In a sad sequel to the Kurt Cobain-Axl Rose clash of ’92, Lily Allen has dropped the hammer on Courtney Love for instigating a public argument at the NME awards earlier this week. Love’s beef began when she couldn’t get her hands on a Chanel dress for last week’s BRIT Awards and assumed Allen, a spokesperson for the brand, put a “lock” on it. Meeting at the NME affair, the pair reportedly had to be pulled apart by entourages, with Allen screaming “why the f— did you say that to me?” before leaving. “She’s upset because she has got it into her head that i put a lock on some dresses for the Brit awards,” Allen tweeted earlier today. “She’s made no secret of this and, when I saw her at the NMEs she tried to talk to me and I told her to shut up stop spreading stupid rumours about me…and thats pretty much it. I would never fight with her , as a rule I don’t pick on crazy old ladies.” When fans questioned the idea of anyone putting a “lock” on dresses, Allen cracked “It’s the sort of thing a paranoid drug addled lunatic might come up with.”
While Love hasn’t yet responded to the “crazy old lady” cracks, she previously tweeted that having such a lock would be a “compliment” and blamed her PR for the mix-up. Love also went on to direct more than a dozen (unanswered) tweets yesterday to ex-boyfriend Edward Norton, regarding $300,000 he may have lost in shady finances, why she spoke to the NY Daily News for an impending article about it, how he’s a “terrifically bad sexist,” how she resents “how stoic men are,” and how he’s “one of her very best friends,” which is why she had to “talk finances on twotter” [sic]. “I just want to give my ex who I love as a friend very much a shot b4 the lawyers descend and scandal.” By discussing it on a public twitter? It’s the sort of thing a paranoid drug addled lunatic might come up with.
