Lily Allen - Lily Allen slams 'beige' music industry

Lily Allen claims the music industry today is ''beige''.

The 'Air Balloon' singer has admitted to being ''f**king frustrated'' at the direction her musical comeback has gone in, after a four-year hiatus, and says she feels creatively controlled by her record label Warners.

Speaking at the VOGUE Festival, she revealed: ''I experience it at the moment re-entering the music industry. What you have heard on the radio station so far, the contribution of my album is very much the more beige, saccharine elements to what I have made.

''The reason for that is because the people in control of the radio stations, the people that are in control of the record companies, are too scared to put themselves on the line in case someone gets offended.

''If I said to my record company I really want to go with this song, they would say, 'Sure, here is £5 for the video'.''

The no-nonsense star also discussed how her family life with her husband Sam Cooper and their daughters Ethel, two, and Marnie, 14 months, had transformed her into a more optimistic person.

She said: ''My music has changed because I am happier. Beforehand on my last record I was a young woman who didn't know what the future held for her.

''Now I am very much in love, I'm married to a man that I'm pretty sure I'm going to spend the rest of her life with, I have two children who I love and adore so my writing comes from a more confident and settled and stable place. But I don't know if that makes it more tasteful.''
