Lily Allen calls Susan Boyle 'overrated'

Tbd-lilyallen052709 Let's head across the pond and check up on our Brit friends, shall we? It seems Lily Allen hasn't gotten enough attention lately, so she's spouting on Twitter (@lillyroseallen) that Britain's Got Talent's Susan Boyle really isn't all that and a bag of fish and chips. How's that?

"i thought her timing was off, no control, and i don't think she has an amazing voice," Allen tweeted in response to Boyle's advancement to the show's final round.

"yes, she can sing, but it's not about talent with her is it? she seems like a lovely lady but if its about talent, that Shaheen kid should win," she added, noting contestant Shaheen Jafargholi.

It suddenly occurred to us that hey, the 48-year-old Boyle is a feel-good story in tough times, and Lily Allen is a snot-nosed smartass who sings songs called F--- You, so it's really a toss-up for us. But it's nice to see the Brits get obsessed with dumb stuff as much as we do.
