Lily Allen Backs Bishop After He Tells Churchgoers To Listen To Her Music
January 25, 2011
Lily Allen has backed the Bishop Of Sheffield after he told churchgoers to listen to the singer's music as part of a course about the Bible.
Right Reverend Dr Steven Croft included a clean edit of Allen's hit 'The Fear' on a list of approved songs for participants in the Easter-themed course.
Other tracks included Neil Diamond's 'Pretty Amazing Grace' and a clip from Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.
He told BBC News Allen's song used clever puns and “captures a certain spirit of contemporary culture”.
Responding to the Dr Croft's proposal, Allen posted a link to the story on Twitter and wrote: “Quite Right!!!!!!”
Reports about the course come a year after prime minister David Cameron said he had stopped his children from listening to Allen's music because it was “unsuitable”.
