We all know by now that Lily Allen is one of my absolute faves. Her songs are cheeky, yet she sings them with so much sincerity that it is great. She also has those really sweet songs. She's just so relateable. Plus, I love how her accent comes through when she sings. You cannot pick up the accent with British singers.
Recently, the day finally came when I got to see Lily Allen live. Finally, after some previous failed attempts. She was as fun and just as great as I had imagined. She played a great mix of new songs and some of my fave songs from the first album. I even got FRONT ROW! Holy stoked! I was close enough to touch her, but I'm not creepy so obvs I didn't. I wish I had gotten some more video, but check one of the ones that I took.
Here's a mix of Lily Allen's "Who'd Have Known" (one of my new faves, it's presh.) and "LDN" (one of my old faves).
Oh! And I wish she had played "Nan, You're a Window Shopper", but that is just strictly wishful thinking since I figured she wouldn't.

Ok I saw this via @gerihirsch on Twitter, and I'm so glad she posted it. (Check her blog Because I'm Addicted too.) The video is beyond. I haven't really seen a new video I like in a very long time. Scratch that, I saw Katy Perry's video for "Waking Up In Vegas" today, and that was fun too. Watch this one though. It's unique.
