Lily And Blondie Do Today

In addition to reprinting Lily’s MySpace blog posts, we’ve done our best to keep up with Ms. Allen’s tour exploits, which have included constant covers of Blondie’s “Heart Of Glass.” News of Lil’s crush on Debbie made it to the Today show producers, who arranged for Blondie and Lily to perform the tune as part… More »

What Kind Of Guys Can Get Lily Allen?

Probably the best Lily interview ever. She talks a bit about the “chick with a dick” thing and the resulting liposuction solicitation via MySpace, does a better Fergie than Fergie, and offers the most awesome answer for the pop tart pantyless parade we’ve heard yet. You’d think she’d get boring after a year of promoting… More »

Lily’s Current Mood: Better

Cheeky as she is, some of you were tempted into thinking Lil was taking the piss with her last MySpace blast. But her lips don’t lie, and neither do her tears. Now she fills us in the source of her body-image blues. Last line is best. Via MySpace: Monday, May 14, 2007

Lily Allen’s Blog Is A Plea For Help, Liposuction Location Suggestions

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:Sunday, May 13, 2007

Coachella: Saturday Night At The Sahara Tent

After !!!, we had no choice but to seek out the dance. And, inadvertently, we stumbled into the craziest “scene” we’ve seen all weekend. The lineup at the Sahara Tent Saturday night featured French electro duo Justice, LCD Soundsystem, and the Rapture, each taking turns turning-out the tent and putting bodies in motion. And the… More »

What Lily Likes

Those MySpace blog posts not offering enough insight into the condition of Lily’s psyche? P4K is there to help, taking advantage of Ms. Allen’s newfound free time by asking about her favorite shit in the world. But Lil’s got her own, albeit predictable, spin on things. Asked about her favorite band, she offered her least… More »

Lily Allen Cancels US Tour Stops, Doesn’t Blog About It

Of course that’s not true. Suppose it would be more newsworthy if in fact she didn’t take to MySpace to explain it away, but Lily’s apology for canceling most of her May and June dates in the States is right cheeky. Wouldn’t expect less. She blogs:Hey Guys ,
I’m writing to tell you that I… More »

Lily Allen Is A Sore Victim

So there’s this song circling UK radio which satirizes the hipster nightlife elite called “LDN Is A Victim,” a quick hit in the vein of “Thou Shalt Always Kill,” in constant rotation at Radio 1. Guardian blogs about the song:The action kicks off at YoYo in Notting Hill, the club run by Lily Allen’s boyfriend,… More »

Lily Allen Covers Blondie

In a bleak MySpace post, Lily said “It’s the songs. I’m bored.” We’re not surprised. Tix are still on sale for her set as “the first artist to play the newly-christened Fillmore Irving Plaza“; maybe New Yorkers are burned out on the songs they’ve already seen a couple times now. Not that this stopped ‘em… More »

A Deodorant Spot That’s Sure To Knock ‘Em Out

Lily Allen shilling for Sure? Not quite. The cheeky folks at ad agency Lowe Worldwide are using “Knock ‘Em Out”‘s infectious Professor Longhair sample for a sporty new Rexona/Sure/Degree spot. Not that Lily has anything against antiperspirant (one hopes), but seems an underhanded way to trade on her popularity, innit? Of course none of thi… More »

New Lily Allen Video – “Smile” (Simlish Version)

What do Pussycat Dolls, Depeche Mode, Black Eyed Peas and Lily Allen have in common? That’s right, they’ve all recorded a song in Simlish. You know, the native language used by characters in The Sims? (It was news to us, too.) Electronic Arts has announced a contest for which Sims players are encouraged to record… More »

Lily Tackles BRIT Politics

Winners were announced for the 2007 BRIT Awards, and despite the media and MySpace love, field-leading nominee Lily Allen (with 4 nods) went home empty handed. But conspiracy-theory Lily saw it coming. She spoke to MTV UK on the red carpet before the show:I already know I won’t win any awards. I bet you £100… More »

Lily Allen Talks “It”

Ahh, the customary right of passage for every girl-of-the-moment: Talk trash on “It” girls past. put Lily to the You’ve been labeled an ‘It’ girl so we were wondering what you thought of some of the others that share that title. What do you think of Jessica Simpson?
Lily Allen: I’m definitely not… More »

New Lily Allen Video – “Alfie” (And SNL Behind The Scenes)

Lily Allen’s music reminds us of last summer, so braving the cold to 30 Rock was a no brainer. YES, we just returned from the dress rehearsal for Saturday Night Live, which should be around 50% funny once they cut some slack for live. You’ll enjoy The Dakota Fanning Show (with Drew Barrymore as Abigail… More »

Lily’s Pick For Most Overrated Pop Star

Everybody’s-MySpace-friend Lily Allen is on the verge of a US invasion, beginning with a 2/3 performance on SNL and followed by a string of big city shows — making this a perfect time for loudmouthing. And we bit. Here’s Lily’s latest unsolicited (and likely, unrequited) barb at Madonna and her record-buying fan base (via PR-inside):… More »

2007 BRIT Award Nominations

The British music industry is ready to congratulate itself, yesterday releasing the list of nominations for this year’s BRIT Awards.

Alright, Shill

We know it’s hard to believe, but Lily Allen’s debut hasn’t been released in America yet. (That’ll happen on 1/30.) The singer is ushering in a domestic round of publicity with some MTV “Discover & Download” vignettes that are so cute we don’t have anything sarcastic to say about Urge.

New Lily Allen – “Smile (Version II Revisited)”

Or should we say “New Mark Ronson”? The producer/wedding DJ put together a glockenspiel-and-Motown remix of Lily’s cut for his forthcoming full-length Version. (P4K assumes it’s the same version that’ll be one of two bonus tracks on the US release of Alright, Still.) And Mark recently did the Authentic Shit show on East Village Radio,… More »

Lily’s Dog Is Back

And it returned with her cleavage! First Lily posted this distressed missive, but now she writes:I have the best news ever . Maggie May is back at home safe and sound . She is riddled with fleas a bit sad and very thin , but thats not the point . I can’t tell you how… More »
