Lily Allen thought her photo of herself being arrested would make people “smile” (see what I did there, thanks) but actually, it made Australian police frown.
Ms. Allen thought it would be fun to get a shot of Australian police handcuffing her and her technicolor hair for her Instagram…and now an official police investigation is being launched to basically decide who the hell thought that would be a good idea. From TMZ:
The Australian Federal Police say officers were escorting Allen through Gold Coast Airport when she jokingly asked one of the cops to handcuff her … and she posted the picture on Instagram.
The AFP wasn’t happy about it and launched an investigation … acknowledging protocols were breached but then kind of justifying it by saying the officers were “caught in the moment.”
The photo has since been removed from her Instagram account, but TMZ got a snap before its disappearance:
Personally, I think it was a baaaad idea, and I think she realized that and deleted it.
What do you think of the pic?

It’s the 4th of July, so it’s only natural that the first story of the day is about a Brit, I suppose. Lily Allen is known for her kooky style, and she’s always been interested in staying ahead of the curve when it comes to trends. With that in mind, she’s gone and dyed her hair purple, orange, red and whatever other colours are in there. I think it looks great!
Lily describes this as her “unicorn princess” look, and frankly, if I had money and time to burn, I’d love to try it out. Or pink! I love pink hair. Of course, sometimes it can look not as great, like here:
Oh, and Happy Independence Day!

Lily Allen is great. She’s got a great sense of humour, she’s “cheeky” as hell, her music is great… I’m into it (and her new album is amazing, perhaps unsurprisingly). Well, she performed at G-A-Y in London on Saturday night, where she decided to have some fun by dressing up like Beyoncé and lip syncing to ‘Drunk In Love’.
Apparently she had buckets of water thrown over her while some dude stood in for Jay-Z and she danced around for the entire length of the song. It reads awkward, sure… and it actually probably was to witness, as well, but WHATEVER because I still think Lily is excellent. She sure ain’t no Beyoncé, though (and I think that was probably the point).
Oh wait, there’s video!

Lily Allen has been putting out some amazing shit in preparation for the release of her new album, Sheezus, and the title track hit the Internet on Tuesday. It’s SO GOOD. I wasn’t sure how I felt about all the name checking of the other pop stars and whatnot, but the song itself is so good that I started to love that, too.
I can already tell this is going to be one of my favourite albums of 2014. It needs to hurry up and come out!

I’ve pretty much been digging everything from Lily Allen‘s new album, Sheezus, that she’s released so far. Her latest offering comes in the form of ‘Our Time’, which is a pretty good song on its own but has a video that takes it to another level. So many Lilys, so little time!
Are you looking forward to her new album? Are you a Lily fan?
