Paparazzi fodder aside, love her or hate her, Lily Allen is fun to follow, and today is perfect proof: Not only did Ms. “LDN” join the likes of David Bowie in defending radio institution BBC 6 Music, but she also weathered an inevitable Courtney Love storm.
“I read that they want to invest in quality over quantity, but how does that make sense?” Allen wrote in the Guardian of the BBC’s rationale for giving their beloved radio station the axe. “If they close 6 Music, instead of acts like Seasick Steve and presenters like Lauren Laverne, it will be the Pussycat Dolls and Fearne Cotton on Radio 1.”
True that. I mean, we’d totally rather listen to Seasick Steve, the musical Epic Beard Man, over a couple non-Mariah/Beyoncé pop stars any day. We’ll see, of course, but meanwhile Courtney Love would love to respond to a few choice Allen remarks:
I can’t believe someone who did massive amounts of cocaine at my house and was thrown out blamed me for drugs, said I gave her shrooms…
publically she said I gave her hallucinogens, when she did about a kilo with my daughter asleep upstairs, and had to be physically removed.
There’s more where that came from, but you get the point: lots of drugs floating around the Cobain estate. Good luck with all that.
