Is Lily Allen Retiring From the Music Biz?
Several British newspapers are reporting that Allen made the announcement on her anti-piracy blog It's Not Alright, though PopEater has been unable to find the specific post. According to the newspapers reporting on the Allen story, the 'Smile' singer says she hasn't signed a new recording contract, and that she has "no plans to make another record."
"The days of me making money from recording music has been and gone as far as I'm concerned, so I don't stand to profit from legislation. Except future purchases of previously recorded material," Allen says in the post.
Allen is just 24 years old, and has had a wild ride in her brief but highly successful career. She soared to fame thanks to songs like 'Smile' and 'LDN,' and then seemingly got wrapped up in the pitfalls of celebrity. She often wrote blog posts about struggling with her weight and her overall unhappiness, and lately has joined the fight against music piracy.
"I finish up my dates in March and I'll be ready to do something else," Allen writes. "I've been on the road for four years and I've given my voice a real run for its money. I'm struggling, so I'm going to try something new."
Next up for Allen is a London play named 'Reasons to Be Pretty,' which she describes as "about the really damaging cult of beauty among young girls."
