Lily Allen’s transformation over the years: Singer hits back at ‘concerns’ she’s now ‘too thin’

"You know nothing about me or my lifestyle"

Lily Allen has responded to comments made about her body on Instagram, after some followers expressed concern she looked ‘too thin’.

This came after the singer shared a video of herself appearing on the The Lateish Show with Mo Gilligan last week.

Lily hit back: “You’ve never seen me two years completely sober, not smoking and exercising every day.”

Before comments on the social media thread were switched off, the mum of two said to another concerned fan/critic: “Seriously, where do you get off? You know NOTHING about me or my lifestyle. How dare you.”

Lily, 36, opened up about her weight loss earlier this year.

It is only natural that she has undergone physical changes since coming into the public spotlight in 2006.

As time passes, people’s bodies alter. And 15 years, during which she has raised two daughters, is a long time for a body to change.

Nonetheless, Lily has been open about how her experiences with substance abuse and her weight has also affected her appearance.

And the pop singer has also embraced a wide variety of looks over the years – including drastically different hairstyles and wigs!

What did Lily Allen say about her weight loss earlier in 2021?

In January of this year, Lily candidly addressed how she became addicted to prescription drug Adderall.

She said during an appearance on The Recovery podcast she’d taken it ahead of touring with Miley Cyrus in 2014.

The medication is frequently used to treat ADHD.

Lily reflected: “I was like 14 stone and just did not feel like a pop star at all.

“So I started taking this drug called Adderall, which is like speed, to lose the weight.

“And I got addicted to this drug because it made me invincible and I could work really long hours and be all the people I was required to be.”

What has Lily Allen previously said about her weight?

She previously addressed her use of the drug in her 2018 memoir My Thoughts Exactly.

Lily wrote: “I flirted with Adderall (which is really just a type of speed) as a way of getting or staying thin.”

I was like 14 stone and just did not feel like a pop star at all.

However, back in 2014, Lily indicated her dramatic weight loss – reported to be nearly three stone – came as a result of eating crisps.

It is believed she slimmed down to around eight stone and a size 8 in clothes.

She went on to claim that being on stage had played a part in her weight loss, too.

Lily added: “I think it’s touring and dancing and probably, you know, the not wanting to eat room service thing.

“I don’t really like food being mass produced, you look at those kitchens and they’re huge, just I don’t like it.”

In a previous interview with OK! magazine, Lily indicated she had sought comfort in food during her second pregnancy and put on three stone.

Lily Allen on ‘going clean’

Earlier this year Lily, who is set to make her West End stage debut, also opened up about celebrating her 18 months of sobriety.

Telling fans on Instagram she ‘recommended’ the choices she has made to live cleanly, she has also admitted to feeling “guilty” for “neglecting my kids” as she maintained an indulgent lifestyle.

Lily also said she considered taking heroin at the lowest point of her struggles.

“I knew when that thought popped into my head it was time to confront my demons,” she said.
