Lily Allen to quit music for acting – Daily Gossip
Welcome to the Daily Gossip: your daily stop-off to find out who in the world of music has been up to what.

Today's top gossip:

Lily Allen says she is ready to give up music in order to pursue a career in acting. The singer said she's already been offered the lead role in a West End play, which she will start working on after her current tour finishes in March. "I've been on the road for four years and I've given my voice a real run for its money," she said. "I'm struggling so I'm going to try something new." Allen said she's set to play the lead in Neil LaBute's 'Reasons To Be Pretty', and she revealed she's already receiving some drama training from a RADA representative. "The play is about themes close to my heart," Allen explained, adding that she finds the prospect of starring in the production "amazing and terrifying" (The Sun).
