Lily Allen Admits That Her New Music is “Rubbish”

Have you been underwhelmed by Lily Allen‘s latest material? Turns out you’re not alone. However, your company may surprise you. Today, the British pop star took to Twitter to address her frustrations with her recent output, agreeing with a fan, Reg Wilding, who tweeted at her saying, “@lilyallen’s new music is actually docile pop rubbish. So disappointing. She properly just wrote some rubbish to cash some cheques.”

In response, Allen tweeted back, “@RFWilding what you’ve heard so far yes. All i can do is do my best, the labels and the radio stations won’t play the better stuff.” She continued to tweet at Wilding, asking for him to “keep the faith.”

Regardless of whether you agree with her, you have to respect Allen’s candor. But with her next album Sheezus on the way, will Allen’s honesty negatively affect her sales? Or is she simply telling us that the best from the album is yet to come? We can only wait and see.

Sheezus is out May 5 via Regal Recordings.

    I wish artists would stop selling out for 5 minutes of popularity because that is all it really is. You get 5 minutes not 15. 5 minutes is all you get then people ignore you. Do you. Make your music not what radio wants. If they don’t like it too bad. Your fans will stay loyal to you if you stay loyal to them. They find it so easy to go oh well if I don;t put out a radio friendly track no one will hear me. That has never been true and it isn’t true now. It takes effort is all. There are so many artists out there now that do it with independence and still go on world tours. It’s so corny that people are still selling themselves like hookers for a small chunk of public recognition.

    So true! Used to be a big fan of hers, but her music has no taste anymore.
