Pop star Lilly Allen was shocked by the results of market research for her new song. She even received a storm of abusive comments.

After a four-year break she took to focus on parenting, the star is getting ready to release a new album Sheezus.

The staff at her record company then decided to test the public’s reaction to the new material, so they sent some of her songs to focus groups.

The comments were anything but pretty, even abusive and offensive. The star was shocked to see the email containing their reactions.

She told Popjustice.com, “I accidentally got copied in on a whole bunch of it and reading it was one of the most horrible moments of my life.

They don’t actually tell the people what it is that they’re listening to. So a lot of it was just people going ‘is this Lily Allen? It f**king is Lily Allen’, ‘If this is her I thought she’d f**king retired the stupid c***!’ This is about six months ago, too, so it really set things off well. The thing is, people who take part in market research: are they really representative of the marketplace? Probably not.”

However, the singer is vowed not to take the critics to heart.

She said, “I find it totally unhelpful. My mum’s a film producer and they do these market research screenings, and more often than not it’s just like school – people don’t have opinions but because they’re asked for them they come up with something and then it becomes a statistic…

I’m yet to see an example of market research where it’s actually good.”
