Lily Allen is to quit music for good

Lily Allen has stunned music fans by announcing through an online blog that she is to quit music. The Smile singer wants to take her career in another direction and is looking into the possibility of pursuing her interests in acting.

Her current album, It’s Not Me It’s You, will be her last as she confirmed on the blog, “I have not renegotiated my record contract and have no plans to make another record.” The news may shock her fans but those close to Lily say she has been feeling unsure about her future in music for some time. A source close to the 24-year-old said she has described herself as feeling “old” when she looked at some of the fresh musical talent currently on the scene.

Lily used her blog on the site set up to fight illegal file sharing, It’s Not Alright, to announce the news. She has since closed her blog as a result of the “abuse” she was receiving because of it. In recent times Lily has been extremely vocal in her condemnation of music piracy sites branding them “the biggest threat to British music’s future.”

Not one to waste time, Lily has already lined up her first acting role, and it’s pretty substantial. She will appear in the London’s West End in a new production of Neil LaBute’s play, Reasons to be Pretty. With a father and brother already in the acting profession and a mother who works in film, Lily will have all the support she could possibly need to make a success of her new venture.

It has been confirmed that Lily has tour dates booked until March of next year so it’ll be a few months before Ms. Allen can officially draw a line under her musical career.

Originally from Anglesey but moved to Cardiff earlier this year after living in London for the past 4 years. Having undertaken a degree in English Literature from the University Of Wales Bangor, I won a place at The Drama Centre London, Central Saint Martins to study towards a Masters degree.
