In case you were wondering where her "difficult" second album was: "Now, the album. It has been finished for a while now. I don't really know what's going on with it. The record industry is a very political place at the moment and I am on EMI Records. Lots of people have been fired or have taken redundancy recently as the company was taken over by a private equity firm called Terra Firma. Many of these people were people assigned to my projects... I might go on another holiday as I don't have anything else to do." Instead of heading off into the great blue yonder and dutifully out of our sights, Lily went on the lash with Miquita Oliver (and some gentleman who's ashamed to be seen out in public) and got herself into a scuffle with some French girl en route from Ronnie Scott's in Soho to, presumably, another boozer.

According to today's Sun: "The French girl provoked Lily by calling her a 'f***ing a******e'. She also egged her on with further insults, with a vexed Lily shouting back: 'Yeah, come and say that to my face you f***ing ****.'  Keith's daughter - whose boob popped out of her top earlier in the boozy evening - then decided to exact her revenge on the mouthy pedestrian by punching her. " And what fun that appears to be. Or perhaps all the grinning is for the photographers who were egging them on. Looking at the level of unnerving goading in the Sun's footage, it reminds me of being in 2nd year, when we used to cajole members of the lower class to shove each other into lockers for amusement during lunchbreak. It's not something to be proud of, but we were thirteen. What's the excuse here?
