09:13 18th March 2014

Lily Allen has claimed that when discussing the biggest female stars on the planet, the men who produced their work is always a talking point, but never when it is a male musician.

Speaking on Radio 2, Allen was filling in for Dermort 'O Leary on his show, where she interviewed editor of Vogue, Alexandra Shulman. She commented that ''It's interesting that some of the biggest artists, if not most of them, are women."

To which Allen added: ''You'll also notice, of those big, successful, female artists, there's always a man behind the woman-piece. Whether it's Beyonce it's Jay Z, if it's Adele it's Paul Epworth, with me it was Mark Ronson, same with Amy Winehouse. It's sort of like you never get that with men."

She went on: ''You can't think of the man behind the man because it's never a conversation which is bought up. If you're Ed Sheeran nobody talks about who produced his music.''

The comments follow on from criticism of Lily Allen's interview in Shortlist, within which she claimed that feminism is obsolete in modern society. However she since went on to say that the magazine simply misquoted her and that what she said was simply taken out of context.
