It’s not that farfetched to say that artists go through phases and thus…
…is the case with one of my favorites: Lily Allen
It’s being reported now that Lily is looking to find her place in the music industry and to find where she fits.
A source told Grazia magazine: “Lily is a bit lost and trying to find her place. She is so extreme and she’s used to focusing on being one thing at a time: how to be a pop star, a mum and a wife – she’s still working it out. It seems her default mode to go wild because it’s what she’s always done.”
I can respect her for honestly losing her way at times because hey, it happens to the best of us! It’s okay to question and to wonder what is the way we should go. It’s okay to be unsure. I will go ahead and say that right now without batting an eye 😀
Lily burst into the music atmosphere in 2006 with songs like “Smile” and “LDN”. She became well known fast and did very well for herself playing major festivals like Glastonbury.
LA faded into the distance in the music business when she married her now-husband Sam Cooper in 2011 and started a family. She had a great run last year with a brand new album in 2014 called “Sheezus” which was a tongue and cheek reference to Kayne West’s last album “Yeezus”.
I remember hearing about the most recent Lily Allen news and that was that she collapsed at Glastonbury! The festival was one that Allen has played every single year and this year she partied with her friends too, of course!
According to her friend and fellow rapper, Dizzee Rascal, Lily had been sober for 10 months straight and drank heavily for the first time. To me, I thought heat exhaustion was to blame, but actually that makes a whole lot of sense! I heard that Lily hadn’t had a sip since December, so I’m not quite sure exactly how long she’s been sober from alcohol to be honest.
In better news, Lily has just signed a contract with IMG models and is hard at work on her 4th studio album which I cannot wait to hear! I’ve loved all her albums so far!
I’ve got confidence that Lily will find herself just in the nick of time 🙂
