Backpedalling! Lily Allen Does Not Support Drug Use, Or So She'd Like Us To Believe Now

| Filed under: DrugsLily Allen


Not surprisingly, Lily Allen's shocking statements regarding drug use were supposedly taken out of context, or so she claims.

In an interview with The World Magazine, Miss Allen said, "The only story is that drugs are bad and they will kill you. You will become a prostitute or a rapist or a dealer. But that's not true. I know lots of people that take cocaine three nights a week and get up and go to work every day, no problem at all. But we never hear that side of the story" which the tabs took to mean "OMIGOD LILY ALLEN SAYS EVERYONE SHOULD DO DRUGS!"

But, what they forgot to include was that in the original interview Lily added, "But I get very anxious around people who are on drugs, because it reminds me of being a kid. I can spot the signs of people being a bit gakked up very quickly. It terrifies me. That's why I took cocaine when I didn't even like it."

Bowing to the tabloid uproar, Lily's camp has issued the following statement:

"At no point [during the Word interview] does [Lily] say that drugs are a good thing or that she condones drug use. In fact, she says that 'I can spot the signs (of people on drugs) and it terrifies me' … Lily Allen would like to state unequivocally that she does not condone illegal drug use and has every sympathy with individuals and families whose lives have been blighted by drugs."


But she has said in the past that she's used drugs and will likely use them again.

Shit, she couldn't even apologize properly.

    Regardless of what a lot of people would LIKE to think, the majority of teens and young adults have experimented w/drugs at some point. I understand her position.

    Seriously is this the only way this one hit wonder can garner any publicity. Why the fuck ppl even deem her significant is beyond me. Boohoo go cry n act like the spoiled brat that u are to someone who actually gives a fuck about you.

    Apologize properly? For what? Since when are you the morality police, Pervez? She shouldn't have to apologize for shit. I'm sorry, but I don't know anyone who hasn't dabbled with drugs at some point in their lives. Just like you did, Pervez.

    i totally agree with that lily's blog one time…
    she's no good in anything she does

  27. 27

    can we say bias much perez? you wouldnt dare say anything like this about your Precious Katy or Gaga… and I am sure that they are not angels. You pick on Lily Allen as if its necessary in life. Leave the girl alone already would you?

    i'm not saying drug use is a good thing–it's not, obvs–and i understand what she's saying. she's not saying that drugs aren't dangerous, she's just saying that if you use drugs, you won't necessarily end up living in a cardboard box and sucking off your dealer for crack…some people are functional drug users (like she said, they do coke and can still do their job) and not all people who use drugs get addicted. she has a point, a lot of the time the media makes it seem like if you try any drug even once, it will set you off on an irreversible downward spiral, which isn't necessarily true. perez, i'm a long-time reader of your site, but i think you're willfully misunderstanding what she's saying just because you don't like her, which is kind of petty and childish.

    why the fuck should she apologise, the whole thing was a storm in a tea cup anyway. What she said was perfectly correct, most people who recreationally use drugs do not cross the line, it is a pitiful few who slide into addiction and further criminal behaviour.

    She hasn't done a damn thing wrong! She's being crucified for relatively benign statements. Not only did she get taken out of context, the statements she made that WERE slightly on edge (i.e. "People just don't know how to do drugs" or whatever) were TRUE. Go Lily.

  31. 31

    I love her!!! Go on with your bad self Lily girl!!! Your beautiful and talented…snort whatever you want!

  32. DaLa says – reply to this


    Wonder what caused that miscarriage she had recently. Hmmmm? Drugs can do bad things to babies.

  33. 33

    Lilly's totally right, too bad the media is too stoopid to get that.
    Drugs are only bad when used to escape.

    Whatever she's an amazing singer no matter what!!

  35. 35

    Re: anaLOVESpaul – hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha. luv, you may like her, but purlease dont make me laugh and say such stupid retarded things. amazing singer? no hun. amazing singers - winehouse, leona, mariah, whitney, mary j, alicia keyes. they are what you call amazing singers. REAL VOICES. if lily wasnt as 'controversial' as she attempts to be and didnt have a semi famous dad, no one would give a flying fuck about her. you may like her, thats fine, but amazing singer she is not. her voice is so weak - hence all the touch ups if you listen closely. she cant hold a tune. hence the reason she has to be an arsehole to get publicity cos her music alone just dont cut it. oh people. when will you wake up and smell the coffee?

    Re: omgkatiekatiekatie

    THANK YOU! In other news Perez, there's a big difference between somebody who smokes weed a few times a year and alcoholics or crackwhores. I doubt that Lily Allen will stop smoking weed, which is officially a drug, nor that she meant that she'll go out on a giant meth rampage.
