Just kidding! Lily Allen announces U.K. dates

on September 28, 2009, 12:15pm

Oh Lily Allen, you’re such a joker! Just days after supposedly announcing your retirement from the world of music, you have unveiled plans for a two-night U.K. co-headlining stint with Dizzee Rascal for later next year.

“I’m really looking forward to playing these special shows — I’m a massive fan of what Dizzee does,” Allen said (via NME), while Dizzee Rascal commented: “Lily and I have both worked well in the past so it’s no doubt these shows will be nights to remember.”

Maybe I missed something, but I don’t see any mention above regarding last week’s comments, you know, the ones that went something like this: “The days of me making money from recording music have been and gone as far as I’m concerned, so I don’t (at this point) stand to profit from legislation [from the government regarding file-sharing]. Except future purchases of previously recorded material (which won’t be much).”

So, did you change your mind? Or have you ended what quite possibly would be the shortest retirement ever (three days!)? Then again, you could have just been pulling our legs the whole time! LOL for realz!

Either way, we’re really looking forward to your two-disc deluxe edition of It’s Not Me, It’s You that you also just announced. It’s good to have you back. Seriously.
