Jourdan Dunn has attacked Lily Allen on Twitter for mentioning "ugly kids" in a song.

The British singer's controversial Sheezus album is released today and on track Insincerely Yours she mentions Jourdan, Rita Ora and Cara Delevingne. The 23-year-model, who has four-year-old son Riley, challenged the lyrics: "I don't give a f**k about your Instagram / About your lovely house or your ugly kids".

"Errm @lilyallen who's 'ugly kids' was you talking about in this song??" she queried on Twitter.

"I'm just curious that's all.

"I'm not here for 'twitter beef' I'm just asking a simple question (sic)"

Lily, who turns 29 today, has come under fire for her new album. The title has been criticised as mocking Kanye West's Yeezus record, while a recent performance she gave at London's GAY club seemed to imitate Beyoncé Knowles.

"I'm sick of explaining my lyrics to people, they're pop songs, no more, no less. If you don't get it or like it, look the other way. Simples," she fired back.

"Right, I'm off twitter to enjoy my birthday weekend. (sic)"

Jourdan sarcastically signed off with: ".@lilyallen Ohhh because my name rhymes with 'One'!!!!! Look at you, you lil lyrical genius!! (sic)"

Lily took a break from the music industry in 2010, but announced in 2012 that she was again working on new music. She's also busy raising the two kids she has with husband Sam Cooper, two-year-old Ethel and Marnie, 15 months.


Lily Allen recently said she returned to her singing career for the 'freebies'

During a recent interview, the star revealed why she decided to stage a comeback.

“I wasn’t good at staying home all day, it didn’t suit me,” Lily told British magazine Glamour. “I’m creative, it’s just who I am… I missed the positive feedback about my music from my fans.

“I missed the rush of performing. I missed the free clothes and handbags and the good tables in posh restaurants. I did!”
