Lily Allen Vs. Sir Elton John: Move over Cheech & Chong! Though the legendary “bud” brothers of comedy have reunited, there might be a new super comedy group on the rise and an unlikely one at that. Pop singer Lily Allen and legend Sir Elton John made quite the pair as they exchanged barbs while hosting the GQ Men of the Year Awards in London on Tuesday night. Lily reportedly drank champagne through the ceremony, but when she said “now we reach a very special point in the evening,” while she was presenting, Elton made reference to her alcohol intake, chiming in with “What, are you going to have another drink?” As the banter continued in front of stars and honorees, including producer Mark Ronson and celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay, Lily reportedly replied “F*** off Elton, I’m 40 years younger than you, I have my whole life ahead of me,” the Times quoted her as saying. But the exchange didn’t stop there. “I could still snort you under the table” Elton reportedly stated. “F*** off. I don’t know what you are talking about,” Lily replied. Come to think of it, maybe Cheech & Chong’s status is safe.
