Allen Brands Her Dad 'Useless'

Fiery LILY ALLEN has blasted the SPICE GIRLS, modern music, and even her own father in an explosive new interview.
The Smile singer branded the Wannabe hitmakers not "real", and hit out at British pop band S Club 7 for making "rubbish" music.
She even took aim at her dad, actor Keith Allen - insisting he's "useless" and "not a responsible adult" for walking out on the family when she was just four years old.
In the interview with Britain's Sky Arts channel, to be aired on Tuesday (08Jun10), she says, "He had just always been like that, that's his personality and my mother knew that that's what he was like when she got involved with him and he's still like that now. He's rubbish, he's not a responsible adult. He lives in the countryside now so he's not got so many distractions as he did before but I don't really blame my dad for how he is...
"I feel I know that about him so I still want to have a relationship with him so I make the effort to go and see him, I don't expect him to come and see me just because I know what he's like and there's only so much you can say, 'Oh, that person's useless' because it's pretty pointless."
Allen also admits she was "irritated" by modern pop culture in the 1990s and early 2000s, adding: "Well the music was rubbish. Well these are the days of bands like S Club 7 and the Spice Girls. I mean they are great for what they were but for someone who read a lot of books and engaged in conversation with people quite a lot, I felt if I'm going to be a pop star I want to be a real pop star and I want to say real things."

I fully agree with Lily Allen's comments on The Spice Girls and S Club 7. These groups were awful, they couldn't sing, and produced rubbish music! The present music scene is much better thankfully.

I find it utterly disgraceful and true to form that 12 minutes after the showing of lily's interview someone is trying to "mash up words and make them whatever they want".... I notice you didn't mention that part of her interview. Reality is you have no idea about lily Allen and are trying to make a quick £ out of an interview. Welldone on a fully covered artile on tonights showing of her interview, maybe next time you think about writing an article on something, it may be a good idea to actually watch and listen to what is being said.
