Lily Allen Hates, Flaunts Smoking Bans

Lily Allen gave her fourth-ever booze-free show last night, treating me, Minerva, and the rest of the sold-out 9:30 Club crowd to a great set that included all of Alright, Still, a couple of new tracks, and two covers. (The first was a too-long Keane song; in the second, she actually managed a near-impossible achievement: making a Deborah Harry song, Heart of Glass, palatable.)

Allen recently gave up onstage boozing after delivering a rambling anti-Bush and anti-Blair tirade. She's now channeling her enegeries to flaunting stupid smoking bans (check her left hand in the photo above, from last night's show). If you think that's accidental -- I counted her smoking at least three fags -- check out her anti-ban comments from Saturday night's show in Toronto.
