So, this is me. Lily Allen.
I am a woman.
I am a mother.
I was a wife.
I drink.
I have taken drugs.
I have loved and been let down.
I am a success and a failure.
I am a songwriter.
I am a singer.
I am all these things and more.

When women share their stories, loudly and clearly and honestly, things begin to change - for the better.
This is my story.

    As far as celebrity memoirs go you really get your moneys worth here. I believe if your going to write a tell all memoir you might as well tell the truth and nothing but the truth and this is what Lil...

    I read Lily Allen’s book My Thoughts Exactly after work today. A quick read but not an easy one. It’s about fame, excess, breakups and breakdowns. Love and mothering. Making mistakes and owning mi...

    What a read this book was. I’ve read many autobiographies over the years and this is by far one of the most honest and brutal that I’ve read. I wouldn’t say I was a Lily Allen ‘fan’, though ...

    Read it for book club. Writing style is very simple. This happened, then this happened. She repeats herself a lot. Also can't seem to take responsibility for her own actions. Don't really get why it's...

  • Kristy

    Unlike a lot of celebrities (or the rest of us, really), Lily Allen is completely honest and open about her failures and shortcomings. In her memoir, she sets straight a lot of the misconceptions abou...
