Lily Allen


Lily Allen has always been "mouthy," so her latest comments shouldn't come as too much of a shock.

However, the singer's interview with Esquire magazine's U.K. edition for their February issue (on newsstands now) may still raise some eyebrows. The cover star blatantly expressed her disappointment with show business, explaining that what she became acquainted with after gaining fame was far from what she had imagined.

"I feel like when I was growing up and dreaming of being a pop star, it was the days of Britpop when things felt authentic and anarchic, and people were taking drugs and having a lot of fun and having sex with each other and it wasn't fake, it was real," she said.

"So excuse me if I found it a bit disappointing when I arrived and it was a bunch of sterile f--king botoxed idiots that stank of desperation."

And there you have it. Allen also shared a photo of the mag cover on Instagram and wrote, "I don't pop Molly, I rock TomFord when on the cover of Esquire."

The mother of two recently explained during an interview with The Guardian that she's never been one to stay quiet, despite being told otherwise by music executives early on in her career.

"I've always been called ‘mouthy,'" she admitted. "When, in fact, I'm just talking. In the music industry, women have always been controlled by male execs, told to do the Kate Moss thing. Keep your mouth shut, or people will laugh at you. They've been talking about us like this for years, basically."
