Parents can rest easy – when it comes to drug use, Lily Allen is out there to set the record straight.

"The only story is that drugs are bad and they will kill you – you will become a prostitute, a rapist or a dealer. But that's not true," she says in an interview with Word magazine. “I know lots of people who take cocaine three nights a week and get up and go to work. But we never hear that side of the story. I wish people wouldn’t sensationalize this thing that just exists."

So profound! But what about all that death and ruined life stuff, Lily?

“Some people are just bad at taking drugs," she explains. She also admits she's done cocaine, but only because she didn't want to feel left out, not because she enjoyed it.

Got it. Have we learned nothing from Amy Winehouse?
