Lily Allen quits music - eventually

The threat to quit music when she reaches 25, made by Lily Allen, apparently, sounds like the sort of insistence many people make when 25 seems ages and ages away. By 25, we had planned to running the world's first seahorse farm and that never happened.

No, what's fascinating about Allen's reported comment is that, while she intends to do three more years as a pop star, she only intends to produce one more album in that time. Now, don't get us wrong - the less work Allen does, the happier we are - but two albums in a five year-career? Tupac Shakur is more prolific than that, and he's been dead a decade. Is she worried she might not be able to keep up the quality if she did more than an album every thirty months?
