British singer Lily Allen has been branded 'immature' after she urged parents to encourage their kids to try drugs.
The 23-year-old pop singer's said that potentially lethal Class A drugs like ecstasy might not harm them - so the best way to find out was to take them.
"Parents should say, 'Drugs might seem fun, but they do funny things to your brain. Some people react to it good, some don't. Try it and see what you think'." News of the World quoted Allen, as saying.
The singer said that only fame stops her bingeing on ecstasy pills.
"If I hadn't been famous I'd have taken loads. Wouldn't be too wise right now," Allen said.
"I've never been good with cocaine or drugs like that. They make me passionately angry on everything. I steer clear of heroin or crack," she added.
However, Tory MP Patrick Mercer has called Lily's drug rant 'extraordinary'.
Rob Broomfield, of Dad's Against Drugs, slammed her as 'immature'.
