As a human being with ears and a heart and feelings, I was deeply charmed by Lily Allen’s “Smile,” but the rest of her debut and her whole teetering party-girl thing left me feeling much the way Ms. Allen apparently does after many of her bedroom encounters.

I like her new It’s Not Me, It’s You much better, possibly because everything she does to promote it seems designed to make me fall in love with her. The latest salvo: a video for “Not Fair” shot to make it look like she’s a guest on The Porter Wagoner Show that almost completely manages to avoid lame country-retard stereotypes.

I give.
