Following an earlier report in the pages of The Spoof last week, Lily Allen Gets Boot From US , it has now been confirmed that pop star and loudmouth Lily Allen has had to cancel her upcoming US tour.
The 'singer' from London had her work visa revoked because, according to US Immigration officials, she was"nowhere near good enough", and had to leave the country immediately.
Now her manager has confirmed that the mindbending process of obtaining the correct documentation has proved "too cumbersome", and the chanteuse has decided to spare the American public her constant whinging and whining, as well as their ears.
Allen, who has a huge worldwide fanbase in the 'under-10' category, told visitors to her website:
"I'm really disappointed, and I'll think of something derogatory to say about Americans when I get out of bed this afternoon."
She was due to appear at the MTV Awards in September, but will now stay in the UK and have a rant about some of her more talented contemporaries instead.
Said her manager:
"Leave her alone for a bit. She's a tad touchy right now."
