Lily Allen recently spoke out against the lack of diversity at the BRIT Awards saying grime artists Stormzy and Skepta were overlooked for because "industry figures don't necessarily care about music, they mostly care about themselves."
The English singer went on to say:
"It is the awards ceremony Alan Partridge would approve of."
Partridge is a character played by comedian Steve Coogan and is a parody of British television personalities and the character enjoys music such as Wings and Abba.

So this was clearly a dig at the show being out of touch.
Well James Bay has his own opinions on the matter and isn't afraid to fire back in response to Lily's criticism!
The Hold Back the River singer spoke with Metro saying:
And it only costs about $1,600 a night!

Allen has been reportedly staying at Claridge's, a five-start hotel in the Mayfair area of London, and she's been seen attending parties and events without her husband over the past few months.
A source spoke to reporters about Allen's hotel habits, saying:
Lily Allen is on Tinder, but not because her love life is lacking!
In fact, the singer has been married to her husband, Sam Cooper, for four years. So then what the heck is she doing on an app that is widely known for hookups and dating??

Well, it turns out the sonbird is looking for friends, not love!
The 30-year-old apparently uses the popular app to meet new people while she's on tour! On her profile, she explains the last thing she wants to do with her potential friends is talk about work, saying:
Who says you can only have funky colored hair before your 30?? You can have funky colored hair for the rest of your life if you want to!
Nicole Richie does it and always looks fab!
Lily Allen debuted a brand new look on Instagram this week, and well, her new hair color might make you think of three things: summer, Beyoncé, or watermelons!

The Sheezus actress showed off her green and pink hurr and wrote:
"Not long till I'm 30 , one last hurrah on the hair front. 🍉🍉🍉🍉🍉 watermelon hurr dun care."
Hopefully there will be more hurrahs on the hair front even after this gal turns the big 3-0!
There's no shame in sporting rainbow hair when you're 31, 32, hell even 50! LOLz!

A LOT of flower power!
Lily Allen looked like she was wrapped in a bouquet of roses while performing at the Rose Ball in support of the Princess Grace Foundation in Monte Carlo on Saturday.

In fact her outfit was Chanel Couture, although it looked like a first-year design student's project for class.
Now, we love the roses haloing the singer's head, but why are they attached to a cheap-looking velvet robe???
We wish that part of the ensemble was a little more luxe! Like, almost any other material would've been better.
Underneath the hot pink coat Lily wore a silver sequined dress with fringed hem, which was a lot more couture-esque than the rest of her look.
Well, at least the roses were on theme with the event!
