Lily Allen: ‘it’s boring’ being a stay-at-home mum

Singer says she's returned to work in the music industry because being a mum didn't give her anywhere to put her creativity


Lily Allen went back to work because she got bored staying at home with her children.


“I thought I’d be a really happy mum just sitting at home, playing with my kids. That was my dream,” Lily told France’s NRJ Radio, according to the Mail Online.

“I love my children but I’m a very impatient, busy person naturally so two babies – neither of them can talk – it was quite boring staying at home all day talking to people who can’t talk back.

“I didn’t realise how much of a creative person I am and that I need somewhere to put my creativity.”

Well, if there’s one thing we can expect from Lily, mum to Ethel, 2, and 14-month-old Marnie, it’s honesty.

Lily also says she’s more conscious of her lyrics now she has kids.

“When I write music now, I’m conscious that I have two children and they’re going to hear it,” she says. “I can’t be too sexy or gross or rude because that would be embarrassing for them. It’s a different kind of me, but there are still the same elements.”
