In this corner


Today we have another inexplicably well-publicised Lily Allen sponsored gloves off in the music pages. Whereas yesterday she was thinking about gastric surgery and feeling fat and ugly, today she’s revealed its Cheryl Tweedy-Cole’s fault - you know the Girls Aloud singer that moonlights as a preening, self-absorbed wife of a middling footballer. Ding ding - corners please. It is time to take sides and pledge your support because the war of Girls Aloud Vs Lily could last years.

But, thankfully, London is blessed with a new contender and this one is outside the ring: 23 -year old Remi Nicole who has lived on the sunny side of the Thames all her life, flitting between Holloway, Islington, Highgate, Tufnell Park and presently residing in Highbury.

Her first single "Fed Up" is out this week on Island Records. She started gigging with Mr. Hudson and the Library a few months back and is now set to open for Amy Winehouse later this month. Just the thought of what's in store for her makes me smile - dare I say, Lily Allen-style.

Check out Remi's myspace page.

Cheryl is hands down the worst Girls Aloud has to offer which is why they always make her do the talking bits and never sing. What a sack of silicone shit!

Think I saw her on More 4 the other morning. Definitely one to watch. Crooning vocals.

Yes she has a stunningly clear voice. I also like her other single. It is uplifting.

Nice track, a bit Lily-does-Corinne.

The 'beef' between Cheryl and Lily is one of the great ones of our time: cf. Blur v Oasis? Biggie v Tupac? Daddy v Chips? Jordan v Jodie/Posh?

NB. By 'great' I mean 'pointless'.

I have nothing to say here...but any post which is by the lovely Lis, and has comments by the lovely Ella and the lovely George has to be addressed.

Ew, slimy. I think I just grossed myself out.

Cheryl Tweedy...where to begin? Was she the racist one who battered that poor girl in a nightclub? The one that married the *cough* manly Ashley Cole?

Lily has a valid point. At least she writes songs and doesn't mime. And her cover versions are miles better.

OK I've defended Lily in 2 posts in a row - can we talk about Kim Gordon or something now please?

Not so much Girls Aloud but Cheryl Tweedy-Cole vs Lily Allen.

There is no debate - the fact that LA is just celebrity bashing because she is miserable failing to be in the public eye past the C list.

I personally don't like pop music but i think that Cheryl Tweedy-Cole and her ensemble of band-mates can ring in my hears a lot less painfully than the currently winey Ms Allen.

So ladies and gentlemen voting should be closed and us as the judges should just put Mrs TC lightyears ahead of Ms Allen in beauty, weight (even though on the side of a size 0!) and the fact that she is married to one of societies believed elite.

xXx

Cheryl is not the worst one from Girls Aloud. They are all as good as each other. How does she always get the talking bits? She dosen't cos she CAN sing unlike Shitty Lily Allen who is the biggest twat eva.

Lily Allen Rocks! I'm an aussie so I have no idea who Cheryl is or Girls Aloud. I think that says something. The only reason Cheryl could offer lily a ticket to one of her "arena" shows is because there is probably spare tickets.

Whereas Lily has been doing sold out venues across the world. One today at Byron Bay, the 17,000 tickets sold out in 2 hours.

About Lilys myspace blog. Thats what it is, her myspace page, her blog, she has a right to say what she wants. If people don't like it, don't read it. Its a page for her fans. Its a place for her to vent, somewhere where she can say what she thinks. Instead of others who use a tv show to say something hurtful about her, airing it to everyone.

Yeah Lily writes her own music, some people may not like her style or genre. So what!

I love her style, she is awesome live and seems very down to earth. Cheryl on the other hand seems plastic, she has no success as a solo and I've heard all the racist stuff that went on. (I did a little research, as I had no idea who she was).
ANYWAY LILY ROCKS!!!! AUSTRALIA LOVES YOU BABY!!!
