English recording artist/ singer-songwriter Lily Allen is, as we previously reported, already at work in the studio, working on tunes with producer Greg Kurstin after a three year hiatus following her 2009 album, It’s Not Me, It’s You. But, if that music is ever released it won’t be under the name Lily Allen—the singer has changed her professional name.

Lily Allen has been a trendsetter throughout her career, beginning with her rise to fame on MySpace and then eventually Facebook. Allen publicly claimed to have no desire to make albums because of the impossibility of earning money from them. It’s a move that more and more artists appear to be gravitating towards, by seeking a nontraditional means of music distribution.
But don’t worry about Allen living the life of a starving artist, these days she could solely live off lawsuits like the one regarding an interview that quoted her slamming David and Victoria Beckham. It’s an interview, that in fact, never took place.

Because it beats releasing a crappy pop album to an inevitable and overdue backlash, Lily Allen is set to be the star of her own, sigh, reality TV program, according to Spinner. The British pop singer, who announced last year that she was retiring from music following the release of her two albums (Alright, Still and It’s Not Me, It’s You), will star in the show, which will focus on her efforts to set up her own fashion outlet, Lucy in Disguise. Filming has already begun, and the show will air next year.

We previously brought you the sad news of BBC 6 Music shutting down. Since its launch in 2002, it has become one of the most popular programs from the British Broadcasting Company for its “cutting edge music of today, the iconic and groundbreaking music of the past 40 years and unlimited access to the BBC’s wonderful music archive.” Much to listeners’ dismay, the end of BBC 6 Music means the end of the best show for the best indie tunes.
They weren’t the only ones who were disappointed. British musicians such as Radiohead, Lily Allen, and David Bowie have spoken out against the shutdown and urge people to continue and sign the online petition.

Even after her publicist denied the rumors of her quitting music altogether, NME has reported that loud-mouthed and very opinionated British pop star, Lily Allen, will be taking a break for one or two years.
However, this doesn’t necessarily announce a retirement. During this time she will be working on her new record label and dipping into the fashion industry. She’s so determined to take this break and start on her new projects that she’s even canceled her last appearance with Dizzee Rascal on March 7.

Lily Allen is a tricky girl. She says one thing and does another. For instance, she vehemently said the Featured Artists Coalition was too nice about music piracy when she herself had illegal mixtapes on her website. Or how about when she said she might quit the music business altogether but then hopped on a tour with rapper, Dizzee Rascal?
Like Kanye West, Allen always seems to be popping up in the news about with blunt opinions but what sets her apart is the fact that she always claims she has a plan. These plans may not necessarily pull through but the loud-mouthed and stubborn pop star does always know what she wants.
Right at this moment, Allen has decided to launch her own record label.

It seems like Lily Allen is always complaining about something, and her most recent tirade is about illegal downloading and copyright infringement. This would be a plausible argument if it wasn’t for the fact that she’s a total hypocrite. According to TorrentFreak, Lily had two free mix tapes on her website that were not authorized by the artists; she never got permission to use the songs, let alone give them away for free.

Illegal downloaders in the UK beware: the list of musicians ready to put the kibosh on your internet connection if you’re downloading illegally is getting longer, and more influential every day.
According to NME, Radiohead’s Ed O’Brien, Blur’s Dave Rowntree and Keane’s Tim Rice-Oxley are among the musicians who have signed up to a motion by the Featured Artists Coalition to support the idea of a ‘three strikes’ rule for illegal downloaders. Under the proposed deal, those who illegally download would receive up to three letters with increasing severity, then a downgrade on the speed of their internet connection if they continue.
