No more blogging for MySpace queen Lily Allen?

“The thing is , im not going to write here so often now . this used to be one of my favourite things to do . I could come on here and vent how i feel honestly and get feedback from you guys . But the tabloid fucks have ruined it . Everything i write here gets twisted and rewritten buy a bunch of lazy fucks who havent got anything better to write about . And the truth is I don’t want to be in their fucking stupid magazines and daily fuck rags . Infact I hate it , i dont want to be a celebrity , I am a singer , I write songs , thats it . I don’t sleep and take drugs with famous people( i have a boyfriend ive been with for nearly 3 years ) , I don’t go to film premieres . I don’t go shopping in the paparazzi hotspots , so please leave me alone . Write about something interesting , and that actually needs to be alked about .” Not twisted, just quoted (spelling is Allen’s own).

Thing is, Lil, that it was all fun and games and the attention was lovely before it got out of your control. I do have some sympathy for celebrities seeking privacy; I don’t read stories or watch videos of people attending funerals, as I think it’s sick to prey on someone’s grief and I don’t like reporters who chase celeb kids around the place as they did not ask for the glow of attention that their parents might have done. I appreciate what you’re trying to say, but surely the dignified response is to say nothing? You must know by now that by ranting online what you say is going to get picked up by the media… right?

Of course you do. That’s the whole beauty of personal blogging. It’s the most exquisitely self-centred medium in the world.
