Jamelia asked her record label Parlophone to produce a child-friendly version of Lily Allen’s debut album ‘Alright Still’, which contains swearing and references to drugs and sex, so her 5-year-old daughter Teja could listen. Allen, also a Parlophone artist, wasn’t happy about the situation and spoke with MTV UK about the request. “Maybe she should pay for that to get done herself. It’s not coming out of my expenses,” Allen remarked. “I think the more you shelter your children from that kind of stuff the more they’re curious about it. It’s the same with drugs, alcohol, cigarettes, the more you say, ‘no’, the more they think, ‘Maybe I should try some’. I think, just be honest with them from the start.”
