The most extreme example of the species of MySpace-savvy artists discussed in that NYT Mag article is our dear Lily, and as if on cue, she lets us in on her case of the body-image blues. This comes from Lil’s MySpace, but of course:

fat , ugly and shitter than winehouse

that is all i am , im on my own in america again . I used to pride myself on being strong minded and not being some stupid girl obsessed with the way I look . I felt like it didnt matter if I was a bit chubby cause , im not a model , I’m a singer . Im afraid I am not strong and have fallen victim to the evil machine . I write to you in a sea of tears from my hotel bed in Seattle , I have spent the past hour researching gastric bypass surgery , and laser lipo suction .

Here are the photos she’s upped from her bed. One is before the tears, and the other is titled “me crying in bed.” Awwww.

Don’t worry Lily, most think you’re more hot than not. You’re certainly a little nuts, but adorable doing it. And hopefully, not a chick with a dick. After the jump, pre-body-image-blues Lily, enjoying a chili cheese dog and saying “Fuck you” to fashion.

That’s the Lil we want back.

    She’s not all that attractive but it has nothing to do with being fat (which she’s not)…how the hell is she so much paler in the second shot than the first????

    See, LDN really *is* a victim …

  3. Lady Sovereign  |   Posted on May 14th, 2007 0

    She should get a nose job whilst she’s at it.

  4. Aaaaargh. This pisses me off. There is something seriously wrong with society when someone like Lily Allen contemplates getting gastric bypass surgery. I’m sure some people think that she just needs to toughen up and get over it, but personally I can’t even fathom what it’s like to be under constant scrutiny and called chubby all the time by the media. It must be maddening.

  5. And by “someone like Lily Allen” I mean someone who is not even remotely fat.

  6. Bugs Meany  |   Posted on May 14th, 2007 0

    Did she happen upon all my “she looks like a chubby fetus” comments?

  7. anon  |   Posted on May 14th, 2007 0

    If she’s fat, I must be obese. Yikes!

  8. mike d  |   Posted on May 14th, 2007 0

    she kind of looks like ashlee simpson in that video.

    except, you know – actually beautiful.

  9. dude  |   Posted on May 14th, 2007 0

    I think she’s attrative, she’s not super model hot, but still hot. Who is super model hot anyways?

  10. Oh my god, gross. Her moles are being swallowed by that obese face of hers.

  11. jed2  |   Posted on May 14th, 2007 0

    Jesus, some of you people are assholes.

    While I find her music incredibly dull and her persona occasionally irritating, I actually think she’s really hot. And super models aren’t hot, they’re weird-looking. That’s why they’re models. I’ll never understand why some dudes find women who look like 12 year old boys sexually attractive, except that maybe they actually like 12 year old boys.

    Anyway, aside from that, she’s not even close to “fat”. Jesus, New York, get your head out of your ass.

    12 year old boys put up the least amount of struggle.

  13. Liam  |   Posted on May 14th, 2007 0

    and honestly, lily should shut up and look on the bright side: unlike winehouse, she’s not being lusted after by david gest.

  14. poo poo  |   Posted on May 14th, 2007 0

    for god’s sake, go for a run and quit whining.

  15. victor ponce  |   Posted on May 14th, 2007 0

    That was f’n funny Liam but I think you are looking for the nambla website, and by the way like someone else said despite not being a fan of her music she’s far far from being fat and she is cutish….. girls wil be girls despite being rich and famous.

    1. WInehouse also has body image problems if the stuff about her cutting herself is true; also not thin, at least by Lily’s apparent standards.
    2. Winehouse has one good song that got tired after five or six listens.
    3. Why the FUCK is the British music scene so goddamn petty?

  17. jed2  |   Posted on May 14th, 2007 0

    The British music scene’s ridiculousness is entirely to do with the British Music Press.

  18. seth  |   Posted on May 14th, 2007 0

    what is it about myspace that makes people want to photograph themselves crying? is it tom?

  19. al  |   Posted on May 14th, 2007 0

    aww i think she’s cute.

  20. does nobody get that she’s being sarcastic?

  21. KingHater  |   Posted on May 14th, 2007 0

    Darling, if you’re so affected by the “evil machine”, how’s about doing your crying without having to turn the camera on yourself?

    You’re not fat, okay? You’re pretty. You’re talented. So cut out all this fucking whining.

  22. Like Lost In Translation…without the sexy Johansson.

  23. Matthew  |   Posted on May 14th, 2007 0

    She slightly cute, but she’s in-no-fucking-way fat at all, and she should be slapped for thinking she is. I’m putting in a call to Winehouse.

    Seriously, though, that’s fucking insulting bullshit. As a fatass (compared to her, at least) myself, it’s damned obnoxious to see these women who are absolutely fine, even by society’s standards, complaining about how fat they think they are. It’s sickening. For God’s sake, who gives a shit? You’re a singer, so sing. Don’t worry so much about how you look. Good grief. And if the labels give you shit about it, flip them off. Who cares?

  24. wtf?  |   Posted on May 14th, 2007 0

    When distraught, she wears her green tank top.

    But when she’s going to cry, changes into her white one. Apparently.

  25. Matthew  |   Posted on May 14th, 2007 0

    Ugh, I feel like I came off a bit harsh. I have sympathy for those with anorexia or whatever, but I don’t think Lily has that. She looks to be just feeling inadequate, and that is bullshit. Women need to stop caring what other people want them to look like, and just live as healthy as they can and be happy. More often than not, all the special clothes and jewelry and makeup and stupid surgical shit, it’s just excessive nonsense. A woman lacking confidence is much less attractive than a woman with a little pudge. So there.

  26. josh  |   Posted on May 14th, 2007 0

    lily is not ugly at all

    she just got off a year long tour..she needs to just get back to her normal routine.

  27. yomomma  |   Posted on May 14th, 2007 0

    It’s called **SELF** esteem. Meaning you are in control of how you feel about yourself. For every person that thinks person “A” is fat, there is another who thinks they are not. They have to choose to whom to listen.

    That being said, she looks a bit like miss piggy.

  28. volume-addict  |   Posted on May 14th, 2007 0

    Who the hell booked her to open for Fergie and Hillary Duff anyways? I think this gig has been what’s giving her the blues and is perhaps some sick promoter’s idea of hell for her. She had a performance slot at the Everett Events Center and must have been a terrible Mother’s Day gift for some attendees.

  29. people – i think she’s joking.

  30. elise  |   Posted on May 14th, 2007 0

    um helo? lily allen is so much cuter than amy winehouse. voices aside. amy looks like a crack whore and her legs look like toothpicks

  31. liv  |   Posted on May 14th, 2007 0

    I think Lily is beautiful, mainly because of her free and unique spirit. I hope she overcomes her body image issues, because she was one of the very few women in the public eye that wasn’t a phony, waify whore. we need way more Lily Allens in the world.

  32. word to your mother  |   Posted on May 14th, 2007 0

    In a world full of Lily Allens, Amy Winehouse is the queen.

  33. Lily Allen’s only crime is making boring music. Boring. Boring. Boring.

  34. mo  |   Posted on May 14th, 2007 0

    so she’s not a crack addict like her british counterpart, and not in the least obese. i feel for her cuz all the u.s chix are surrounded by the teens striving to look like ashley olson

    cheer up babe, you’re not alone, and not fat. hardly even chubby

    If she’s joking, then this is hilarious.

    If she’s not joking, then she can die.

  37. Steve Sanders  |   Posted on May 15th, 2007 0

    Obviously she wasn’t joking considering her fellow up.

    So does this mean we should lay down an Indie Rock fatwa on her ass?

    I don’t like the way she acts, but she should be pleased with the way she looks, she is cute.

  38. CyD  |   Posted on May 26th, 2007 0

    some of you guys are assholes! it doesn’t matter what she looks like it matters how her music sounds! would you guys like it if there was a blog that talked about how ugly you are?????? besides all of you people who hate her music need to get a life because why take the time to make comments about how you hate her and how she is ugly!!!!!!!!! seriously!

  39. wow! lily, you are so ridiculous. why worry about what others think? it don’t even give a matter. are you happy with yourself? that’s what matters. when you die ain’t none of these people gon be with you anyway. i remember seeing your first commercial with you laying on a bed with your laptop talking about boys, and i almost peed myself laughing. i then went into research to looking at some of your music, and i have just recently seen your video about your little brother being high.. ? i don’t know, but i was having giggles & shits then too. i think you’re amazingly beautiful, and on top of that you show that you don’t care what others think, and are very confident in yourself, which makes you even HOTTER. (ha, if i was a guy, i’d do you.)

    but yeah, who cares. be yourself. and you are a music artist, not a model. but i think you could do both if you wanted. =)

    keep me inspired!!!

    She is pretty fat. But that might be my overwhelming hatred for her, clouding my vision, making her seem obese.
    Why won’t she die? Seriously.
    What a cunt.

  42. lil mis muffet  |   Posted on Jul 20th, 2007 0

    Lily allen might not be the skinnyest girl in the fame game but she sure aint fat.I don tknow why all these paparatzzi peps put all this preassure on famouse people IE lily allen and make them feel like there fat and ugly.

  43. missmaddy  |   Posted on Oct 3rd, 2007 0

    i guess if theres anywhere that will make you feel fat its america.
    and thats all good to say but did you read the next blog entry?? shes a lot happier and everything. i love lilys blog coz its so honest and real and of course shes gonna feel a bit of pressure.
    i think shes a celebrity that is actually ok to look up to.

  44. Raul  |   Posted on Oct 6th, 2007 0

    I eat my own shit

  45. polly  |   Posted on Oct 26th, 2007 0

    So Lily Allen needs liposuction? Yeah right! She’s all women and far sexier than those Girls Aloud skanks! Yuk!

  46. Laura  |   Posted on Dec 2nd, 2007 0

    She is not, was not fat. A very attractive girl.

  47. Nowthen  |   Posted on Dec 11th, 2007 0

    Ok Look, if you have so much time on your hands that your makeing negative comments, then my advice is get a life. Lilly Allen is hilarious an inspiration to all of us out there who dont go for the terms of Herion Chic, anyway, shes not fat, at all. Stop with the fucking *shes fat* comments, its makes you sound jealous and bitchy. Her musics great and shes pretty, get over it.

  48. OMG!!!!!!!
    Do you know how many people wish they had your body.
    And anyone who criticizes lily should go get a fucking life!!!!

  49. Lilly’s cool! Have you seen her in those Rayban Aviators she wears?,

  50. Kevin  |   Posted on Nov 6th, 2008 0

    Heres what happened, someone wrote in an article that Lily Allen was fat, ugly and shittier than Amy Winehouse, Lily Allen used that as a blog title, and it was blown out of proportion. Lily Allen wrote the blog for her fans on ”her” My space page, the press steals that information, and twists it to the way they want to say it, (happens to her all the time.) she blogs less now and is very careful about what she writes.
