Lily Allen shared an odd tribute to Muhammad Ali as she entertained her children in a butterfly house.
The mum-of-two posted a clip of her with the beautiful insect landing on her arm and she likening it to the boxing legend who sadly died aged 74 on Friday.
But as she tried to recite his famous quote she began with: “Dance like a butterfly…” instead of “Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee.”
Sporting bright purple hair and a camera slung round her neck, Lily smiled at the touching moment as she spoke with her children who were just out of sight.
The singer, 31, recently announced she was launching her own record label and ditching making her own music.
Lily announced the arrival of Bank Holiday Records on the actual Bank Holiday which is her second record label after In The Name Of – a Sony offshoot that Lily founded in 2011.

It folded three years later with just two acts on its books.
It was only earlier this year that Lily found herself in hot water when she appeared to throw shade at Rita Ora following her personal tribute to Prince who died aged 57.
Rita penned a lengthy post honouring the late star, who passed away at his Paisley Park mansion in Minneapolis, and the Smile singer responded by asking if she had a picture to prove she actually knew him in person.
Rita wrote: “This is coming from a place I never new existed in my heart. You were so special to me your presence the music we created the dance-off’s we used to have the laughing we shared.
“The funk oozing out of you was uncontrollable. I’m not quite sure what to do with myself but I will miss you forever and always. I love you my dear kind friend.

“May all my prayers go to his family the whole band (you know who you are, I love you all so much) anybody who felt even one little bit of what I was lucky enough to experience face to face, and let us keep alive the one thing he knew would last forever, his music. I love you P. I will never forget you.
“Love your Rita.”
FilmMagic)Lily then wrote back: “Pics or it never happened.”
After coming under fire from Rita fans, Lily added: “I didn’t mean that in a mean way, I’m just jealous you were so close to my idol. #superfan #ritabots go IN.”
But the damage had already been done and one fan fumed in response: “Jealous flop b**ch.”
“If he was your f**king idol why haven’t you head of his last f**king album dear Lily? Oh yeah Rita Ora features on it,” said another.
