Lily Allen: 'I'm terrified that Kanye might call me over my album title'
'Air Balloon' songstress Lily Allen has confessed that naming her new album 'Sheezus' was meant as a mark of respect to Kanye West, whose last record was called 'Yeezus', but she's worried he might have something to say about it.
During a new interview with Australian station Nova this week, she explained that because of the obvious parallel between the two titles she is a little concerned that he might call her to discuss it:
I'm terrified, I thought he'd think it was a diss, but it's totally not a diss. I love Kanye, I think he's brilliant. He speaks his mind, whether what he's saying is ridiculous or not. He honestly does believe it and I think there's a lot to be said for that."
"In this day and age people are so bland and beige and, 'I love everyone and everything and I totally don't have a problem with everything'. But he does have a problem!"
'Sheezus' doesn't have a confirmed release date as of yet, but her new single, 'Air Balloon', is due to be released on March 2. Earlier this week, she took home the Best Solo Artist prize at the NME Awards, beating the likes of Sir Paul McCartney, David Bowie, and Jake Bugg.
