Lily Allen “outraged” by royal wedding snub

Lily Allen

Yeah, when I first saw this story I thought “bollocks” too, but the word “outraged” really has come out of the mouth of Lily Allen. Or her fingers, maybe not her mouth. Her brain at the very least. Maybe all three. Allen is upset that Joss Stone has been invited to the royal wedding and she hasn’t, as both sang at the Princess Diana tribute concert in 2007.

Writing on Twitter, Allen said: “Well, you can quote me as ‘outraged’, why does bloody Joss Stone get an invite and not moi? I sang at the Diana concert too!”

Sarcasm doesn’t always come over well when written down (a number of comments on will attest to this), so I’m willing to believe Lily isn’t actually that outraged. She’ll still be able to watch it on telly, after all. Maybe Joss Stone doesn’t own a TV. Maybe that’s why she got an invite. That’s almost certainly it. Poor old Joss Stone can’t even afford a TV these days. There’s the real story.
