Lily Allen features in the February 2014 issue of Esquire magazine and revealed in her interview that people she once believed were her friends, showed their true colours after she became pregnant.
The 28-year-old singer, who retired four years ago to raise her children, says she was ostracised and bullied by her former showbiz pals. She said:
I thought the people in that showbiz circle were my friends. But almost the second I got pregnant and I wasn’t able to go out and party, they were suddenly quite nasty.
There’s a way that those people survive and it’s not by being nice. The way they make themselves feel powerful is to ostracise other people.
Lily is apparently severing ties with her old pals as she described them in not so friendly terms:
I feel like when I was growing up and dreaming of being a pop star, it was the days of Britpop when things felt authentic and anarchic and people were taking drugs and having a lot of fun and having sex with each other.
So excuse me if I found it a bit disappointing when I arrived and it was a bunch of sterile fucking Botoxed idiots that stank of desperation.
Care to share any names Lily?
