December 18, 2008 03:09:00 GMT


Lily Allen gets a "serious trouble" with her recording company EMI following her cover version of Britney Spears' single "Womanizer". She posts a message on her MySpace page thanking Mark Ronson, who played the song for the first time during his weekly show on December 12, and at the same time admitting that EMI are not happy with the situation.

Starting with a statement saying the reason behind her action to do the cover is because she loves Britney, Lily continues writing, "It wasn't my intention for it to have whizzed round the world like it has, Mark Ronson asked me for something no one had heard to play on his radio show and womanizer was the only song I had as an attachment on my blackberry and I couldn't get home to send him anything else in time."
