Allen Denies Retirement Rumours
LATEST: British pop star Lily Allen has denied reports she is to quit the music business and insists the public shouldn't believe everything she says. The 22-year-old recently vowed that her next album - the follow-up to her 2006 debut Alright, Still - would be her last as she is desperate to lead a normal life. Allen now claims her remarks were untrue, and was joking when she confessed: "It's a great job but it doesn't leave time for what's important - like having a family. "I'm going to do one more album." But the Smile hitmaker is confident she has a long career in the music industry ahead of her and has urged the media not to take her comments too seriously. She says, "Of course I'm not going to retire. I talk this crap all the time and they (the press) all know it, so how come this time they didn't get it? Silly people. "I am having the best time of my life."
