Glastonbury 2014: Lily Allen confirms festival appearance
The singer revealed that she will be playing the festival on Radio 1 this morning
Pop star Lily Allen has confirmed her appearance at next year's Glastonbury festival.
The "Not Fair" singer revealed the news on-air this morning as a guest on Nick Grimshaw's Radio 1 Breakfast Show.
"It got confirmed yesterday," she said. "That's the first big thing I'm going to be doing. I'll be doing 16 weeks of festivals over the summer and then tour."
It remains unclear where on the bill Allen will feature, but with a third album presumed for release in the near future she will be a popular first addition to the line-up.
The singer defended the video in a statement last week, explaining her intention to address the "objectification of women within modern pop culture" and confirming that the dancers were chosen based on their skills alone.
"If I could dance like the ladies can, it would have been my a**e on your screens; I actually rehearsed for two weeks trying to perfect my twerk, but failed miserably," she wrote on Twitter.
