Is Lily Allen Hot Or Not For Benedict Cumberbatch?

Lily Allen is one of our favorite pop voices and one of the most vocal critics of pop culture. So, we put her tastes to the test in our VH1′s Pop Culture Quiz. Lily had to swipe right for “It’s a go!” and left for “Hell no!” So, where did popular celebrities like Benedict Cumberbatch and Jared Leto land for Allen? The answers may surprise you…

Objectify My Love: Lily Allen Pushes Buttons With The Miley Mocking “Hard Out Here”

It’s been a hot minute since we last heard from Lily Allen, the British songstress who has built her reputation on her unwillingness to play by the rules that govern today’s celebrity industrial complex. Her last album, 2009′s It’s Not Me, It’s You, gleefully genre-hopped from electro to country & western to pure pop, all the while making sly, sarcastic statements about the fetishization of celebrity (“The Fear”), boys who don’t believe in the concept of equality in the bedroom (“Not Fair”), and her issues with the politics of George Bush (“F*** You”). Allen took the last few years off to start a family, but she clearly kept one eye on the way popular culture was evolving (devolving?) while raising her two daughters. Her first statement as a new mom, “Hard Out Here,” dropped yesterday and immediately made waves online thanks to its timely critiques of the likes of Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke. However, while we applaud the underlying sentiment of the song, we can’t help but feel like the final video treatment ends up betraying the song’s message.

P!nk And Lily Allen School Us In “True Love”

Like much of what we’ve heard from the album so far, this latest Truth About Love offers a lesson in love. Again P!nk‘s hurting, but instead of walking out the door like she does in “Blow Me” or putting in overtime like with “Try,” this round she’s writing the troubles and frustration off as side-effects of “True Love.”"I hate you, I really hate you,” she sings over the jaunty beat, letting a beat bounce by before she finishes: “so much, it must be true love,” because “no one else can break my heart like you.” Did you think this would be easy? Truth About Love officially hits shelves and digital music libraries next Tuesday, and we’re already feeling pretty schooled.

Produced by the legendary Greg Kurstin, “True Love” notably features the first bit we’ve heard from Lily Allen since her 2009 “retirement” (and the first we’ve ever heard from Lily Rose Cooper). Unfortunately, she only appears for a brief verse towards the end of the song, more a preview than a grand return. That said, she sounds in fine form turning sharp lines like “why do you rub me up the wrong way” while sounding sweet as ever. Read more…

Anticipation for P!nk’s The Truth About Love keeps growing and growing. We’ve already adopted the album’s first single “Blow Me (One Last Kiss)” as our break-up anthem and gone giddy over the news that expectant mother Lily Allen and P!nk’s cute daughter Willow will be featured on the album. And today, the word gets better still because Eminem and Nate Ruess of fun. have joined the mix, as well! Babies, rockers and rappers — is there no one P!nk can’t work with?

P!nk Confirms Lily Allen Collaboration For Her New Album

Looks like new moms P!nk and Lily Allen will be together in their return to music! P!nk announced on Carson Daly’s radio show that Allen has joining the already impressive list — which so far only includes P!nk’s 13-month old daughter Willow, who is apparently “better on bass than” her mom — of confirmed features for her upcoming album, The Truth About Love. “For the last 14 years, everyone has said no. But this album, everyone said yes,” she said of the get. “I think that’s because people think I’ve softened.”

Both women are currently at work with producer Greg Kurstin on their albums, and so this collaboration makes perfect sense. Aside from the fact that they are both new moms, both P!nk and Lily Allen are known for their no holds barred attitude, as well as their sense of humor when it comes to music. We imagine whatever they come-up with will be fun and full of kick. And as for Allen, who has only just returned to making music after years away, a high-profile feature like this will surely whet fan’s taste for more. And hey, if we’re lucky, maybe P!nk will return the favor!
