Hard Out Here singer Lily Allen has said she would like to be "anything like" rapper Kanye West.

The 28-year-old star named her latest album Sheezus, a play on the rapper's Yeezus record.

Speaking on New York station Z100, Allen said: ''I'm totally for Kanye. He's a G, he's cool, he's Yeezus. I'd like to be anything like him. (sic)''

Allen previously told Australia's NovaFM of her fears that she might receive a call from West after paying tribute to him with her album title, saying: ''I'm terrified ... I thought he'd think it was a diss, but it's totally not a diss. I love Kanye. I think he's brilliant."

She added: ''He speaks his mind. Whether what he's saying is ridiculous or not he honestly does believe it, and I think there's a lot to be said for that in this day and age.''
