version of Amy Winehouse and a skinner version of Lily Allen!’
‘It’s like, you’re not English and you don’t write your own songs, shut up!’
The last we heard from Allen she was defending the fact that she was drunk and sniping at Elton John at an awards ceremony. She blamed the “bitter journos” for reporting that she told Elton to “f off,” blogging that “i’m 23 it was an awards ceremony i drank the free champagne, how awful of me. Trying to create a feud on the other hand, and trying to make me out as being some rude little girl with a drink problem is just unfair.”
Poor Allen, it’s so unfair of people to report the stupid things she says. Let’s see how she responds to having this blurb about Perry get repeated again. It’s everyone else’s fault that she can’t drink and talk smack in public like other vastly overpaid 20-somethings. At least it gets her some attention. She’s just about played out that going out of the house in a see-through top without a bra trick.
