    I know this is a low brow topic that you'd expect to see at one of those...gossip magazine forums. But I'll go ahead and continue anyway

    I was having a debate with my friend. I said that Lily Allen was clearly a chav because of the way she speaks, acts and her general attitude. As well as her dress sense.

    He thinks shes hot, so of course he tried to say that she wasn't - citing her middle class upbringing. I quickly pointed out that class doesn't determine a chav. So what do you guys think?


    And also, on a side note. What other celebrities would you consider chavs (except from the streets...obviously)?

    No, she isn't.

    She's got enough money not to be, and she seems to have had a decent education.

    Poverty and ignorance appear to be crucial components of the stereotype.

    And furthermore, I don't see her doing petty crime, or putting on thick layers of makeup, or a bunch of other stuff that's said about chavs.

    Oh, and if putting on brand-name clothing and having a wonky attitude, or talking with a colloquial tint is what is required to be a chav, every other rapper in the U.S. is one.

    Emerging British subculture which is quickly becoming an epidemic. Chavs can be found the length and breadth of the country, hanging around any junk food outlet, off licence or just hanging around the streets, where they pass the time by vandalising property, drinking cheap cider, shouting abuse at passers by and terrorising old people.

    Appearance: Chavs have a strict dress code. Designer labels are everything, although knocked off/fake items are almost de-rigeur. Typically, the male chav will wear a Nickelson or Schott hooded top, baggy tracksuit trousers, white designer trainers, and a baseball cap by burberry or Nike. The female chav (chavette) will have peroxide blonde hair scrunched so tight into a pony tail with colourful scrunchies that her forehead stretches. She will wear a dark blue tracksuit with white stripes, an enormous puffa jacket, hoop earrings, and white trainers. Female chavs are forbidden from wearing socks, and all chavs must wear as much fake gold jewellery as they can fit on their bodies. Mobiles are an added status symbol, and when equipped, the chav must shout into it in the most anti-social way possible, using at least one expletive and the word "innit" per second. Every other word in between should be unrecognisable to non-chavs.

    Cars: Typically the Vauxhall Nova, but could include Ford Escort/Orion, Vauxhall Astra, and for chavs with "bling", even a totally shagged 3 series BMW. Whatever the type of car, it must have a spoiler shaped plank of MDF nailed to the back, 20" alloy wheels which rub on the wheel arches over every bump, a badly fitted bodykit (extra points for being able to see EXACTLY where the car ends and bodykit starts), a lairy paint job with runs in it, exhaust pipes the size of the space shuttle's booster nozzles, and blue LED's on the washer jets. Neon undercar lighting is also desirable.

    Attitude: The chav's attitude depends heavily on the number of mates backing him up. If he's on his own, he'll skulk along anonymously. In numbers, he'll challenge anyone to anything.

    my 2 cents: In real life she's probably an intelligent, well-mannered person, but she acts a certain way to sell records - that way being a prostitute.

    When i first heard her i thought "this is alright". by the second time it was "alright the novelty is dead" and it's been worse after each hearing.

    She's not a chav, that's coming from someone who does not like her if that helps.

    i dont see her as a chav. after the money she has made selling these songs. alot of us ran the streets as teens, but grew up quick. its funnier to party in a house, or bar.
