Lily Allen has come out of hiding to cover ELLE UK and to share with the world that her celeb pals are not eating and hooked on Adderall and speed. She also spoke about her own struggles with staying thin:
“I hang out with models, the biggest pop stars and, you know, really and honestly, I hate saying this, but none of them are achieving those body shapes by being healthy. They’re not just going to the gym two hours a day. They’re not eating or they’re taking speed not to eat. In America everyone abuses that Adderall stuff and people aren’t normal.”
“I wasn’t eating then, you know, [I was] going out at night. I guess when you’re not eating you have to distract yourself with other things. Come three o’clock it was like, ‘Oh I suppose it’s acceptable to have a glass of wine.’ And then by four o’clock I would have had four glasses. It’s not the way to be… “
Allen confirmed in September 2009 that she was taking a hiatus from music and would not be renewing her recording contract. Since, she has worked on her clothing store and record label, and unfortunately suffered another miscarriage. You know, I refuse to put this girl in the (ever-expanding) ‘Basic B*tch’ category. Sure, she did date that guy from the Chemical Brothers, but her husband of the moment is a very unassuming owner of a building company. Not very swag at all. She writes all her own songs, is completely outspoken and tells it how it is, and even flashed her third nipple (!) on TV. Nice to see someone admit the obvious about how celebs stay thin in a world of anorexic b*tches who claim ‘I work out a lot/am naturally slender’ blah blah. Spotted at Complex.
