Allen demands $1.5 mn donation from Morgan
London: Singer Lily Allen, who is on British broadcaster Piers Morgan`s dream guest list, has asked him to donate $1.5 million to a charity for bereaved parents if he ever wants her to make an appearance on his talk show.
The "Smile" hitmaker is one of Morgan`s dream guests for his British series "Piers Morgan`s Life Stories", which has garnered huge ratings.
Allen has made it clear she has "no interest" in an in-depth chat unless Morgan persuades bosses at the ITV network to donate the huge sum to SANDS, a charity which helps parents who have lost their children.
"I don`t need to enhance my career Piers, the only way I would justify coming on your show would be to give money to a charity. A charity that helps women to overcome the kind of grief that I have had to experience. I`d do it for a million for SANDS. Money, mouth," she posted on her Twitter account.
"Those are my terms. I`ve got no interest in coming on your show, you`ve been asking me for years," contactmusic.com quoted her.
However, Morgan agreed he would organise an undisclosed five-figure sum for the interview, replying: "I will get ITV to make substantial five-figure donation to your charity for the interview. Think about it."
