The Streets’ Mike Skinner and singer Lily Allen have been feuding for the past 4 months after Skinner called Allen a hypocrite for both complaining about the paparazzi and constantly courting their attention. She then hit back, calling his music “boring,” and now he has accused her of stalking him.
Back in October, Skinner presumably started the feud by telling The Sun, “Whenever you read Lily Allen’s blog she’s moaning about some paparazzi bastard. It makes me think: ‘Stop giving them such good stories to write about and it’ll all go away’. For God’s sake people, don’t you get it? She wants all of the photographers following her round. She needs it.”
Last week, Allen finally thought of her comeback: “There’s a guy called Mike Skinner who records as The Streets and he did a record that basically talked about how awful it was to be rich and famous.” she said. “I found that really boring.”
Where could Skinner respond to this? If only he could post something short and sweet, via cell phone perhaps. Oh yeah, he has a Twitter! “I’m glad Lily Allen thinks my music is boring. At least she’s not stalking me any more,” Skinner posted.
