'I love it' Jon Ronson


So, this is me. Lily Allen.

I am a mother, and I was a wife. I'm also a singer and a songwriter. I have loved and been let down. I've been stalked and assaulted. I am a success and a failure. I've been broken and full of hope. I am all these things and more.

I'm telling my truth because when women share their stories, loudly and clearly and honestly, things begin to change - for the better.

So, this is my story. These are my thoughts exactly.

Review quote

My Thoughts Exactly would be important and fascinating reading for every popular music fan if only because of its relevance to the #MeToo movement, although it's much more than that. . . . The book unfolds with the same brand of fearlessness and self-awareness that's helped to made Allen a fascinating songwriter. . . . The resulting book feels like the best kind of long-form interview. It's revealing, it's honest, and it acknowledges the complexities of fame and music and love. . . . When you're interviewing an artist, you often hope for that question that really makes your subject think, that they don't have a pat answer for. My Feelings Exactly is like the response to one big question that really made Lily Allen think. Now we have the answer, and it's the question that might be hard to come by. Whatever it is, it's one we should all ask ourselves." --The Current
