Lily Allen admits her own singles are 'docile pop rubbish'

LILY Allen's music is 'docile pop rubbish' and 'so disappointing'. Or at least, that's what she thinks.

The "Not Fair" singer publicly agreed with a Twitter critic's description of her latest tunes, based on what fans have heard "so far".

Allen blamed Warner, claiming that the record label and radio stations "won't play the better stuff" from her forthcoming studio album Sheezus.

Following comeback single "Hard Out Here", Allen has released "Air Balloon", "L8 CMMR" and "Our Time".

But her emergence from a four year hiatus after quitting music in 2009 has seen the pop star involved in a run of recent controversies.

 

Most recently, the 28-year-old faced backlash after telling Shortlist that the word "feminism" should no longer exist.

"Feminism. I hate that word because it shouldn't even be a thing anymore," she said. "We're all equal, everyone is equal. Why is there even a conversation about feminism? What's the man version of feminism? There isn't even a word for it. Menanism. Male-ism. It doesn't exist."

The singer then defended herself against critics on Twitter: "Unless you're standing outside Downing Street with one of those Australian bush hats with dirty tampons in place of corks shouting 'equal rights for men and women', you've got no place telling me what kind of feminist I am or am not. F**k off."
