Lily Allen gives away free Glastonbury tickets

London: Pop star Lily Allen has revealed she gave away her free Glastonbury ticket allocation to random villagers, rather than giving it to ungrateful friends.

The 29-year-old `Hard Out Here` singer is set to perform at the iconic music festival next week and she didn`t want to give her free passes to people who never really appreciate it, suggest reports.

"I get a certain allocation, and because I am on the Pyramid main stage you get more. My husband has been in charge of ticket allocation. I have quite a lot of blaggy friends who hit me up for stuff all the time and never really appreciate it. I have all the calls, `Can we have some tickets?" Allen said.

"He has given them all to our villagers. There`s, like, 25 kids from Canham who have never been to Glastonbury and who are going to have such a shock, and all my showbiz mates are like, `Er?`" she added.
