Lily Allen Regrets Cheryl Cole Feud, But Feels ‘Betrayed’ By Criticism From Other Women

Lily Allen has admitted that she regrets getting caught up in a feud with Cheryl Cole earlier in her career.

In the latest issue of Q magazine, Lily actually has nothing but good things to say about Cheryl, explaining: “I wish that whole thing hadn’t happened. I like Cheryl.

“She’s good on ‘The X Factor’, she’s pretty and she’s got balls. I like women who do well.”

The pair’s feud was first ignited back in 2006, when Lily featured a B-side named ‘Cheryl Tweedy’ (Cheryl’s name before she married footballer Ashley Cole) on her debut single ‘Smile’.

The song’s lyrics discuss Lily’s insecurities about her appearance, and she’s heard singing, “I wish I looked just like Cheryl Tweedy”, though she later claimed no one wanted to look like the Girls Aloud singer, adding: “They just think they do.”

Cheryl was asked about Lily’s comments during an interview with chef Gordon Ramsay on his show ‘The F Word’, and branded Lily a “chick with a d***”, prompting Lily to publish an open letter to Cheryl.

She wrote: “Cheryl, if you’re reading this, I may not be as pretty as you, but at least I write and sing my own songs without the aid of Auto-Tune.

“I must say, taking your clothes off, doing sexy dancing and marrying a rich footballer must be very gratifying, your mother must be so proud.”

Ouch. All water under the bridge now, right, ladies?

Meanwhile, Lily has admitted she feels let down when she is criticised by other women, saying it makes her feel “betrayed”.

The singer claims that she is often put down by other women in the name of feminism, though she has said she thinks her critics are often only doing it to make themselves look more clever.

During an interview with Glamour magazine for their June issue, Lily says: “It’s sad. Exhausting. Your own sex, in the name of feminism, hitting you back down.

“I do feel betrayed by my sex… People have got their own agendas these days. It’s obvious when it’s about ego and them wanting to sound clever.”

Lily has come under fire from feminists in the past, particularly after her controversial ‘Hard Out Here’ music video featured backing dancers pouring champagne over themselves and performing a raunchy twerking routine.

The singer is clearly keen for women to stick together, and
