Lily Allen confirms Glastonbury gig

Lily Allen will be performing at Glastonbury, she has confirmed.

The 28-year-old singer, who took time off to have her two daughters, has recently made her chart comeback and told BBC Radio 1 that she would be singing at next year's music festival.

She said: "I'm playing Glastonbury. It's official. I got the news yesterday (Monday)... my spiritual home. I'm doing an acoustic session at the stone circle on Sunday night."

Lily added: "That's the first big thing that I'm going to be doing... It's the best festival."

The singer, who narrowly missed out on a number one with her song from the John Lewis Christmas advert, has hit the headlines for satirising the music industry's depiction of women as sex objects in her video for her single Hard Out Here.

She has defended the video, which features scantily-clad dancers twerking, from accusations of racism.

Lily told Nick Grimshaw's Radio 1 Breakfast Show: "It was a statement of where I was and the pressures that I felt I was under. The chorus was about reclaiming that word, the B word (bitch). I definitely wanted to do something provocative. The song is a feminist statement in itself."

She added: "I'm not trying to tell people that are much older what feminism is because they probably already know. It's more about empowering younger people.

"It's a satirical video... The sentiment for me is that, if you want to take your clothes off and be sexy, that's absolutely fine but do it for yourself. Don't let somebody else dictate for you what you should be doing.

"I've taken my clothes off before for magazines and I'm not ashamed of it. But if someone had told me to take my clothes off I wouldn't have done it."

Lily, who will be touring, said she had been "scared" before making her comeback about what response she would get and she could not "stomach" listening to her former chart hit Smile.

Her video sends up Robin Thicke's Blurred Lines video and the singer said of his track: "There are certain lyrics in it that I take offence to."
