Lily Allen: Who'd have thought?

Firstly, Lily, it's Who'd have Known, not Who'd of Known, isn't it?

Secondly, putting a song on the internet doesn't mean you don't have to clear samples of any copyright infringement - didn't the BPI teach you anything?

So, then, Lily has put up a song which she cheerfully admits is based on a Take That tune and charmingly trills:

"I ripped off the chorus from Take That and I can't be bothered with the paperwork."

As if she's responsible for her own paperwork - after a hard day thinking up a rhyme for Waitrose, she then sits down at a big desk, by candlelight, making sure all sources are acknowledged.

Still, it's great to hear that - from Allen's perspective - copyright ceases to exist if you only use the stolen material on the internet. Let's hope she's not planning on too many people buying her second album...

Yes, poor Lily, with her best selling album and her own TV series, she really needs a "break". Nobody's ever given her a chance.

Maybe if she didn't publicly bitch about other people so much she might seem deserving of a slightly easier ride. But I doubt it.
