Even incredibly successful women like Lily Allen aren't immune to feeling pressure about their looks.
In an interview published in the March 2014 issue of Elle magazine, the "Hard Out Here" and "Smile" singer explained how the pressure on women to be beautiful and constant bombardment with sexualized images feeds into her insecurities:
Of course I’d rather look like Kate Moss than look like myself. I wish I didn’t feel like that, and I think the reason we feel like that is because of the imagery we’re fed all the time. Women are still expected, in some weird way, to kind of … sit there and look pretty. And not talk.
We think her outspokenness is much more valuable than supermodel looks, and we hope she can help convince other people of the same thing.
