NME have confirmed that Lily Allen is going to take a 1 to 2 year break from music as soon as she wraps up her current tour. She plans on starting a record label,where she’ll scout and sign new talent and do some other behind the scenes stuff. But as we all know, a lot of musicians make similar promises and get bored quickly, so we hope the same will be true for Lily Allen.
I saw Lily Allen earlier this year and all I kept hearing is that she is a drunken mess on stage. Yes, she was drinking (and smoking) throughout the entire set, but she was very connected with the audience – telling jokes and even holding a cheesecake eating competition. She got through the entire set with no problems and just for kicks, closed the show with an awesome version of Britney Spears’ “Womanizer” that brought the house down. Come back Lily, we miss you already!
