Lily Allen says that drink and drugs are "what life's all about".

The 24-year-old singer - who celebrated her Q Award win for Best Track for single 'The Fear' at a pub with rockers The Cribs and Edwyn Collins after the London ceremony on Monday (26.10.09) - insists you would take the fun out of life if you never got intoxicated.

The 'Not Fair' star is quoted by Britain's Daily Star newspaper as saying: "Why the hell would you give up booze? No drinking until Christmas, yeah right? Drink and class A drugs - that's what life's all about."

Lily also revealed her new man Sam Cooper - who attended the star-studded ceremony with her - is putting a smile on her face.

She said: "Everything is great. I'm really happy - he makes me really happy. We're having a good time."

Lily has previously admitted she partied a little too hard when she first shot to fame in the pop world.

She said: "If you'd come to my place two years ago, I wouldn't have been up before midday. There would have been half-empty vodka bottles everywhere, drugs, whatever. But loads of people take drugs and then get up and work, you can never say never."
