Shears disliked Lily Allen initially

Scissor Sisters frontman Jake Shears has revealed that he had doubts as to whether Lily Allen was going to make it when she first started out.

Although she's a successful recording artist these days, Shears admitted that he didn't like the 'Not Fair' singer before she shot to fame.

"I did not like her at all when I first met her," he said. "It was in New York two years before the first album came out, she would come to New York to see a friend of ours and we would go out for dinner," he said.

He continued, "She was very sullen and sulky. She told me she was recording an album and I was rolling my eyes going, 'Yeah go for it girl. You go be a popstar, good luck with that.' And then of course, I was so wrong. But I've grown to love her."
