I know it's an older song now, but I just realised that there's a bit of a clever lyric in Lily Allen's "The Fear":
"I look at the sun and I look in the mirror,
I'm on the right track, yeah I'm onto a winner."
So just this week I figured it out. She's not just talking about vague self-reflection, gazing off into the distance or examining herself, although it's that, too. Because, you know what? The Sun and The Mirror are tabloid newspapers in the UK. She's talking about getting tabloid-famous! How did I miss this? Well, probably because I don't live in the UK and I don't read newspapers at all.
