Lily Allen's transport tears

'Fear' singer Lily Allen has revealed she is still "haunted" by the last time she used public transport because people shouted at her

Lily Allen cried the last time she took public transport.

The 'Fear' singer - who performed an intimate concert this week where she demanded fans wore underground station-themed fancy dress - is still "haunted" by the experience, which saw her recognised by fans.

She said: "Last time I went on the underground was New Year's Eve a year or two ago. I'm a bit haunted by it now because I was trying to get into the centre of town to see my boyfriend and I was on my own.

"People started shouting and singing 'Smile' at me and I was in tears, 'Just leave me alone'. And people were like, 'What the f**k are you doing on the Tube?'

"I thought, 'You know what, I'm not going to get on the Tube for a while.' "

The outspoken 24-year-old star - who has engaged in a war-of-words with several stars, including Girls Aloud singer Cheryl Cole - also said she has no desire to write a book about her experiences.

She added to Britain's The Times newspaper: "I wouldn't. I think the nature of these books is, you know, you're f**king people over, and I haven't really got any interest in making money out of other people's misfortune."
