Lily Allen hasn’t been one to shy away from the cameras or the microphones and tell people exactly what she’s thinking. What this is exactly, is usually some sort of nonsense about how much she loves drugs, drinking and sleeping around. And while these sort of comments usually get nothing more than an eye-roll from me, this latest remark really has me thinking that Lily Allen really does not have a brain in her head. And that she should never, ever have children. From Digital Spy,
“Lily Allen is at the centre of another drugs row today after claiming that children should be allowed to try class-A substances.
The singer’s latest remarks come just weeks after she was criticised for suggesting that the use of cocaine is “no problem at all”.
Speaking about class-A drugs like ecstasy, Allen told Dutch magazine Revu: “Parents should say, ‘Drugs might seem fun, but they do funny things to your brain. Some people react to it good, some don’t. Try it and see what you think’.”
Yeah, try it and see what you think. Hopefully that line of coke doesn’t send you into a cardiac arrest on the first try. Hopefully you don’t get so high on hallucinogens that you end up trying to kill yourself or someone else. Hopefully you like it. This is just the most idiotic thing I’ve ever heard! It reminds me very much of when I was back in high school and all my friends (and myself) were talking about all the stuff we’d let our kids do that our parents wouldn’t let us do. Well, I grew up and now I wouldn’t let my kids do any of that stuff I said I would. But I guess the big difference there is that I grew up. I hope that in 23-year-old Lily Allen’s case it’s just a matter of waiting for her to do the same but I get the feeling that this is one young woman who will always live in Never-Never Land.
