Lily Allen is “terrified” that Kanye West will get in touch about her album title.

The hip-hop star’s last record was called Yeezus, while Lily has named her upcoming release Sheezus.

She has insisted she isn’t poking fun at the famously fiery rapper, but that doesn’t mean she particularly wants to chat to him about her decision.

“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 told Australian radio station Nova, when asked if she was worried he might call her to discuss the matter.

Lily and Kanye have something else in common – they are both famed for speaking their mind. That is one of the things the British star likes most about the US musician.

“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,” she explained.

“In this day and age people are so bland and beige and, 'Uh-huh, yeah, I love everyone and everything and I like, totally don’t have a problem with everything,’ but he does have a problem!”

Kanye gave a string of interviews to promote Yeezus and its accompanying tour last year, with many of his remarks garnering column inches. He claimed he would put his occupation as ‘creative genius’ on his passport if he wasn’t so worried about spelling genius wrong, claimed to have invented leather jogging pants and is the biggest rock star on the planet.

Lily has previously insisted her album title is “an homage” to Kanye and not a “p**s take”.
