Lily Allen spoke out Friday about her spat with Elton John at a London awards show Tuesday night.

“Elton John and I are friends,” the pop star writes in a new entry on her MySpace blog.

The online posting refers to an incident when an apparently tipsy Allen clashed with John at the GQ Men of the Year awards ceremony, which the pair co-presented on Sept. 2.

As Allen, 23, introduced a segment as a “very special point in the evening,” John, 61, said, “What, you are going to have another drink?”

Allen shot back, “F— off Elton, I’m 40 years younger than you.” (Click here to see the R-rated footage on YouTube.)

On her blog, Allen also denies that she was disgracefully drunk, claiming that she did nothing wrong by taking advantage of the free booze.

“I’m not defending my drunkeness because i don’t need to, i’m 23 it was an awards ceremony i drank the free champagne, how awful of me,” she writes.

She also blames the media for over-hyping the supposed feud.

“Trying to create a feud on the other hand, and trying to make me out as being some rude little girl with a drink problem is just unfair,” she says. “Elton and I exchanged jokes and there were no hard feelings at all, in fact neither of us gave it a second thought.”

The singer is currently waiting for her second studio album to be released. In the meantime, she adds that she’ll be staying indoors all weekend to avoid the paparazzi.
