Lily Allen in all her blonde bewigged glory covers Elle UK‘s October 2009 issue. Elle UK must be working their way through the “substance abusing young women” section of their contacts list to find cover models these days.
I’m not sure what to think of the metallic/lace vibe threading its way through the whole photoshoot. However, I do have a few reactions to the interview, in which Lily claims to be shy.
‘Yes, I think I am [shy], actually. I get embarrassed when people come up and ask for autographs. I find it odd when people say, “Can I have your autograph?” because, why do you want my autograph? I really can’t figure it out.’
Which is the biggest bunch of disingenuous hooey I’ve ever heard. Shy people don’t do stuff like this. Or this. And I’m sorry, but the woman who claims to Google herself 10 times a day must realize she’s famous and that folks want famous people’s autographs.
Or maybe she just doesn’t want to be nice all the time.
‘I think people expect you to have a certain sense of decorum, but I almost find it like being a nursery teacher, having to be nice to people all the time. I haven’t got a problem with that, but I think people expect you to know how to deal with s**t.’
Yes, Lily. People also expect nursery school teachers not to use four letter words when they’re on the job! Good thing you’re not in that line of work!
