Lily Allen wants to work with Miley Cyrus.
The 28-year-old star met Miley, 21, on a trip to Los Angeles after chatting with her on Twitter and is self-confessed fan.
Lily insists the satirical video for her comeback single "Hard Out Here" wasn't an attack against the "Wrecking Ball" hitmaker, despite it showing her surrounded by twerking scantily-clad dancers. "I'd never met her before so I couldn't say we are really great friends but I do really like Miley. She's funny, witty and clever, I love what she does. I think her and Lorde's album have had the most plays in my car this year. I never went on record saying the video was a direct pop at her - it wasn't. She's probably way too busy for someone like me but yeah, I'd welcome the opportunity to work with her," Lily, 28, the Daily Mirror newspaper.

Lily Allen has defended her "Hard Out There" music video.
The 28-year-old singer has hit out at accusations of racism in her new raunchy video - which sees a group of black women jiggling their bottoms - by saying she chose her backing dancers through their talent, not based on their skin color.
"If anyone thinks for a second that I requested specific ethnicities for the video, they're wrong. If anyone thinks that after asking the girls to audition, I was going to send any of them away because of the color of their skin, they're wrong. I'm not going to apologize because I think that would imply that I'm guilty of something, but I promise you this, in no way do I feel superior to anyone, except pedophiles, rapists murderers etc., and I would not only be surprised but deeply saddened if I thought anyone came away from that video feeling taken advantage of,or compromised in any way," she wrote on her Twitter.
