London, Mar 28 (ANI): Lily Allen has revealed that the intense glare of paparazzi has left her feeling like a "caged animal".

While in an exclusive interview with The Independent magazine, Allen, 23, expressed her relief after obtaining a court injunction that protects her from paparazzi harassment.

"I already know that it's going to change my life ... I'm beyond happy. It's like I've been allowed to have success and a life, because sometimes it makes you feel like a caged animal," she said.

Few weeks back, the singer was snapped kicking a photographer who had apparently driven into the back of her car.

Allen said: "Seven cars had been chasing me since I left home. I turned into a T-junction and they all ran a red light, then tried to overtake on the inside. A woman had to slam the brakes on her car as they cut in. She had two children in the car, a baby in the back seat, a six-year-old in the front. I braked too, of course, and this guy ran into the back of me. I got out of the car. I was shaken up. There was a lot of force. I was really angry. I went up to him and said, you know, 'What the f*** are you doing? You can't do this'.

"Instead of talking to me like a decent human being would at a decent human level, he got his camera out and started taking pictures, and I just thought, 'I've had it with the press'... It was mental. And I got back into the car and called my lawyer." (ANI)
