Lily Allen understands why music industry bosses prefer to release radio-friendly tracks rather than experimental material.
Lily Allen understands the music industry's need to play it safe.
The 29-year-old singer has previously admitted her single choices - particularly 'Air Balloon' - to promote her new album 'Sheezus' haven't been the best, but she understands why record label bosses opt to release radio friendly pop tracks compared to her more risqué material.
She explained: ''People fear for their jobs in this economy. No one wants to approve something that might offend. But the simple answer is, if people paid for music instead of stealing it, we'd be in a position where people would go with their gut instincts instead of being scared of losing their jobs. But I don't blame anybody. I write all my songs. I just feel sad that the record industry doesn't work like it used to.''
The outspoken star claims she'd love to go against the grain and release the more daring songs on her album, like the title track - which talks about the rivalry among pop divas to be number one - but she ultimately has to answer to her record label.
Lily added in an interview with Britain's Glamour magazine: ''I'd like to, but unfortunately I signed a record deal! I took a mortgage out on myself, that's how it works.''
