Lily Allen launched her new album with a special performance at London’s G-A-Y on Saturday.
Sporting pink hair and a dazzling rainbow dress, the 33 year-old singer played tracks from No Shame. And she added in older material including Smile and Not Fair.
Allen camped it up by changing into a silver tinsel wig and black leotard for a cover of Cher’s iconic 1998 hit Believe.
Piers Morgan v Lily Allen
The star directed her 2009 track Fuck You at ongoing nemesis, TV host Piers Morgan. The pair took aim at each other earlier this month after Piers criticized her for wearing an AK-47 shaped necklace.
‘Why have you got a machine gun around your neck?,’ Morgan asked of her over Twitter.
Allen, not usually known to take criticism lying down, fired back: ‘I’ll stop wearing the necklace when you apologise for hacking the phones of dead children. Deal?
‘If @piersmorgan actually gave a fuck about inner city youth violence, he’d spend less time provoking people like me and Raheem and more time lobbying his actual mates, who could do something about cuts to policing and youth services. Necklaces and tattoos are NOT the problem here.’
Morgan in turn cancelled her planned appearance on Good Morning Britain. At the time, Allen decried that move as a ‘misogynistic abuse of power’.
Morgan responded: ‘Oh, I didn’t cancel you because you’re a woman. I cancelled you because you’re annoying.’
Allen’s latest release has won the star blanket critical acclaim. The star has released December UK tour dates in support of No Shame, taking in Dublin, Glasgow, Birmingham, Manchester and London.
