Lily Allen said the showbiz industry is full of "botoxed idiots." The pop star shared her thoughts after her retirement from the music industry four years ago.

The 28-year-old singer said that she was disillusioned with the people in her circle. She even criticized today's showbiz industry saying that it was full of not only fake but also "sterile f------ Botoxed idiots."

In an interview with Esquire magazine (U.K. edition), she revealed that she was rejected by people who she once recognized as friends when she became pregnant. "I thought the people in that showbiz circle were my friends. But almost the second I got pregnant and I wasn't able to go out and party, they were suddenly quite nasty."

She added that the reason these people survive is by making themselves feel powerful by ostracizing other people.

The British singer said that she feels "blessed to be able to recognize that but at the same time it can still feel pretty s---" when she walks into a room full of people.

The songstress told the magazine: "I feel like when I was growing up and dreaming of being a pop star, it was the days of Britpop when things felt authentic and anarchic, and people were taking drugs and having a lot of fun and having sex with each other and it wasn't fake, it was real."

"So excuse me if I found it a bit disappointing when I arrived and it was a bunch of sterile f------ Botoxed idiots that stank of desperation."

When asked about her thoughts and feelings about being able to come back with her rendition of Keane's Somewhere Only We Know, she said: "I feel very lucky. I couldn't ask for much more really. And actually I'm not really asking for much more."

"I'm not trying to take over the world here. I don't want to be Rihanna. I want to sell some records, sell some tickets to my shows and live my life."
