Remember back in June when Lily Allen attended Glamour’s Women of the Year Awards and had to be carried out by her bodyguard because she was so drunk? Then she blogged about how awful she felt and claimed that her drink must have been spiked? Well, Lily Allen and Elton John were on hand to co-host GQ Men of the Year Award and you’ll never guess what happened. I’ll give you a second…. Did you guess that Lily Allen got drunk? Ding ding ding. We have a winner.
But when Elton John and Lily Allen got up on stage to host a prestigious awards ceremony, no one predicted quite such fireworks.
The pair began quarelling in front of a shocked celebrity crowd when Miss Allen became drunken and dishevelled after gulping down champagne as the pair handed out awards.
The 23-year-old, decked out in an extravagant Dolce and Gabbana ballgown and Chopard jewellery, soon began slurring, swearing and ad-libbing.
And when she introduced Carol Vorderman to the stage with a verbal tirade, saying ‘F***’ no fewer than five times in the same sentence, her co-host decided enough was enough.
When Miss Allen came to announce ‘…and now the most important part of the night’, Elton chipped in ‘What? Are you going to have another drink?’
She fired back: ‘F*** off Elton. I am 40 years younger than you and have my whole life ahead of me!’
A clearly rattled Elton replied ‘I could still snort you under the table’. To which she replied: ‘F*** off. I don’t know what you are talking about.’
Awards shows in the UK sound so much more fun than awards shows in the US. Over here, they have a wrinkly, roided up Madonna trying to act sexy and a pudgy, confused Britney Spears wiggling around on stage which amounts to a televised freak show. In the UK they have Lily Allen becoming highly intoxicated and acting inappropriate while some old queen tells her to fuck off. Dammit, America, I can’t take you anywhere.
