Lily Allen: "I feel like the general public should know what an arsehole everybody is" (Q335 preview)

lilyallenLily Allen says she feels its her duty to expose the reality of celebrity from within, as she returns with new album Sheezus.

Speaking in the cover story interview of our new issue, Q335 which is out in print and on digital tomorrow (29 April), the singer explains her attitude toward fame and the trappings that go with it.

“I feel like the general public should know what an arsehole everybody is,” she tells Q's Dorian Lynskey.

“Everyone is so scared about protecting this idea of a fabulous showbiz glamour and the reality is we’re all just sucking off some rich dude who owns a vodka brand. That’s what we see as an achievement.

“Maybe people want to believe in it. I believed in it when I was a kid and then I got here and I was disappointed. I want to tell everyone they’re lying.”
