Lily reveals tour plans

Lily reveals tour plans

Days after Lily Allen announced she was quitting the music industry, the 24-year-old star has revealed plans to tour the UK with ‘Bonkers’ rapper Dizzee Rascal next March.

In an entry on her new blog - called It's Not Alright, which aims to stop people file sharing music on the internet – Lily said last week she had no plans to tour or record again.

She wrote: "Just so you know, I have not renegotiated my record contract and have no plans to make another record. 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 stand to profit from legislation. Except future purchases of previously recorded material."

Lily – who deleted the blog shortly afterwards – claimed she is now focusing on her appearance in a London theatre production called 'Reasons to be Pretty', which follows a group of working-class people who are bored with their lives.

The singer’s spokesperson played down her claims, saying: "She is not quitting pop music and is still promoting her current album, which is why she said she is not thinking ahead to another record."

However, it is not the first time Lily has voiced her desire to give up her music career.

Earlier this month, she said: "I'm not going record and tour again for quite a while.”
