Los Angeles - Lily Allen claims MTV want to ban her music video during the daytime because it promotes anti-social behaviour.

The Hard Out Here singer is seen in the video for her song Our Time drinking from a flask in the back of a taxi before fighting with another version of herself dressed as a hot dog.

Lily revealed the ban on Twitter by posting an e-mail sent to her by her management, along with the caption, "Age of Beige (sic)".

The e-mail read: "MTV want to ban the Our Time video during the daytime, unless they get a clean edit that show you a) NOT DRINKING FROM A FLASK and b) NOT DISPLAYING ANTI-SOCIAL BEHAVIOUR FROM DRINKING BY FIGHTING WITH THE HOT DOG. I told the label we are NOT making a clean version of the video. Bring on the controversy! (sic)"

Lily then hit back at the channel by writing on Twitter: "I thought MTV just played Catfish and My Super Sweet 16."

Fans were quick to support the 28-year-old star, who is preparing to release her new album Sheezus and one follower wrote: "They're right, hotdog attacks are a real problem nowadays. Don't promote it."

Meanwhile, when she's not fighting to get her music videos on TV, Lily admits she's become addicted to dating app Tinder, despite being married to Sam Cooper, with whom she has Ethel, now two, and Marnie, 14 months.

Lily tweeted: "Just discovered tinder. *Waves goodbye to life* (sic)"
