Lily Allen slams rock royalty

She’s got no time for indie bad boys

Pop newcomer Lily Allen, has spectacularly dissed former Libertines star Carl Barat and indie darlings The Kooks.

Writing on her blog, the singer declared: “Boys, your regurgitated indie rock days are numbered so get over yourselves.”

Allen criticised Dirty Pretty Things’ frontman for his lack of eye contact backstage, stating: “Carl Barat is obviously convinced he is God or something.” She also dissed his band for including organic bread on their rider.


On Luke from The Kooks, Allen said: “I was quite annoyed at how much of a bad man he thinks he is. There is no excuse for wearing broken straw hats and dark sunglasses two storeys underground of Alexandra Palace while strumming your guitar like you’re treating everyone to an exclusive showcase for your next album – this is a dressing room and you’re not Jim fucking Morrison OK!”

Allen also disproved of Luke’s choice of backstage cover version, saying: “I don’t want to hear your rendition of ‘Waterloo Sunset’ four times in an afternoon.”

As previously reported on NME.COM, the hotly-tipped singer releases her debut album ‘Alright, Still’ on July 17 through Regal.
