The other day there was this big shindig in Dubai and celebrities flocked there like they were getting paid. Oh, wait a second they were. Anyway, as could be expected at an event where money is no object, the booze was flowing and it was free. Unlike Lindsay Lohan who was there, Lily Allen stayed away from the booze.
In an interview with GMTV in the UK she said that she has basically given up drinking at any public event. This was because of that little incident she had back at the GQ awards with Elton John. I think that is where it sunk in for her, but she has been hammered at lots of other public events prior to that one.
Apparently having that tape shown repeatedly all over the world made her realize that if she kept drinking in public, she knew she couldn't control how much she drank and there would be more incidents like that one.
So, Lily Allen is growing up and learning lessons. Who would have thunk it. Good job Lily.
