Lily Rose Beatrice Cooper[1] (née Allen; born 2 May 1985), better kent as Lily Allen, is a Inglis recordin airtist an actress. She is the dochter o Keith Allen an film producer Alison Owen. Allen abandoned schuil when she wis 15 an concentrated on impruivin her performin an compositional skills. In 2005, she made some o her recordins public on Myspace an the publicity resultit in airplay on BBC Radio One an a contract wi Regal Recordings.

Her first mainstream single "Smile" reached the top position on the UK Singles Chart in Julie 2006.[2] Her debut record Alright, Still wis well receivit, sellin ower 2.6 million copies warldwide an brocht Allen a nomination at the Grammy Awards, BRIT Awards an MTV Video Music Awards. She began hostin her awn talk-show, Lily Allen and Friends, on BBC Three.

Her seicont studio album It's Not Me, It's You, saw a genre shift, haein mair o an electropop feel, rather than the ska an reggae influences o the first ane. The album debuted at nummer ane on the UK Albums Chart an the Australian ARIA Charts an wis well receivit bi creetics, notin the sangster's muisical evolution an maturity. It spawned the hit singles "The Fear" an "Fuck You", popular maistly in Europe.
