The Smile singer recently announced she wanted to knock her music career on the head and now she has put a date to that desire.

"My last gig is my Dizzee Rascal concert at the O2in March,” Allen told BBC Radio 1.

"That's the last thing I've got planned. I'm just going to concentrate on doing some behind the scenes sort of stuff."

That "stuff" includes starting a record label "for new bands" and dipping her toe into the fashion business.

"It's about making fashion democratic," she said.

"That's the idea behind it. It's about getting really nice clothes, but letting people rent them for affordable prices so they can go out and feel like a million dollars and it won't cost them a million dollars."

Lily is also due to take to the West End stage in reasons to be pretty, a play about bored teenagers.

As well as the March O2 date, Allen is appearing for four nights at the Brixton Academy, before she hangs up her microphone.

One reason I have issues with online reporters is their continual refusal to do even the most basic of investigation. 'reasons to be pretty' isn't a play about 'bored teenagers'. Here's a suggestion: get a copy of the play or at the very least, read one of the reviews from it's Broadway production to get some idea of what the plot actually is about.
