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.— Lily Allen
The most strong Lily Allen quotes that will be huge advantage for your personal development
I'm opinionated, but I'm not a vindictive person and I never say anything unprovoked, either.
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.
If you can't detect the sarcasm you've misunderstood.
I was a drug dealer in Ibiza at 15. I did not excel in drug dealing - I was terrible at it. Golden rule with drug dealing - don't get too enthusiastic with your own merchandise.
I think I'm like Marmite; you either love me or you hate me.
Perez Hilton is an irritating wasp in the beautiful rose garden that is my life.
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.
You have to be in love with yourself before anyone else can fall in love with you; to be happy with yourself.
I don't really like the way that journalism works in the UK anyway;
it's all about getting the most shocking thing out of somebody and kind of twisting people's words, which isn't really journalism, as far as I'm concerned.
When a music teacher that I had at school was taken ill and we had a variety show and I had to fill in - that's when I realized I had a voice.
I always wanted to do music but never really had the confidence to do it until my first manager George Lamb, who I met out in Ibiza, encouraged me.
I think of myself as quite a confused kind of person, because I think there's so many great things about the world, but there are so many awful things too. I feel very guilty a lot of the time about enjoying my life so much when there are people living in such misery.
The Mail Online is like carbs - you know you shouldn't but you do.
Probably two or three times a day.
I never go out to be photographed, never. I go to events because they're fun.
I'm really convinced I`m not talented at all, and I'm sure that people are just about to figure that out.
I'm quite an opinionated person, but I'd never written a diary before. I quite like it!
I think that education works up to a certain point.
.. I think unless I wanted to be like a nurse, or a doctor, or something that required that kind of knowledge, then education is fine. But I didn't really know what I wanted to do, so I didn't see the point in spending seven more years of my life studying something.
I'm a record collector. I'd spend all my pocket money on vinyl.
You cannot compare Britney with Lady Gaga.
..You are putting Lady Gaga at the same level of Britney Spears? I really cannot believe it. Lady Gaga is good, but she's a new artist, Britney Spears is a legend.
Being on the road, the Internet enables me to interact with people in some way.
It's not so much interacting with my fans - it's about doing something with what I have. I have my camera and I have my computer, and if I have some spare time, rather than watching some mindless bullshit pop-idol program on TV, why not show people my pictures and try and discuss things that I feel are important?
I don't see myself as a role model; people should look to mothers and sisters as role models.
As for drugs, it annoys me that people think it`s the worst thing in the world compared with, say, not paying your taxes. If you don`t pay tax, you may be stealing from someone who needs an operation. As for me and drugs or alcohol: No thanks, I`m abstaining for a while.
I don't think men are the enemy. I think women are the enemy.
I've actually broken up with boyfriends for inspiration.
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 am a weapon of massive consumption
I think people just probably don't want people to think that they're vain.
We're in the age of the selfie. It's just encouraging vanity. It's not even representative of anything except how you want people to perceive you. Think of when people are partying and having fun. They're like, "Hey, look at us!" You're obviously not having that much fun because otherwise you wouldn't be stopping to document it. It's stupid.
I'm just not a private person. It's not like I do things because I want things to be public; it's just that's my way of expressing myself, and I happen to be very famous.
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 studied voice when I was at school, and I was in the chamber choir, and I studied music theory as well, so I guess a lot of it came from being taught at school.
There's a certain amount of what I wear that I wear for irony.
Periods. We all get periods. Once a month, yeah. That's what the theory is
Nobody says anything real today. Most of those girls have their songs written by other people. It annoys me, because 'eh oh eh oh ahh' is not a chorus...
All of my songs are about me and my experiences. They're very literal.
If I could dance like the ladies can, it would have been my arse on your screens.
I just felt like I couldn't deal with the everyday responsibilities of life, paying bills and all of that. I'm terrible at all of that. So I knew I had to make enough money to pay someone else to deal with all of that.
I want to go to the gym every day otherwise I feel really bad.
I just want to get more toned and healthy.
People in this day and age are still under the illusion that every woman who is successful must be being controlled by a man... I'm the boss.
I refuse to put make-up on just because the paparazzi are on my doorstep. I find it morally wrong.
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?
Why is there even a conversation about feminism?
I still think I'm fat. Right now I'm worrying about how I'm going to lose weight after the pregnancy. I feel like an elephant, but I do get the occasional sexy pregnant day where I think I look great.
I don't like being put in the same category as people because we have the same genitals and boobs. Nobody is going to write "Lily Allen vs. Ed Sheeran." It just doesn't happen.
And I am a weapon of massive consumption And it's not my fault, it's how I'm programmed to function.
I don't care what people think of me now, so why would I care when I'm dead?
