LILY Allen has told how she feels betrayed by women who criticise her.
The pop star, who lives in Cranham, has also revealed that her relationship with husband Sam Cooper has strengthened since she returned to work.
In an interview in the June issue of Glamour magazine, Lily, 28, said: “I do feel betrayed by my sex… People have got their own agendas these days. It’s obvious when it’s about ego and them wanting to sound clever.
“It’s sad. Exhausting. Your own sex, in the name of feminism, hitting you back down. But I’m not gonna censor myself. I’m not gonna be beige.”
Lily also told how returning to work has made her builder husband Sam more “loving” and “caring”.
“I was really worried about working and the pressure it was going to put us under, and it’s actually made him more protective and more loving and more caring,” she said.
“He’s there for me. It was a tough decision to make, a scary adjustment, and for the children. But my relationship with my husband is as strong as it’s ever been. It’s lovely to come home to.”
Lily added: “I wasn’t good at staying at home all day, it didn’t suit me. I’m creative, it’s just who I am… I missed the positive feedback about my music from my fans.
"I missed the rush of performing. I missed the free clothes and handbags and the good tables in posh restaurants. I did.”
