The Mirror has, effectively, woken us all up in our beds in the middle of the night to break some astonishing news:
Exclusive by Nicola Methven 06/07/2007
CHART-topping singer Lily Allen is planning to quit pop - just a year after making it big.
Really? She's about to quit, is she?
Don't plan the street party just yet, though:
In a TV documentary filmed during her turbulent year touring the US, she confesses: "It's not something I want to be doing for 15 years.
"I want to get married and have children and move to the countryside.
"I don't want to be pop star for ever."
Ah. So when Nicola Methven says that Allen has threatened to quit, she means at some point between now and 2022. That could mean as few as a dozen more albums, you know.
