Gwyneth Paltrow & Chris Martin Once Staged an Intervention for Lily Allen

Gwyneth Paltrow & Chris Martin Once Staged an Intervention for Lily Allen

I was naked, too.

The Smile singer addresses the feud in her new memoir, My Thoughts Exactly, claiming that her discomfort with her own sexuality, and her perception of Cheryl's, made her feel threatened. The interview claims she wanted to name the executive in the book, but did not after being advised by her publisher. She expresses her frustration that she did not confront or report the man's behaviour, and carried on working with him, explaining that she felt silenced because he had more power and money than her, and that she feared being labelled "hysterical" and a "difficult woman".

Allen said in an interview with Guardian Weekend magazine that, despite the groundswell of stories of sexual abuse coming out of Hollywood over the MeToo movement, music industry insiders are remaining largely silent about the issue. She writes about touring with Miley Cyrus, going to American strip clubs, having affairs with female backing dancers and consuming the amount of drugs you'd expect from someone who's music A-list.

Allen, whose latest album, No Shame, has been nominated for the Mercury prize, says she blamed herself for the assault because she had been drinking.

She added: "In film and TV, you can choose not to work with any of those people again".

Hurricane Florence: Carolinas brace for life-threatening storm
The Wilmington airport had a wind gust clocked at 105 miles per hour (169 kph), the highest since Hurricane Helene in 1958. Then it is likely to hover along the coast Saturday, pushing up to 4m of storm surge and unloading water on both states.

Allen says that she met with a record industry executive who pretended to "want to help her get clean", but who instead "got her drunk on tequila". But I felt amusing about it. The 33-year-old singer revealed that she reportedly "woke up to find him trying to have sex with her in a hotel room".

Allen wanted to "write it off", but she approached her lawyer and signed an affidavit detailing her experience.

In the future, Allen said she hopes that the next generation will be more prepared to deal with the predatory nature of the industry.

She awoke hours later to the man joining her in bed. In response, she says that she was "punished by Radio 1, with no airplay for my next single, 'Trigger Bang.'" She said, "I just couldn't tell them why I couldn't take the slot". It's just that he had all the power and I had none.

In 2006, Lily released a song called Cheryl Tweedy, which featured a lyric that said she wished she looked just like her.
