Lily Allen has criticised bitter journalists over the way her confrontation with Elton was reported in the media.
She and the pianist exchanged angry words as they co-hosted the GQ Men of the Year awards in London on Tuesday after Elton got annoyed by her drinking.
In a Myspace blog, Allen defended her actions and reasserted the she and the musician were close friends, saying she felt honoured to be asked to share the stage with him.
"I'm not defending my drunkenness because I don't need to, I'm 23 it was an awards ceremony I drank the free champagne, how awful of me, Lily wrote.
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.
Elton and I exchanged jokes and there were no hard feelings at all, in fact neither of us gave it a second thought.
She went on to describe showbiz journalists as bullies and said she shouldn't have to defend her actions.
