Lily Allen is outspoken. She is fierce, shockingly honest, funny and opinionated. But she hasn't always been this way.
In a series of essays exploring her life, thoughts and opinions, this is the first time Lily has laid bare everything. My Thoughts Exactly is an epic exploration of a messed-up mind and a complex life. Beginning with her childhood isolation, to finding huge success in her career but ending up as alone as she once was, Lily questions everything she knew about herself, probing her life for answers to the question she has forever been trying to answer: Who Am I?
It's about a life of chaos, depending on drink, drugs and sex to get through the days. It's about the struggles of depending on love to forge an identity, and her dependence on music to help her find herself. But it's also about feminism, the tabloids, money, faking orgasms, bad managers, fame, sexual abuse, mental health, narcissism, co-dependency, festivals, motherhood, stalking and parking tickets... It's been a pretty packed life.
My Thoughts Exactly might be a bit sad, shocking and brutal. But it is also funny, heartbreaking and, most important of all, true.
