Lily Allen's 'Pointless' Worries
'Smile' singer Lily Allen admits she often worries her life is ''pointless'' and that it doesn't have ''a lot of substance''.
Lily Allen often thinks her life is "pointless".
The 'Smile' singer - who is currently having a break from the music with the intention of starting a family with her boyfriend Sam Cooper - recently spent time in the Brazilian rainforest learning about deforestation because she worries her life doesn't have "a lot of substance" to it. She said: "A lot of my life is very vacuous. It doesn't have a lot of substance and I guess I feel it's a bit pointless. And, yes, coming here makes me feel I can put my fame to good use. I'm not pretending to know everything and I don't understand this as well as I should, but I'm here to get my head around it."
The 25-year-old star also admits she hates how "glossy" celebrities look, and thinks of it as a personal challenge to rebel from that stereotype.
She explained to You magazine: "I see it as my responsibility to be like that. There are always pictures of me looking like s**t in the papers, but you can't wear make-up all the time, and if you do, just because you are famous. well, I don't think it's a very good message to send."
Lily travelled to the rainforest as part of the Sky Rainforest Rescue project, to learn about different ways to help tackle deforestation.
