I've always kind of liked Lily Allen. Sure, she's a Myspace-made Not Ugly Person™ who had help from well-off parents with connections, but she also had a no-fucks-given 'tude and seemed like a real human, inebriated missteps and all. And her ska-tinged/reggae-lite synth-pop tunes—delivered with a potty-mouth cockney accent and a sense of humor—weren't all that bad, either. You probably remember her sunny 2006 hit "Smile," about basking in the pain of a cheating ex, or maybe "Alfie," a bouncy track chiding her younger brother for smoking too much pot and never leaving his room (it must have worked—Alfie Allen now plays Theon Greyjoy on Game of Thrones). Allen's newest album, Sheezus, is acceptable radio pop filled with half-interesting commentary on fame and internet trolling. EMILY NOKES
