Lily Allen worked with Mark Ronson back in 2007, as she covered Kaiser Chiefs Oh My God with the producer.

And it was a complete banger!

But the No Shame singer admitted that, since their smash single, she has found it hard to get back in the studio with her pal.

Speaking about how their relationship has changed since the good old days, 33-year-old confessed she takes his criticisms to heart a lot more now.

Its actually quite hard working with Mark… I mean, it hasnt really changed, the dynamic, because were incredibly close, she explained.

Actually, it was easier working with him in the early days because I didnt really care what he thought, whereas now, if he says something thats annoying, I really take it to heart.

But Lily explained their close friendship – which spans 15 years – means she struggles to communicate back to him about things as theres a relationship to be saved.

I cant just be annoyed and storm out and never come back, she added to Music Feeds. But hes very opinionated and so am I, so sometimes it is a little bit fraught in the studio with me and Mark.

Lily recently made headlines after releasing No Shame – her first new album in four years.

And, discussing her latest offering, the mum-of-two admitted writing tracks for the album was a harrowing experience.

During a recent appearance on Loose Women, she revealed her past antics played a huge part in the record – and she got very honest about her behaviour.

Its open to interpretation. Its quite harrowing, she told the ITV panel. Im very honest about a lot of the subject matters on the record. I think some people would shy away from talking about those subject matters.

I think its me saying: “Here I am, addressing it”, Im not particularly proud of the way Ive behaved but I think the way we work through these things is by talking about it.

Hopefully I can absolve myself of guilt and shame.

One thing she recently got off her chest is just how diva-like her requests used to be when appearing at concerts.

Most people ask for a couple of bottles of wine, or maybe even a bag of Maltesers, but not Lily…

In fact, before appearing at a Big Day Out concert in Australia, she decided to spice up her rider request because of the heatwave.

One year, the last one that I did, there was a massive heatwave in Melbourne because those forest fires had just happened, she said to Remix magazine. It was excruciatingly hot. This was at the height of my bratty pop star behaviour.

I demanded to have a miniature beach built outside my dressing room, with a paddling pool filled with ice and actual sand all around it.

Its alright for some…
