TALK OF THE TOWN: Lily Allen moans about not being paid enough for her 2006 hit Smile – despite singer believed to have pocketed about £400,000 for the streams

Pop star Lily Allen loves complaining, but she’s surpassed herself with a moan about not being paid enough.

She posted a picture on Instagram from the video for her 2006 hit Smile, with the caption: ‘Me waiting for Spotify to be invented so in 14 years I can celebrate one hundred million streams of “Smile” and buy myself a cheese sandwich with the royalties.’ 

In fact, the singer is believed to have pocketed about £400,000 for the streams.

When an online critic challenged Lily, she came up with the bizarre answer that a cheese sandwich is ‘rhyming slang’ for the £90,000 alligator Birkin bag she plans to buy for herself. 

Poor Lily. She has it tough…

A friend said, ‘They’ve been looking at mansions in North London. They plan on settling down and starting a family here as Rami doesn’t get much privacy when he goes out in LA these days.’

Can I hear Rami yelling: ‘I want to break free!’?
