When Russian PM Vladimir Putin wants to watch a bare-knuckle fist fight, he isn’t going to let a measly Lily Allen concert get in the way. Contact Music reports that Allen was force to cancel a Saint Petersburg show in 2007, when Putin, a martial arts enthusiast and co-author of Judo with Vladimir Putin, chose to attend a fight nearby.
Lily Allen kind of reminds me of Scooby-Doo’s annoying nephew Scrappy (“Let me at ‘em!”) because she isn’t the least bit afraid of calling out Russia’s muscleman PM. “Last minute, he decided to go and watch a bare-knuckle fist fight” Allen said, “and therefore my concert got cancelled because of security issues. So whatever, Putin – I’m not into you.”
Hear that Georgia? Next time Russia invades, you should fight back with lines from Sex and the City.
