Lily Allen: “Oh Shut Up Libertines Fans!”
The chart-topper gives obsessive fans a tongue lashing
Lily Allen has hit back at Libertines fans for giving her grief and being obsessed in a dangerous way.
Speaking in an interview in this weeks NME, Allen " who brought her sweet music to Oxegen festival last weekend " responded to the grief shes received as a result of slagging off Carl Barat.
Libertines fans gave me a lot of sh*t, but I think they're all obsessed with that band in a really dangerous way," she said. "I get hate mail all the time! I like it. I feel bad for my fans who send me nice messages because I tend to only reply to the really horrible ones. People are constantly being rude about me, especially after The Kooks and the Carl Barat thing."
She added: "I like lots of indie bands. I'm a fan of good guitar music. I think it's just that at the moment everyone's like, 'Music's so great, we've got these great indie rock bands' but in reality they all sound the same. They're just doing what S Club 7 and Steps did - regurgitating the same songs because that's what people are buying at the moment."
