Lily Allen Is Cartoony

Check out the May 2010 Australian edition of Harper’s Bazaar.

It’s an impressive move, especially if you want your magazine to stand out in the sea of monthly glossy covers. The artwork by David Bromley shows a topless Lily Allen with devil horns and a statement choker. The photograph by Alan Gelati came from the magazine’s January 2010 issue, where the 24-year-old singer/actress posed nude for a black and white fashion feature.

The treatment reminds me a bit of Nylon magazine’s edgy personality and artsy layouts. Had they splashed on neon colors, it would have looked like a page from Marvin Scott Jarrett’s mind.

Would you buy the Lily Allen cover of Harper’s Bazaar?

Brit Awards Red Carpet Showdown

The great thing about awards shows outside the US is that they don’t strictly follow the glam code. At the 2010 Brit Awards last Tuesday, it seemed as if the celebs in attendance were there to outdo each other in terms of dressing outrageously.

Lily Allen: Mum’s The Word

“It’s not fair and it’s really not okay!” or so her hit goes. The British popstar will be hitting pause on her singing career soon. She’s been hit with a combination of laryngitis and bronchitis and has been performing in pain. Ouch!

“I’ve had [it] for two months and I’ve just been doing so many gigs and not resting,” she told BBC Newsbeat. “I have been to an ear, nose, and throat specialist a few times and they stuck a big camera down my throat. It’s not very nice!”

Lily Allen’s last performance will be at the Dizzee Rascal concert at the O2 (London) in March 2010. “That’s the last thing I’ve got planned,” she said. “I’m just going to concentrate on doing some behind-the-scenes sort of stuff.”

Fans speculate that her one-to-two-year break isn’t exactly due to her bout of throat illnesses. There are talks that the 24-year-old popstar plans on pursuing an acting career. Not to worry; she’s not entirely giving up on the music industry.

“I’m going to get into signing new bands, but at a really early level,” she said of her plans to launch her own record label. “I don’t want to compete with other record companies, but I want to support new artists.”

She will also be focusing on her new clothing shop, Lucy in Disguise with her sister Sara. “It’s about making fashion democratic,” Allen explained. “It’s about getting really nice clothes, but letting people rent them for affordable prices so they can go out and feel like a million dollars and it won’t cost them a million dollars.”

I wouldn’t mind renting Allen’s quirky duds. Just don’t expect the popstar to be Twittering and blogging about her life updates anytime soon. In her recent—and perhaps final—Twitter post, she said: “I’m a neo-luddite. Goodbye.”


Lily Allen Hits Back

Chanel: Paris Fashion Week Ready-to-Wear A/W 09

She’s shown that she is not to be messed with – by hitting and kicking photographers. I guess she had her fill of paps and just snapped. No excuse, though, huh?


Cat fight!

Gordon Ramsay’s known for being rude, but even he must’ve been shocked at this sudden fight between Lily Allen and Elton John at the GQ Awards Night in London. Insults. Swear words. And rather crude ad libs about the honorees.

Is this an awards ceremony or a reality show?

Check out Lily Allen’s new do! Love it? Hate it? Doesn’t do much for her skin tone, but hey, everyone needs a change now and then!


Lily Allen gets dumped?


Have Lily Allen and her boyfriend called it quits? It’s common for couples to go through problems after a tragedy like a miscarriage. We hope they work things out — they’re so perfect for each other! (And they were spotted having lunch together Saturday…)


Lily Allen loses baby


Lily Allen has suffered a miscarriage. She and husband Ed Simons (of Chemical Brothers fame) were expecting their first child, and are “in a state of complete shock”.

Though Lily — nominated for a Grammy for best alternative album — has a reputation for being a wild child, her whole philosophy of life changed when she found out she was pregnant. Friends say that she was looking forward to being a mom.



“I can’t wait until Lindsay Lohan goes to jail. ‘Boo hoo hoo. I’m going to jail.’ Good. Does that mean you’ll stop showing me your pusssy now?”
