Lily Allen is saying that she longs for the days of failure and rejection, before she shot to stardom with her hit single, “Smile.” She says that she misses the interaction she used to have with managers and record companies, comparing the situation to “having a relationship with an abusive boyfriend.” And when she suddenly achieved success, it threw her into a confusing tailspin. Man, she seriously looks bummed out here in most of these pictures, except for the ones where she’s interacting with someone’s cute little baby. Maybe she’d feel better if one of the paparazzi got drunk, slept with her best friend and then had the gall to ask for money for cigarettes–at least it would be something familiar.
