Lily Allen slams music industry: 'It's so messed up and I have no control over my own music'

Pop songstress Lily Allen has revealed that she has barely any control over her music career because as soon as she delivered her new album to the label she's signed to, they took over and decided which tracks to release as singles. 

During an interview on Australian breakfast show 'Weekend Sunrise', the 'Sheezus' star explained that the industry is a mess at the moment and slammed the people who are making decisions where her own career is concerned:

"The actual industry side is messed up. I've got no control over a lot of it. They kind of made decisions for the wrong reasons. You deliver a body of work and then they basically put it into a market research machine and decide which singles will be released."

Allen, meanwhile, also recently hit out at BBC Radio 1 after she was dropped from the station's playlist and admitted she thinks that the people who work there have no idea what they're doing: "The truth is nobody knows what the f**k they're doing. They can pretend they’ve got a formula that works and [that] they 'know' they’re exactly in control of the game but they’re just not. No one knows."
