It is the news that will have parents up in arms and music fans burying their heads in their hands. Lily Allen is set to join Miley Cyrus on the next leg of her Bangerz tour.

The twerking, naked-swinging, masturbation-simulating, drug-promoting Cyrus invited the “Not Fair” singer to play seven dates in August. These will be Allen’s first US gigs in five years, bar a New York show in May.

The 29-year-old has been a dedicated supporter of “fearless b**ch” Cyrus despite the headlines she relentlessly generates with her controversial antics.

“I don’t think someone sat in a room with Miley Cyrus and said, ‘Right, you’re going to be sexy, stick your tongue out and wear bikinis’,” Allen said in February.

“She wants to do that, she’s got a banging body. She’s worked out in the gym all the time, she wants to show it off, that’s great.”

Allen’s recent single “Hard Out Here” saw her attack the treatment of women in the music industry and mock Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines”.


“If I want to be sexy and take my clothes off, I’ll do it of my own accord,” she said.

“It’s when somebody tells you to do it that I find it offensive. I just don’t want someone saying to me, ‘You’ve got to lose 50 pounds or take your clothes off to sell records’, because it’s not true.”

Allen’s set at Glastonbury Festival last weekend saw her dance around giant milk bottles in a revealing pink jumpsuit. “Is my camel toe, like, really prevalent?” she asked the crowd at one point, before dedicating “F*** You” to “annoyingly corrupt” Fifa President Sepp Blatter.

Following her time with Cyrus, Allen’s own tour in support of her third album Sheezus will commence in Miami in September.

Her next single, “URL Badman” is due out later this month and sees Allen tackle cyber bullying.
