Allen Swears Off Wild Ways
Pop star Lily Allen is convinced her partying days are behind her - because she no longer enjoys the company she kept in her club-hopping days.
The singer, 23, insists she no longer has any desire to hit the dancefloor with friends - because she now prefers quiet dinners and intellectual conversation.
She says, "My mates are in a totally different place. I've grown up so much and they are still all into going out and dancing and taking drugs.
"I hang out with much older people, I go for dinners at posh places and talk about art! I find that my life was sort of lacking in friends. I'm meeting more interesting people who tax my brain."
And the Smile hitmaker hints she may be ready to quit the spotlight for good - to become a full-time mother.
She adds, "What I really want out of my life is to have children. I don't think I want to be doing this (singing) at the same time as that. I certainly wouldn't want to mix the two. But I do enjoy it."
