Lily Allen on my dartboard – I aim at her Nikes

I’m picking up on a pattern amongst celebrities. Like Nigel Slater (earlier post), there are some things Lily Allen just can’t deny herself.

She wouldn’t advertise Coca-Cola or Slimfast because they would “jeopardise her career” but Nike:

“I really like Nike trainers! I’m quite open about the fact that it’s like a guilty pleasure for me, with the sweatshop aspect… They’ve sent me loads and I’m designing my own trainer with them.” (from http://www.musicomh.com/interviews/lily-allen_0806.htm)

“I disagree with a lot of things that go on with major companies like that — the way they kind of exploit other people, maybe — but at the same time I love wearing Nike trainers (laughs), and they’re the only trainers that I wear…” (from http://search.japantimes.co.jp/cgi-bin/fm20070111a1.html)

Great, Lily. You’re so honest. You’re so “refreshingly frank” (Daniel Robson in the Japan Times). You’re really being true to yourself. That’s all that counts. Don’t let anything stand in the way of your self actualisation – definitely not a heart that bleeds for Nike labourers. Nobody likes a preachy girl, after all – borrrrrrrrrrrrrrrringgggggggg.

I’m sure those shoe people will understand where you’re coming from, Lily. Just like you, they probably have guilty pleasures themselves, right?
