They're touring together...
In an interview with Billboard, Lily Allen said that she was proud of her touring partner Miley Cyrus. Allen will be the opening act for the Bangerz tour on select dates. Here are highlights:
On seeing Miley perform live: "I saw it at the O2 in London [in May], and I'm not exaggerating when I say it's one of the best shows that I've seen in years. It's up there with an Oasis show or the Stone Roses or something. It's kind of incredible to watch -- she's a real force. There's no two ways about it, she's meant to be up there doing that."
On Miley being good at her job: "She's incredible, and she has such a presence. Her personality is what shines through. I'm not close to Miley, I don't know her very well, but I feel proud of her."
On Miley's critics: "It must have been very tough for her to make that transition from the Disney star of 'Hannah Montana' into herself, essentially. People don't really like change in this day and age, and not only has she succeeded in changing her complete persona, but she's done it in an in-your-face way, which I love. I'm all for that kind of stuff."
Here are the dates that Allen will join Miley on the tour:
Aug. 1: Uniondale, N.Y. (Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum)
Aug. 2: Philadelphia, Pa. (Wells Fargo Center)
