London, April 30 IANS | 3 months ago

Singer Lily Allen has returned to music because she missed the "free clothes and handbags" that came with fame.


The 28-year-old doesn't think being a stay-at-home mother to Ethel, two, and Marnie, one, suited her as she longed for the excitement of performing again as well as the perks of fame, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

"I wasn't good at staying at home all day, it didn't suit me. I'm creative, it's just who I am. I missed the positive feedback about my music from my fans. I missed the rush of performing. I missed the free clothes and handbags and the good tables in posh restaurants," said Allen.

The singer, who took a break from pop music in 2009, said returning to work was not an easy decision.

"It was a tough decision to make, a scary adjustment, and for the children. I was really worried about working and the pressure it was going to put us under," said Allen.

Referring to the support that her husband Sam Cooper has given her in deciding on the comeback, she said: "It's actually made him more protective and more loving and more caring. He's there for me."
