Allen Hates Texting
Pregnant pop star Lily Allen refuses to message friends in so-called "text speak" - because she can't stand the common practice. The Smile singer, 22, hates reading poor spelling or grammar, even when used casually, like in a cell phone message. She tells British magazine Marie Claire, "I get upset about how illiterate young people are becoming. The other day, someone texted me in that f**king text speak without any vowels; I got so annoyed, I replied just in vowels."
