London, Jun 16 : English singer songwriter Lily Allen has hit back at critics for their vicious accusations that she is "washed up" and bitter.
The whole incident started when celebrity blogger Perez Hilton targeted Allen on his US Internet column, stating that her career has come to end.
He further said that she is a terrible role model, because she was caught smoking while pregnant.
Allen, 22, who had suffered a miscarriage last year, was forced to defend herself against the accusations.
"It's not true, ask anyone who knows me, I didn't touch a cigarette or a drink for the few months that I was pregnant," Daily Express quoted her as saying.
"I don't know why this has annoyed me so much. If I'm honest, it's probably because part of it is true these days: I am more known for being a train wreck than a musician and it does hurt," she added on her MySpace page.
"But I've been working really hard on my new record; I don't think it sucks... it's not fair to say that I'm washed up," she ended.
