Lily Allen is a British artist known for light pop songs, usually with some form of satirical message behind them. She was born in London, 1985, to actor and musician Keith Allen and film producer Alison Owen. Her brother, Alfie Allen (a target of at least one of her songs), plays Theon Greyjoy on Game of Thrones.As a child, Lily attended some of the most expensive British Public Schools around, but got expelled from most of them for drinking and smoking, and dropped out of school at 16. At first, she was seen as immature and bratty, and was rejected by many labels which she attributes to her lifestyle. However, she still achieved mainstream success, and developed a much more mature image in music videos like "The Fear".Despite her school life and having a pretty similar past to even a criminal, she is talented in what she does and has achieved Grade 5 piano as well as Grade 8 singing. She also writes all of her own songs, which is actually pretty impressive considering the large amounts of subtext she puts into her songs ("The Fear" is a perfect example - "I'll look at the sun, and I'll look in the mirror" can mean this in a literal sense, but "The Sun" and "The Mirror" are also popular UK newspapers that regularly report on celebrities' lives).In 2012 she announced that in future she would be releasing music under her married name, Lily Rose Cooper. But then she decided to stick with Lily Allen after all. A new album is expected early in 2014. New singles called: "Hard Out Here" "L8" and "Air Balloon".
