Lily Allen Has Not Given Up:
Lily Allen was surprised that she was into making music so soon after retiring.
The 28-year old singer has left the industry four years ago to start a family now has two children, Ethel, two, and 12-month-old Marnie, with husband Sam Cooper. Even though her domestic life could not fill her thirst for creativity and soon she wanted to be back in the industry making music.
Lily returned in late 2013 with new single ‘Hard Out Here’ and admits she was shocked by her need to write songs.
She told Q magazine: ‘I wasn’t surprised to come back again, but I was surprised to want to so soon.
‘It’s been quite a shock … a lot has changed in four years.’
Lily is currently finishing her new album which is out in May and said the controversy surrounding her video for ‘Hard Out Here’ was ‘surprising’ after it was branded racist and sexist by some commentators because of its content showing female dancers dressed provocatively and twerking.
Lily felt the need to defend herself but often wishes she had stayed silent on the issue.
She said: ‘Because that saying, ‘Never complain, never explain’, is right to a degree … but when you’re offending people maybe it is a good idea to face the consequences.
‘Oh, I don’t know! Ultimately, I make pop music. I try and shove as much into three-and-a-half minutes as I can. I can’t get it all right … you can only try.”
Lily Allen has always been known to be “mouthy”. She explains how she finds the show biz stinking of desperation and thinks gaining fame is much different than what she expected it to be talking to Esquire magazine she said
“I feel like when I was growing up and dreaming of being a pop star, it was the days of Britpop when things felt authentic and anarchic, and people were taking drugs and having a lot of fun and having sex with each other and it wasn’t fake, it was real,” she said.
We wish that now Lily has decided not to retire she would also try to shut her mouth once in a while coz talking trash won’t take her anywhere.
