Pretty in Pink

Possibly the most clich├ęd place possible to do a celebrity interview is at the Chateau Marmont hotel. I’ve done quite a few there, many of them with people who are Los Angeles residents and use the place as the equivalent of a conference room. Lily Allen, as it happened, was actually staying there. Before we spoke (a few weeks back) she sent down a laptop with a playlist of some songs she was working on for me to listen to; it was tagged “journo.” She hadn’t done an interview in over a year, and was visibly weirded out by the process, but was good company regardless: modest about her achievements but saucy in her affect. The result was a short “in the studio” article, now available online.
