Lily Allen kicks off TV show by branding Madonna ‘mental’

Singer also opens up about an eating disorder

Lily Allen has kicked off her new TV show by branding Madonna “mental” on it.

The London singer opened up about her private life in a new TV programme called Lily Allen: From Riches To Rags. It is set to air on Channel 4 next Tuesday (March 15) at 10pm (GMT).

Speaking about whether she’d consider still being a popstar in her fifties, the Mirror reports Allen as answering: “My idea of hell would be doing this in 25 years time.”


She added: “I don’t want to be like Madonna, look at her, she’s mental. No offence but that is not what drives me. I want to get married and have kids and make sandwiches cutting the crusts off.”

Elsewhere in the programme Allen speaks about suffering from an eating disorder around the launch of her 2009 album ‘It’s Not Me, It’s You’, and admits that she used to vomit after meals.

The programme charts Allen‘s launch of her clothes shop, Lucy In Disguise, her project with her sister Sarah. It was filmed last year.
