I wasn't intending on posting about Lily "MySpace Sensation" Allen for quite some time but then I found out the world revolves around her.
From her war on terror/indie/whatevs (link) to her prattish behaviour at T In The Park (I'VE GOT A NO.1! I AM GOD!) to saying that she'd celebrate her chart success by dabbling in a few drugs (link), Lily Allen hasn't been terribly endearing as of late. Apart from in the eyes of her label bosses apparently. Lily has supposedly been paid 20k by Parlophone (or is it EMI?) after she didn't make the Mercury Music Prize shortlist (link). No, I don't get it either.
Anyways, Ms Allen is off on her first UK tour in October following her summer festival appearances. See her MySpace (link) for all the dates. I'm not overly sure but I think debut single LDN is being re-released around then as well.

Lily also popped into Jo Whiley's Live Lounge a couple of weeks ago for a BBC Radio 1 session, where she performed her latest hit 'Smile' and a cover of 'Naive', originally by The Kooks. She criticised The Kooks recently so I guess this is her way of burying the hatchet.
