Lily Allen Biography

Birthdate: May 2, 1985
Birthplace: London, England

Lily Allen may be a whirlwind of snark and controversy, but there’s no denying the British bad girl knows how to write a good song. Lily hit the big time in 2007 with her hit song, Smile and she’s been a fixture in the tabloids and on the music charts ever since.

A Reason to Smile

In 2006, Lily Allen sashayed onto the radio airwaves in Britain and broke onto the American charts a year later with her cutesie break-up anthem, Smile. Her debut album, Alright, Still was nominated for Best New Artist at the 2007 MTV Video Music Awards and Lily found her place in the spotlight as the outspoken bad girl with a taste for the obscene. Lily is known for speaking her mind, often to the detriment of her reputation. She swore at Elton John during an awards ceremony and has made some rude remarks about her fellow pop stars, Katy Perry and Kylie Minogue.

HerSpace

Back in 2005, Lily posted some of her first demos on her MySpace page and she’s been using the social networking site ever since. Some of Lily’s most controversial public statements have been taken from her blog, including the entry where she discusses her issues with weight and celebrity. Lily first released songs from her second album, It’s Not Me, It’s You, on MySpace before she made them available on a full-length album. Her hit single, The Fear, criticizes celebrity culture while simultaneously embracing it—much like Lily herself.
