Lily Allen: “My daughters ruined my career”

“I love my daughters, they complete me.” However, when it comes to fame in pop music, they have completely ruined me.

This is what the artist, who made his debut at the age of 21, said Smile. Now, 17 years later, to the microphones of Radio Times podcastAllen spoke about her relationship between her musical pursuits and motherhood. In fact, the singer has two daughters, Ethel Mary and Marnie Rose, with her ex-husband Sam Cooper.

Host Miquita Oliver, a guest on the podcast along with Allen, acknowledged the honest comment: “It's a wonderful answer, I'm really glad someone said it. Usually people dodge the question and say “No, of course!” ».

Allen further commented on the popular idea that one can be both an exceptional mother and a very successful artist: “The two things have nothing to do with each other.” It bothers me a lot when people say that you can have both, because the truth is that this is not the case.

To then explain his decision: “Some people choose to put their career ahead of their children, and that's their right.” But my parents were pretty absent as a child, and I feel like that left me scarred that I don't want to repeat in my films. So I decided to take a step back and focus on her. I’m glad I did because they are solid, down-to-earth people.”
