Lily ‘welcomes’ work with Miley
Lily Allen met Miley Cyrus for the first time last week.
The singer was accused of mocking Miley in the provocative music video for her single Hard Out Here, which received more than two million hits in the first 24 hours of its release earlier this month.
But Lily says reports of her being a bully couldn't be further from the truth. She flew to Los Angeles last week and met up with Miley, and says she admires the scandalous 21-year-old pop star.
“I’d never met her before so I couldn’t say we are really great friends but I do really like Miley,” Lily told UK newspaper The Mirror.
“She’s funny, witty and clever, I love what she does. I think her and Lorde’s album have had the most plays in my car this year. I never went on record saying the video was a direct pop at her – it wasn’t… She’s probably way too busy for someone like me but yeah, I’d welcome the opportunity to work with her.”
Lily suggested critics are simply creating a music rivalry out of nothing.
The star feels no inclination to explain herself to anyone, including Miley.
“People have come up with so many conclusions about that video that if I had to explain each of them I’d be there for hours,” she said. “So I didn’t feel the need to explain anything to her when it came out. Anyone who knows me, or follows me on Twitter, knows I love that girl more than anything…”
