Singer Lily has admitted she doesn’t think that stars are told to act in a certain way buy record companies, but that they do it simply because they want to.

She said: “I actually think Rihanna and Miley in particular are (being sexy) because they want to do it. I don’t think someone sat in a room with Miley Cyrus and said, ‘Right you’re going to be sexy, stick your tongue out and wear bikinis.”

Lily went on to say that Miley has the right to flaunt the body she has worked for if she wants to. “She wants to do that, she’s got a banging body. She’s worked out in the gym all the time, she wants to show it off, that’s great.”

Mum-of-two Lily also said that she shows off her body only when she feels comfortable doing so, and that if a record label boss asked her to she would find it offensive.


She said: “As a woman that works in this industry, if I want to be sexy and take my clothes off, I’ll do it of my own accord. It’s when somebody tells you to do it that I find it offensive.

“If you were a record company person you’d never ask a boy to take his top off. I just don’t want someone saying to me, ‘You’ve got to lose 50 pounds or take your clothes off to sell records’, because it’s not true.”
