Lily Allen's Ideas on Feminism and How to be a Man

Having stated that feminism "shouldn't even be a thing any more," Lily Allen responded to her critics by telling them to “f**k off”. The comments were made in in Shortlist, where she stated that "everyone is equal" and asked why there is no "man version of feminism".

Lily AllenCan you tell that Lily Allen doesn't care what you think?

In a message posted on Twitter, Allen offered up two demographics that are allowed to take issue with her ideals: "Unless you're standing outside Downing Street with one of those Australian bush hats in place of corks shouting 'equal rights for men and women', you've got no place telling me what kind of feminist I am or am not,” she said, adding: “F**k off."

The backlash to her comments happened to take place on International Women’s Day. "Oh my, internet you really can be a real C**T sometimes. #HappyInternationalWomen'sDay," Allen tweeted, sarcastically bemoaning the timing of her detractor’s timing.

"I like that when my husband gets up in the morning he spends about 12 seconds looking in the mirror and then leaves," she said in Shortlist. “I'm not into men who are vain, or even wearing aftershave. Men should be men. Go out, earn some money, come back and look after my children," she added, criticising the modern ‘metrosexual’ man.

"It's much the same [as it used to be]. But I don't think men are the enemy. I think women are the enemy. I know that when I'm sitting in a restaurant and a really beautiful woman walks in, who’s skinny, I instinctively think, 'Oh, she's really skinny and beautiful and I’m really fat and ugly.' So it's more of a competitive thing. It's weird. It's just really unhealthy and we're our own worst enemy," she said.
