Lily Allen: ‘I google myself ten times a day’

Sometimes, I think Lily Allen really walks that knife’s edge of obnoxious/annoying and cute/spunky. Her new album’s a success in America and Britain, and to celebrate Lily got in a Twitter war with Perez Hilton. She’s also given several interviews where she talks about all of the alcohol she consumes and proudly shows off her third nipple whenever she’s asked about it.

In Lily’s latest interview, to Extra (details via OK! Magazine), Lily talks about nudity and the nature of fame. In regards to nudity, Lily says she’s very comfortable with her body – yep, we know. We’ve all seen your boobs. They’re nice, but you should wear a bra. She also says that she googles herself “ten times a day”. I’ll give her credit for being honest.

In case anyone was wondering, Lily Allen will tell you what she thinks – first it was her thoughts on drugs and alcohol, and now she’s saying she wouldn’t mind taking it all off for cameras!

“I’m just very comfortable in my body,” she admits to Extra in an interview. “I wouldn’t do it in a ‘Hey-Look-At-My-Boobs kind of way. ‘ ”(Is there any other way?)

Although her new album is called The Fear, the slimmed-down singer doesn’t admit to being afraid of too much these days, after having lived in the media’s spotlight for a few years now.

“I Google myself about ten times a day and that’s the truth,” she says of keeping up with the latest gossip. “They bother me if they’re inaccurate in which case I sue… In which case it doesn’t bother me because I make money out of it!”

So if she’s not afraid of fame or getting naked, what is she scared by?

“Probably dying alone… and pigeons maybe,” she reveals. “I just don’t like when you walk near them and they fly towards you and they flap their wings fast.”

Pigeons? I’d be afraid Perez Hilton would throw a hissy and claw at my face if I was Lily. But I do respect her honesty about googling herself. I really think more celebrities keep tabs on their publicity like that (cough cough John Mayer), and at least Lily isn’t trying to pull some “oh, I can’t read about myself” crap. The pigeon phobia does worry me though. Who’s scared of friggin’ pigeons?

    Methinks Lily has some unresolved issues.

    OH Sam, Sam, Sam – I know people who are practically paralysed anytime a pigeon comes near… big burly men included

    And “Hello Lily”!

    One of my super macho guy friends is petrified of city squirrels. He’s okay with them when camping, but swears the Toronto raised ones are out to get him. It’s hilarious.

  4. geronimo says:

    Pigeons, London ones particularly, can be very intimidating. They don’t move out of your way. I’m with Lily

  5. Mairead says:

    LOL Roma – grey squirrels (as opposed to the native endangered red squirrel) regularly mug one of my friends whenever he visits London.

    I’ve seen people shriek and jump out of his way (baffling but hilarious)but these little feckers will make off with his chewing gum without so much as a by-your-leave!

    I’ve had to leave parks because of squirrels. No idea of personal space, they come over, pick up your food, your shoes, your sunglasses, once saw one strolling around with a cigarette lighter in its paw. They’re funny but quite scary.

  7. Whitey Fisk says:

    @Enonymous – definitely.

    She alternates between annoying me and making me feel sad for her. She seems lost.

  8. Jane says:

    She’s cute.

  9. buenavissta says:

    She may be occasionally misguided and even obnoxious but I find her honesty refreshing, too, Kaiser. I’ll take that over pretense any time.
    BTW I’m enjoying your posts as much as I enjoyed your comments. Keep up the stellar work.

    THe DC squirrels appear to be adorable and cuddly (but don’t do it, in case of The Rabies),
    so when I went to Boston I was scared shaky by the ginormous red-eyed snarly squirrels there! hehe
