Lily Allen has told a fan that while her recent output might be “docile pop rubbish”, she has some good new material in the bag, it’s just her label and radio chiefs have prioritised the dross. Because that’s what labels and radio chiefs always do, everyone knows that.

Allen was responding to a rather rude fan tweet which read “@lilyallen’s new music is actually docile pop rubbish. So disappointing. She properly just wrote some rubbish to cash some cheques”.

To which Allen responded: “What you’ve heard so far, yes. All I can do is do my best, the labels and the radio stations won’t play the better stuff”.

Of course the real villain here has just got off scot free. It was, after all, John Lewis which commissioned Allen’s tedious cover of Keane’s ‘Somewhere Only We Know’ for their yawn-inducing pre-Christmas bears cartoon. And for all their being a cuddly cooperative run for the mutual benefit of employees and customers rather than money-grabbing City types, we all know that deep down John Lewis is actually evil.
