Lily Allen thought Miley Cyrus' London show was "legendary" and the best show she'd seen at The O2

Lily Allen thought Miley Cyrus' London show was "legendary".

The 'Hard Out Here' singer went to see the 'Wrecking Ball' star who resumed her 'Bangerz' world tour at The O2 last night (06.05.14), after having several weeks off due to a serious allergic reaction to an antibiotic, and she defended Miley's sexual stage antics.

Speaking on 'Loose Women', she told the panel: "It was by far the best show I've seen at The O2. I love her.

"She's been doing it for so long you know, since she was like two, she's just got this presence that is so natural.

"Things going wrong all over the place and the way she was dealing with it was just brilliant and funny and entertaining.

"Yes there was a lot of swearing and inappropriate stuff going on but she's Miley Cyrus, you know that's going to happen."

Quizzed by the panel about Miley being a role model for young girls and simulating sex acts on stage, Lily said: "I don't think it really matters [what her message is], just let it be, she is what she is.

"If you don't like it don't go. She's not running for Prime Minister or president.

"It was quite extreme but if you can talk to your kids and explain to them afterwards that maybe she's being a little bit silly and showing off and that's not how to behave."

Lily, who has just released her new album 'Sheezus' after a four-year hiatus, said she often gets asked about being a role model herself in interviews and can't understand why young girls would aspire to be like her.

She said: "Why would you want mad pop stars to be role models for your children? Mums and aunts and sisters, they are role models."
