Lily Allen covers Britney

Posted December 19th, 2008 by Eric Greenwood · 1 Comment

Apparently, DJ/producer Mark Ronson has stirred up some trouble by airing Lily Allen’s “just for fun” cover of Britney Spears’ “Womanizer” on his NYC radio show, Athentic Shit. Allen’s record company, EMI, is none too pleased about the unauthorized US airing. But the cover is readily available on an EMI sanctioned YouTube channel. Allen’s version is laced with piano, stripped of all the electronic sheen, and not bad at all. I do prefer the original, though. After recently calling Madonna the most overrated person in pop history, Allen has been firing off her mouth, as usual, but she had only kind things to say about Miss Spears: love Britney and I love the song.

    Wait, is that her cigarette purse she’s dangling?
