So, this is me. Lily Allen.

I am a mother, and I was a wife. I'm also a singer and a songwriter. I have loved and been let down. I've been stalked and assaulted. I am a success and a failure. I've been broken and full of hope. I am all these things and more.

I'm telling my truth because when women share their stories, loudly and clearly and honestly, things begin to change - for the better.

So, this is my story. These are my thoughts exactly.


Lily Allen is a singer, songwriter, and presenter. Her first single, "Smile," reached no. 1 and her debut album sold millions of copies. So far, she has released three albums, with a fourth hotly-anticipated album on its way. Lily has won 30 major awards for her singing and songwriting skills, including three prestigious Ivor Novello awards and a BRIT award.




REVIEW:
I knew Lily Allen was a celebrity, but honestly, that's where it ended for me. I wasn't sure if it was acting, singing or something else all together. Still, I found this book as a way to learn more.
I felt like I connected with her on so many levels, and disliked her all at the same time. I've never been famous, wrote music or even played in a band, but I was a drug addict and lived a very toxic life for a short time. Those moments in the book, I knew how she felt. I knew why she was doing it. I totally got it!
She is such a narcissist though. She openly admits it too. That is frustrating. It sucks as a reader, trying to get to know her too.
I feel for her. I feel like she should want more for herself since she so candidly tells the reader how she has the means to do what most people can't. But I digress....
Not a book I'd recommend, fan or not. Her fans may not like some of the things she says in this book and the ignorant reader, like me, definitely will not.
I shared her video for the one song that I actually know, Smile. Enjoy, it's a great tune!

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
