Lily Quits Music For Fashion

with one comment

Popstrel  Lily Allen has packed in her music career to concentrate on a fashion line.

The singer,24, has admitted that she won’t be making another album, instead concentrating on opening a trendy ‘rent-a-frock’ shop with her sister Sarah Owen.

Speaking backstage at the NME Awards Lily said: “I’m not making another album.  It’s a really big commitment to do an album these days.

“People don’t buy music anymore and I don’t want to tie myself to being on the road for three years.”

Lily has some exciting ventures for her progression into fashion. First of all she has started a project with designer Wayne Hemingway, her Lucy In Disguise fashion line and the opening of a clothes rental shop in central London.

Speaking about the clothing line/shop,she said: I’m in the office everyday sourcing clothes and getting really excited. We’ll have loads of amazing stuff that would be really expensive to buy, but girls can come in, hire something for one night and have a laugh’’

The singer will launch her Lucy In Disguise range at the Vintage at Goodwood Festival in August

Lily’s music career has taken a bit of a nosedive of late, with lukewarm reactions to her latest album and sales figures not doing as well as they could. I personally remember her line a few years ago at New Look and not being overly impressed.

So do you think this is a good idea? Is this a natural progression for the star or do you think she should just stick to her day job?

  1. I think Lily will do brilliantly with this business. I think there is a lot of truth about what she said about the music industry these days. At the end of the day she need to make money somehow and at least she is clever enough to move on from singing and do something else. I mean we all change jobs and career so why cant celebrities do that too? And the idea of a shop where you can rent a fab dress doesn’t seem stupid at all. She is also going to involve her sister into this which sounds like a good idea as they can both have a lot of fun doing it and make money at the same time. Well done Lily & Thumbs up!
