Boyle: Express UK/Zuma; Allen: Simon Emmet

Sharp-tongued British singer Lily Allen has been on pretty good behavior of late, at least in terms of criticizing her fellow performers. When I spoke to her earlier this year, she even declined to make negative comments about Katy Perry, despite Perry having once described her as a “fatter version of Amy Winehouse.” In fact, Allen told me she thought Perry was “just lovely,” though she seemed to be doing so through slightly gritted teeth. But this weekend Allen did critique Britain’s Got Talent sensation Susan Boyle on Twitter. In her “twittique,” Allen claimed that Boyle is “so overrated” and later added “yes, she cansing, but it’s not about talent with her is it? she seems like a lovelylady but if its about talent, that Shaheen kid should win.”

Do you think Allen is right about her countrywoman being overrated? Or should Allen keep her opinions to herself?
