Lily Allen is set to write a new memoir.
As reported by Pitchfork, the Bookseller reports that she’s signed on with Blink to write an autobiography due to be published in Autumn 2018. It’ll apparently cover personal aspects such as eating disorders and drink and drug addiction, as well as her career.
She might even get some a little bit of space to talk about that time when she attended a garden party with Rupert Murdoch and Nigel Farage, and then made fun of them (“Hope I’m not sitting next to Voldemort or Fromage. I might be sick”).
As reported by Stereogum, Lily says: “Some of it I think might be uncomfortable and shocking and brutal. There will be good stuff in there too; happy times. I will try and make it funny. I know it’s about me but I hope that a lot of it will ring true with anyone who reads it. It won’t be written with shame. It will be true”.
Lily’s last album ‘Sheezus’ came out in 2014. Revisit the video for ‘As Long As I Got You’ from ‘Sheezus’ below.
