Lily made her rapid ascent to pop stardom through MySpace.com, where she boasts an incredible half a million friends.
The brutally honest Londoner is always quick to tell fans exactly what she thinks via her phenomenally successful blog, but despite her quirky street style and loud mouth, she remains something of a living contradiction.
Born to actor father Keith Allen and producer mother Alison Owen, she enjoyed a privileged upbringing at private schools, and even got a part in one of her mother's films before launching her music singing career.Yet Lily goes from strength to strength, working on a follow-up to her bestselling album Alright, Still, receiving rave reviews of her live performances and designing a high-street fashion line.
Packed with incredible facts, including the full story of her relationship with Chemical Brother Ed Simons and from behind the scenes of her first TV series, this is a must read for any fan.

Review by nicola26
Not a bad book, for what it is. I can't say I really loved it, because I really dislike biographies as a whole, but I genuinely found this one quite interesting and there was no point in the book where I was bored. It gives a good overview of Lily's life up to a few years ago, and from an objective point of view for the most part. It definitely helped me understand Lily's songs a lot more, which often come across as rather light. After reading the book, I can definitely see that there's a much deeper meaning to her songs, and I can appreciate her music a lot more now. I definitely liked this one.
