Anlage 1: Text (vocabulary)
Lily Rose Beatrice Cooper, who was born 2 May 1985 in Hammersmith, London, United Kingdom, better known by her maiden name of Lily Allen, is a famous English singer. She’s also a talk show host on BBC and actress in various films. Allen is the daughter of comedian, actor and musician Keith Allen and film producer Alison Owen. In her teenage years, her musical tastes were widespread, later she started making her own music and developed her own style.
Cooper used her maiden name until 2012, when she switched to using her married name, Lily Rose Cooper. In 2013, however, she announced that she would be returning to her maiden name for the upcoming album and working in a studio with Greg Kurstin, producer of her last album. She also turned up – as Lily Rose Cooper – on Pink's True Love, a song produced by Greg Kurstin too
Later that year, however, she told her fans to be in a studio again, "throwing shit in the wall and seeing if anything sticks". In November the first fruits of this ‘shit throwing’ arrived in the shape of her sweet cover of Somewhere Only We Know.
Lily Allen really doesn’t mince her words . She raises topics straightforwardly . In Hard Out Here
which was released in 2013, she says "I suppose I should tell you what this bitch is thinking, you'll find me in the studio and not in the kitchen", and, "It's time to speed it up because I can't move at this pace." "Forget your balls and grow a pair of tits" and "It's hard out here for a bitch". This way she wants to drum up controversy, engage a debate and represent the now. This is something she has always tried to follow throughout her songs.
