Lily Allen goes into “shutdown mode” to deal with bad music reviews
The singer has been receiving backlash on Twitter recently but she says she has a coping mechanism
Lily Allen has the perfect coping mechanism for dealing with bad reviews – she just goes into “shutdown mode”.
Speaking in Oz, the singer, 29 , who’s been getting a bit of beef on Twitter lately, says: “I mean, that’s the only way to deal with it I think. It’s kind of boring talking about negative stuff all the time.”
She admits she’s knackered, saying: “I played at Latitude Festival on Friday, Benicassim on Saturday, and a French festival on Sunday, and then got on a plane to Australia.
“I don’t know if it’s advisable to do that kind of travel.”
It comes after the star admitted she was party to blame for her recent album Sheezus flop. Yikes.
Oh, and her rampaging hormones may have played a part, too.
Lily’s much anticipated comeback got off to a promising start last November, with the controversial Hard Out Here sneaking into the top 10 at No.9 and the poppier follow-up Air Balloon getting to No.7 in March.
But her third tune from Sheezus, Our Time, didn’t even make the top 40 and latest effort URL
Badman met with mixed reviews and has stalled at No.93. Awks. While Sheezus stormed in the No.1 slot on its release in May, it only spent 10 weeks in the top 40.
