Lily Allen has made an unusual admission on Twitter - agreeing with a critic who said her new songs were 'rubbish' and 'disappointing'.

The admission came after a fan tweeted that he found Allen's new material to be far below satisfactory, feeling instead like it was a simple cash grab. Choosing to respond she agreed with the fan and chose to point the finger instead at Warner, who she claims are holding back the best material from Sheezus and radio stations who refuse to play it. 

 

So far Allen has released four tracks from Sheezus: 'Hard Out Here', 'Air Balloon', as well as 'L8 CMMR' and new single 'Our Time'. As the fan states the tracks have unfortunately failed to impress and have also been mired by various controversies relating to gender politics and race. 

Most recently Allen was embroiled in a spat with journalists after she claimed that feminism was an obsolete concept in a Shortlist interview. Following the publication she claimed that she had been misquoted by journalist and told critics to "fuck off".

Below: 10 classic Lily Allen quotes

  • "Cheryl [Cole], if you''re reading this, I may not be as pretty as you but at least I write and SING my own songs without the aid of Auto-Tune," said Lily as she slammed the star''''s talent.

  • "I must say that taking your clothes off, doing sexy dancing and marrying a rich footballer must be very gratifying, your mother must be so proud, stupid b*tch," said Lily in another rant against Cheryl.

  • "Lady GaGa is good, but she''''s a new artist, Britney Spears is a legend. They are two different artists, two forms of entertainment but very different, it''s like comparing Picasso to Dali."

  • "I have Katy Perry''s number, someone did me a favour. I''m just waiting for her to open her mouth one more time and then it hits Facebook," she said as she threatened to share the US star''s personal details.

  • Following her own success Lily shocks us with her plans after singing: "I think I might try and get into cricket commentary once I''ve finished singing."

  • But before any cricket Lily says she wants to branch out and write for other artists: "I''m still writing songs all the time and I won''t be writing just for myself anymore. I want to write for Lady Gaga."

  • Lily Allen revealed she was no Tory voter, when she said at a live show: "I''d like to dedicate this next song (''F**k You'') to someone. David Cameron."

  • As a war of words loomed between Lily and Courtney Love, she said: "As a rule I don''t pick on crazy old ladies."

  • "Perez Hilton is an irritating wasp in the beautiful rose garden that is my life."

  • Not a Belieber Lily? "I had no idea who this #justinbieber person was, just found out he''s that kid that''s always on the TV when I''m in the gym. He''s about 5 right?"
