The father of British pop star Lily Allen, actor KEITH has defended his daughter's recent blog outbursts. Lily has admitted to suffering from homesickness recently after spending an extensive period in the US touring and promoting her hit album Alright Still. The 54-year-old says, "She felt down about going on tour in the US and has been alone on the road. That's very hard. "The fans think it is a wonderful life when it's actually monumentally dull and spirit-breaking."
