Lily Allen has claimed she's only made £8k from her cover of 'Somewhere Only We Know'.
Having a chat in the latest issue of BEAT, the 'Littlest Things' hitmaker was asked how much someone could expect to make in the music industry in 2014, to which she replied:
"Nothing. Everyone assumes I made millions from the John Lewis ad – I probably made £8k."
"Now I'm not earning much from the music," the penniless songstrel adds, "I won't do as much promo for the record company. It's changed in that sense. I have to look at other ways."
"Back then [before her 'retirement'] it was about doing as much press as possible, but now one quote will spread everywhere. [AS YOU CAN SEE FROM THIS 'NEWS' STORY — META ED] So you don't want to do as much, because you saturate the media very quickly. Jonathan Ross, X Factor, so many opinions, it's too much. You want to hold it back."
So there we go. Lesson 1: if you're doing a song for a TV ad, try and make sure you wrote it.
