Lily Allen a fan of Miley Cyrus' image

1 of 1 Allen:
Allen: "Miley's worked out in the gym all the time, she wants to show it off, that's great"

Somewhere Only We Know singer Lily Allen has said she has no problems with stars like Miley Cyrus dressing provocatively.

The 28-year-old star believes 21-year-old Cyrus is right to show off her ''banging'' body because she has worked so hard on her physique.

Speaking to France's NRJ Radio, Allen 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'.

''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.''

However, Allen did state that she finds it "offensive" when record companies put pressure on women to dress in a certain manner, saying: "[My song] Hard Out Here was a comment on the state of the music industry where women are concerned. 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.''
