Lily Allen missed perks of fame

Apr 29 2014, 3:24am CDT | by

Lily Allen returned to music because she missed "free clothes and handbags".

The 28-year-old singer doesn't think being a stay-at-home mother to Ethel, two, and Marnie, 15 months, "suited her" and she longed for the excitement of performing again - as well as the perks of fame.

She said: "I wasn't good at staying at home all day, it didn't suit me. I'm creative, it's just who I am... I missed the positive feedback about my music from my fans.

"I missed the rush of performing. I missed the free clothes and handbags and the good tables in posh restaurants. I did!"

However, the 'Hard Out Here' star - who retired from pop music in 2009 - admits she worried returning to work would cause strain on family life, but is grateful the support of her husband Sam Cooper has made the change easier.

Speaking to the new edition of Britain's Glamour magazine, she added: "I was really worried about working and the pressure it was going to put us under, and it's actually made him more protective and more loving and more caring. He's there for me.

"It was a tough decision to make, a scary adjustment, and for the children. But my relationship with my husband is as strong as it's ever been. It's lovely to come home to."

Lily - whose parents are actor Keith Allen and producer Alison Owen - also admitted she is reluctant for her children to follow in her footsteps.

She said: "If you come from a dysfunctional family like I came from, it's pretty straightforward, that kind of dreaming...

"My parents weren't around much when I was a kid, so that's what you want for your kids, not to have that environment."

The new edition of Glamour magazine is on sale from Monday 5 May.

Taylor Swift's RED Tour - Singapore
Looking for a caffeinated boost, Taylor Swift dropped by a New York City Starbucks location for some freshly-brewed coffee on her way to the gym on Wednesday (July 16). The “Should’ve Said No” singer was breathtaking in a printed shirt dress with a belt and bright red lipstick as she carried her cup out the door (apparently she used the fake name Jenna while ordering). In a new interview, fun guitarist Jack Antonoff told GQ that he thinks Taylor is as amazing as the late King of Pop. "Ta ...

Lily Allen: I'm Not Allowed to Talk About Game of Thrones!

The Serpentine Gallery Summer Party - Arrivals
Back in May, Lily Allen claimed she was offered a role on Game of Thrones, but turned it down because the part required her to be felt up by her brother. As though that story weren't strange enough, it got even weirder when said brother - Alfie Allen, who plays Theon Greyjoy on HBO's most watched series - revealed that his big sister was lying and in had, in fact, never been offered a part on the series. Now, it seems Alfie has ordered Lily to make like ...

Penn Badgley Spotted With New Girlfriend, Sister of 'Girls' Star Jemima Kirke

Jul 13 2014 9:38pm CDT | Source: Oh No They Didn't!

First Annual Village Fete
A whole year after splitting with rock star royalty Zoë Kravitz (and eight months after possibly getting back together in Italy) it seems that former Gossip Girl star — or, should I say (spoiler alert), former Gossip Girl himself — Penn Badgley is dating again. This, of course, isn’t surprising; seven months is a long time, and Badgley is a young, attractive actor. It’s whom he’s dating, though, that’s the shocker: According to Us Weekly (who offered a set of paparazzi photos to back it up), Pen ...
