Kooks singer chides Lily Allen for canelling US tour dates

Posted May 1st, 2007 by eric

Lily Allen and The Kooks have had an ongoing sparring match, ever since Allen slammed the band for taking itself too seriously last summer. But then Allen presumably had kissed and made up with a cover of The Kooks’ “Naive” on her “LDN” single.

Well, Kooks singer Luke Pritchard has turned around and slagged off Allen for recently cancelling her American tour: “People are different and Lily finds it hard being away from home,” Pritchord told The Mirror, “but how hard is it playing your music and having people asking you about yourself? That’s what it’s all about.”

It is a completely spoiled brat move, especially for a singer who has shot to fame without really paying any dues. But if she can get away with it, more power to her.
