Happy Birthday Lily Allen: The ‘Sheezus’ Singer’s 29 Most Funny, Honest And Outrageous Quotes

We can’t quite believe it, but it’s now been eight years since Lily Allen burst onto the scene and shot to the top of the UK charts with her debut single ‘Smile’. Since then, she’s released two number one albums and is gearing up for her third release ‘Sheezus’, which is available from next week.

Originally catching our eye for her clunky gold jewellery, garish eyeshadow and penchant for matching prom dresses with trainers, Lily has gone on to become one of the UK’s most talked-about and best-loved singers, as famous for her infectious melodies as she is for her honest, relatable and – at times – brutal lyrics.

But Lily’s honesty isn’t reserved specifically for the recording studio. As her career has skyrocketed, she’s also become a tabloid staple thanks to her strong opinions and the refreshing way she’s always spoken her mind… even if it has been to her own detriment at times.

As it’s Lily’s 29th birthday today, we’ve rounded up 29 of our favourite quotes from past interviews, and even thrown in a few of her most shockingly honest song lyrics for good measure.
