Lily Allen jokes she’s going to ‘get implants and join OnlyFans’ as she hits back at Rishi Sunak’s claims that unemployed artists should retrain

Lily Allen sarcastically claimed she was going to get breast implants and join OnlyFans on Tuesday as she hit back at Chancellor Rishi Sunak.

The singer, 35, shared the tongue-in-cheek response to the Chancellor’s recent comments that musicians and artists should retrain if they lost work due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Rishi’s comments have sparked a furious response from many stars in the entertainment industry, including Sue Perkins, Liam Gallagher and Blur’s Dave Rowntree.

Lily shared a screenshot of an article covering Rishi’s comments that first sparked the backlash, adding: ‘*gets several implants and starts OnlyFans*.’

Outrage from the arts community was sparked after ITV News tweeted their interview with the Chancellor, in which he was asked about his plans for supporting jobs through the winter.

He was was asked:  ‘If you’re a professional musician, what is your message right now? If they can’t earn enough money to live, is your message for them, you’re going to have to get another job?

Rishi then said: ‘It’s a very sad time, three quarters of a million people have already lost their jobs, we know that and that is likely to increase and many more people will. 

‘I can’t pretend that everyone can do exactly the same job they were doing at the beginning of this crisis and that’s why we’ve put a lot of our extra resource into trying to create new opportunities for people, so our kickstart scheme for example for young people who are most at risk of becoming unemployed, all the way up to the age of 24 ,are going to benefit from a fully funded job placement’.

Funny: A day earlier Lily also took to Instagram Stories to show off her new ‘short grown-up nails’ as she travelled in the back of a car

ITV tweeted a video clip of the interview out with a headline suggesting Mr Sunak was specifically talking about arts employees, but later deleted it after Rishi denied he’d been discussing the arts directly.  

Among those who were outraged by Rishi’s comments was presenter Sue Perkins, who wrote: ‘The arts contributes in the region of 10 billion a year to our economy. The people who work in it have already trained long and hard, thank you. This is shameful.’

Liam Gallagher fumed: ‘So the dopes in gov telling musicians and people in arts to retrain and get another job what and become massive c**** like you nah yer alright c’mon you know LG x

‘This country would be beyond w*** if it wasn’t for the arts and the music and football show a bit of respect you little TURD cmon you know LG x.

‘If anyone needs to retrain it’s them shower of C**** c’mon you know LG x.’ 

Blur drummer Dave Rowntree – who is also a Labour councillor – said on Twitter: ‘What a stupid thing to say. The ‘arts’ earn over £100bn for the UK each year. £13million an hour. It’s one area where we really are world beating.’

Lily has been basking in the joy of being a newlywed after she tied the knot with Stranger Things’ David Harbour in Las Vegas last month.

The couple, who were first romantically linked in 2019, surprised fans by revealing they had exchanged vows in a wedding officiated by an Elvis Presley impersonator. 

Sharing photos to his Instagram shortly after the ceremony, Harbour wrote: ‘In a wedding officiated by the king himself… 

‘The people’s princess wed her devoted, low born, but kind credit card holder in a beautiful ceremony lit by the ashen skies courtesy of a burning state miles away in the midst of a global pandemic.’ 

Lily opted for a short white double-breasted dress with a bateau neckline, black buttons, and a belted waist teamed with black suede platforms heels and a small bouquet of pink flowers.   

Lily went onto share a snap with David outside the wedding chapel, before revealing they celebrated their marriage by grabbing fast food from In-N-Out. 

They were joined by Lily’s children Ethel, eight, and Marnie, seven, from her first marriage to Sam Cooper as they tucked into their fast food outside. 

Rishi and ITV News: Did Chancellor say arts workers should retrain?

INTERVIEWER DANIEL HEWITT: You’ve said you want to save as many jobs as possible, but you can’t save every job. It appears in some sectors you’re not trying very hard. For musicians, actors, directors, freelancers in the arts, they say you’ve not helped them at all. Where is the help for those businesses, those jobs , for those people in those industries who simply can’t work?

RISHI SUNAK: In the cultural sector a few months ago we outlined £1.5billion cultural recovery programme. That money is now getting out the door, it’s being administered by the Arts Council and other bodies, I think money’s gone to independent cinemas and independent music venues just in the last week. That’s £1.5billion, it’s an enormous amount of support to preserve our important cultural institutions in all our local town centres and elsewhere and with regard to those who are self-employed, between two and a half and three million people have been able to access our self-employed support scheme, many of the people you mentioned will be able to do that and it remains one of the most comprehensive and generous support programmes for those who are self-employed anywhere in the world.

INTERVIEWER: If you’re a professional musician, what is your message right now? If they can’t earn enough money to live, is your message for them, you’re going to have to get another job?

RISHI SUNAK: I think as I’ve said, my simple message to everybody is that we are trying to do everything we can to protect as many jobs as possible.

INTERVIEWER: But they don’t think you are. In that sector, they just don’t think you are, Chancellor.

RISHI SUNAK: It’s a very sad time, three quarters of a million people have already lost their jobs, we know that and that is likely to increase and many more people will. I can’t pretend that everyone can do exactly the same job they were doing at the beginning of this crisis and that’s why we’ve put a lot of our extra resource into trying to create new opportunities for people, so our kickstart scheme for example for young people who are most at risk of becoming unemployed, all the way up to the age of 24 ,are going to benefit from a fully funded job placement

INTERVIEWER: But that’s a different job isn’t it, that’s you saying go and get a different job

RISHI SUNAK: That fresh and new opportunity for people, that’s exactly what we should be doing

INTERVIEWER: But we’re a country that has created so many fabulous musicians and artists and actors and you’re effectively saying ‘Look, I know it’s hard, but maybe go and get another job’.

RISHI SUNAK: I think you’re probably not quite right that there’s no work available for any of them at all

INTERVIEWER: For a lot of them, there isn’t

RISHI SUNAK: In all walks of life everyone is having to adapt, I’m getting emails and seeing how theatre companies are adapting and putting on different kinds of performances, it is possible to do theatrical performances online as well and for people to engage with them that way and for new business models to emerge, plenty of music lessons are still carrying on , the same thing happens, certainly in my household and elsewhere. So yes can things happen in exactly the way they did, no, but everyone is having to find ways to adapt and adjust to the new reality, and that’s what we all have to do, and that’s why we are allowing that to happen and also providing new opportunity for people if that’s the right vehicle for them.
