Lily Allen has reportedly branded Radiohead’s decision to allow fans to choose how much they pay for their new album as “arrogant.”

Allen says that the band’s decision to market, ‘In Rainbows,’ in that manner will make it more difficult for band’s to break into the industry.

"It's arrogant for them to give their music away for free - they've got millions of pounds. It sends a weird message to younger bands who haven't done as well,” she said.

“You don't choose how to pay for eggs. Why should it be different for music?"

As we reported earlier, Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher has also criticised Radiohead’s marketing technique, saying that it would be over his "dead body" before he went into a studio and worked hard to release an album for nothing.
