Lily Allen has more to state.

As the conversation of nepotism in Hollywood continues to grow, the “Smile” vocalist– who is the child of star Keith Allen and movie manufacturer Alison Owen— just recently voiced her viewpoints on “nepo babies,” writing in a Dec. 19 tweet that “y’all should be worrying about are the ones working for legal firms, the ones working for banks, and the ones working in politics, If we’re talking about real world consequences and robbing people of opportunity.”

The remark was consulted with some reaction on social networks, with one Twitter user commenting, “So go have those discussions then? No one is stopping you. But when a DIRECT BENEFICIARY of a problematic system points in the opposite direction and goes ‘Hey look over there!’ I’m not willing to let them distract me.”

Now, Lily is safeguarding herself and clarifying her ideas. “Look, I seem to have riled people up with my comments about nepo babies,” she composed in aDec. 20 tweet “I am nearly 40 years of age and am more than happy, in fact I think it’s important to disclose what a privileged upbringing I’ve had and how that has created so many opportunities for me.”
