Pop singer Lily Allen announced she was “retiring” from the music industry three years ago but decided to return to the scene late last year with the single Hard Out Here, along with a controversial video featuring those misguided former Britain’s Got Talent contestants the CEO Dancers.
Hard Out Here failed to set the chart alight and Lily has not released her new album titled Sheezus (*rolls eyes*) yet. So imagine my surprise when I spotted her smug mug on the front cover of today’s Evening Standard showing off her NME Award for ‘Best Solo Artist’ at last night’s ceremony (others nominated in the category – David Bowie, Sir Paul McCartney and Kanye West).
This win does not make any sense to me. What has Lily achieved musically over the last three years to deserve an award? As far as I am concerned any credibility that NME had has now disappeared down in to the sewer, thanks to this highly suspicious move.
All I want to know is who paid you off NME?
