Lily Allen has criticised BBC Radio 1 stating, “nobody knows what the fuck they’re doing”.

Having recently dropped the ‘Hard Out Here’ singer from their playlists, Allen has made negative comments towards the station.

The singer, who recently stepped in for Two Door Cinema Club to headline Latitude festival, said: “The truth is nobody knows what the fuck 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.”

Allen also went on to comment about sexism within the music industry stating: “The music industry is run mainly by elder males. It sits better with them to be able to assert their power and control over something that they see as weak and I think they probably see women as weak.”

Having returned to the spotlight after a lengthy hiatus the gobby singer has also spoken out about her most recent release, ‘Sheezus’ and the quality of the record.

“The first thing I came back with was ‘Hard Out Here’,” the singer said. “And that was important to me, a real statement of intent, even though you couldn’t put it on the radio over here because it had too much swearing. Maybe the songs aren’t good enough this time, who knows? I just know I can’t wait to get back into the studio.”
