Why does Lily Allen suck?

Recommended Posts

To me it's a joke that Lily Allen gets the uber-super-uber-super prestigious Ivor Novello award for "Best song musically and lyrically" and Regina doesn't even get nominated. I mean seriously, Lily Allen is a talentless hack. It's a total case of the emperor with no clothes syndrome. She's only been elevated to this rank because she looks cute and the British public wants to eat her up based on that. How the hell does any of her hack "songs" measure up to "A Man of a 1000 faces" which SHOULD have been nominated and WON.

wow, I looked her up and she's ... poppy. She has a nice voice. Some of her lyrics are very catchy and meaningful. She's like a mix of Zooey Deschanel, Norah Jones, and Katy Perry.

I think this is why people don't like her (besides her drunkiness and the tendency of her clothes falling off), because of her stances and public statements about piracy:

"Everybody's at It and it's Not Fair, I Could Say, The Fear was Him but He wasn't There so let's go Back to the Start, before 22 - all music's in the public domain, so Fuck You."

love these covers:

The Clash - Straight to Hell (covered by Lily Allen)

E.L.O. - Mr. Blue Sky (covered by Lily Allen)

Keane - Everybody's Changing (covered by Lily Allen)

I don't like Knock 'Em Out, Nan Your a Window Shopper, and 22. Him is alright.

a few of her songs I like:

Lily Allen - It's Not Fair ('50s flashback)

Lily Allen - The Fear (her accent sweetens it)

Lily Allen - LDN (London) -- soo catchy, love the beat

Just a (possible) fun fact: I'm pretty sure this song was written for the Westboro Baptist Church. The reason I think this is, not only because of the lyrics, but because Lily Allen's father came here and did a report on the WBC for the BBC or something, and while he was there, he found a "This person is going to hell" sign with Lily's face on it. She probably got word and didn't appreciate it very much.

Thanks for the context behind the song. =) I love the sentiment behind it and guessed as much.

It remind me of this performance on Glee (not that I watch the show):

"Forget You (Fuck You)" - Gwyneth Paltrow

or alternatively

"Fox News (Fuck You)" - Cee Lo Green
