Lily Allen Calls People of Showbiz 'Idiots'

The uncensored singer also says in a magazine interview that people in the entertainment business are mostly fake.

Lily Allen couldn't help to express her dislike of the typical people in showbiz. The "Smile" singer said entertainers nowadays are bunch of "botoxed idiots that stank of desperation."

In an interview with U.K.'s Esquire for their February issue, Allen was disappointed with how the show business has changed from what she had imagined. "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 and it wasn't fake, it was real," she said.

The 28-year-old singer continued, "So excuse me if I found it a bit disappointing when I arrived and it was a bunch of sterile f**king botoxed idiots that stank of desperation."

The mother of two also blasted fake friendships in the industry. "I thought the people in that showbiz circle were my friends," she told the mag. "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."

Allen felt the pressure of fame will never leave her, saying "It's hard for me because I will eternally feel like that little bullied girl at school, because that's what I was." She briefly took a break from music but has returned with the single "Hard Out Here". "I think once you're exhausted physically and mentally, it does get you down," she added.
