Lily Allen has ''no control'' over her career.
The 29-year-old singer - whose recent album 'Sheezus' debuted at number one before quickly plummeting - bemoaned music executives choosing which of her new tracks are released as singles.
During a pre-recorded interview on Australian breakfast show 'Weekend Sunrise', she said: ''The actual industry side is messed up. I've got no control over a lot of it.
''They kind of made decisions for the wrong reasons. You deliver a body of work and then they basically put it into a market research machine and decide which singles will be released.''
Despite this, the London-born musician says she's ''100 per cent'' happy with 'Sheezus', which features the singles 'Hard Out Here' and 'Air Balloon'.
