Nan, You're A Window Shopper

Lily AllenUK's Lily Allen(and recent Best Pop Artist winner at the Digital Music Awards[info]) kicks off her brief 5-date North American jaunt tonight in Toronto at Lee's Palace. Now who's excited? I am, I am!

Lily continues to speak her mind out, recently expressing some honest criticsm about Paris Hilton["Paris is hideously untalented."] and Peaches Geldof["I find it really offensive, like she did this like documentary about Islam and it was really awful."]. Thanks to Dlisted's post to bringing this to my attention. Although MTV UK reports that Lily says that whatever she said about wanting to 'slap' Peaches Geldof was said sarcastically. Ummm, I have this urge to yell out "Peaches" tonight at the show and hear how Lily responds.

Music Like Dirt has a neat compilation for our downloading pleasure. The compilation includes the originals of all the tracks Lily samples on her album "Alright, Still", and a few others that may or may not have been influences. Be sure to read the commentary for each track - interesting stuff. [via ::: believe the hype]

Zeon has a few remixes of Lily's "LDN" available for download here and a few more b-sides for download including Lily's "Nan, You're A Window Shopper" here. "Nan, You're A Window Shopper" is a parody of 50 Cent's "Window Shopper". Read Lily's lyrics, and compare them to 50 Cent's lyrics.

Stereogum has an mp3 download of Lily Allen covering Keane's "Everybody's Changing".

Here's the envelope that Lily designed for the 'Pitney Bowes Pushing The Envelope 2006' charity auction with funds going to the National Literacy Trust.[via The Music Slut] Story over at NME.

The San Francisco Chronicle recently interviewed Ms. Allen.
