Lily Allen: Celebs Stay Skinny By Taking Drugs

Singer Lily Allen has spoken out at skinny celebrities who claims take drugs to not eat and stay slim.

In an interview with British Elle magazine, Allen said: “I hang out with models, the biggest pop stars and, you know, really and honestly, I hate saying this, but none of them are achieving those body shapes by being healthy.”

“They’re not just going to the gym two hours a day. They’re not eating or they’re taking speed not to eat.”

The newly-married singer also revealed she used to drink too much to avoid eating, until her husband Sam Cooper, unimpressed with her behaviour, helped her kick the habit.

“I wasn’t eating and then, you know, I was going out at night. I guess when you’re not eating you have to distract yourself with other things. Come three o’clock it was like, ‘Oh, I suppose it’s acceptable to have a glass of wine.’ And then by four o’clock I would have had four glasses. It’s not the way to be.”

The 26-year-old explains the effect Cooper had on her drinking. “But then I met Sam and he noticed that behaviour. I think it came to a point for him where he was thinking, ‘Can I be with this girl if this is what her life is like? I want to make this work, but I can’t live in this world.’

“I just needed someone to tell me. I suppose I was doing all that because I wanted acceptance and if he was telling me that he’d already accepted me for who I was and I didn’t need to do all this bullshit, then it made me feel safe and secure.”

The cute couple married last month in a traditional church ceremony in Gloucestershire, England, choosing the venue after the community and local vicar leant their support to her following her tragic miscarriage while six months pregnant.

“We hadn’t been there long, but after the news got out we received flowers and really heartfelt, beautifully written cards.

“Our vicar said a similar thing had happened to his family, so he would come over and sit with me. It feels really nice. We feel protected.”

What do you think? Do you think most celebrities take drugs to stay skinny?
