Allen Confirms Retirement From Music
LILY ALLEN has confirmed she has no intention to ever record another album.
The British pop star is currently leading a campaign to stamp-out illegal online file-sharing in the U.K., encouraging music lovers to buy albums in order to save the struggling record industry.
And she has taken to her blog to tell fans she doesn't stand to gain financially from the fight - because she is quitting her music career for good.
She writes, "Just so you know, I have not renegotiated my record contract and have no plans to make another record (applause).
"I do however remain a fan of new music, so this is not some selfish crusade. The days of me making money from recording music has been and gone as far as I'm concerned, so I don't (at this point) stand to profit from legislation, except future purchases of previously recorded material (which won't be much)."
Allen is set to test her acting skills after landing the lead role in writer/director Neil LaBute's upcoming London play Reasons To Be Pretty.
