One of Lily’s first appearances was on an episode of “The Comic Strip Presents…” which her father had co-written. Later on she would attend numerous schools. This was mainly because she had become delinquent, getting expelled numerous times for smoking and drinking. She was then discovered by Rachel Santesso who started giving her singing lessons. After singing a song for a school production of “Dumbo”, she decided to pursue music career fully. She learned the piano, took singing lessons, and started to learn various instruments. At the age of 15, she decided to drop out of school to focus on her music career.

Allen met her first manager in Ibiza, where she worked at a record store. During this time, she was rejected by numerous record labels but eventually used her father’s connections to get signed to London Records in 2002. However, when the executive who signed her left the label, they lost interest. She took some time to study horticulture but then returned to music, writing songs while looking for the next opportunity. In 2005, she was signed to Regal Recordings and they gave her money to produce her first album despite being busy with other popular bands such as Coldplay. This led to Lily posting on Myspace and her demos started to earn a significant amount of popularity. Eventually, her popularity led to her being noticed by her label and many publications.

Allen’s debut album entitled “Alright, Still” was released in 2006 and it contained a lot of her songs which were released on MySpace. Her album started to gain a lot of acclaim and was called one of the top 10 albums of 2006 by “Entertainment Weekly” despite not being released yet in the United States. The album eventually released in the US and reached the 20th spot in the Billboard 200. She started touring and promoting her album. In 2008, she was given a television deal entitled “Lily Allen and Friends” which had a lot of known guests including Mark Ronson, James Corden, and Joanna Page. The show only lasted for a season because of her music commitments.

After struggling to find direction for her next album, mainly because of creative disagreements, she started to post once again to her MySpace page. She cancelled a few appearances because her album was behind schedule and reports of her being intoxicated generated a lot of criticism. She had a lot of problems during this time and a miscarriage caused her next album “It’s Not Me, It’s You” to be delayed. It was released in early 2009 and reached the top of the charts for numerous countries. It certified platinum in the United Kingdom and Allen would then go on tour to promote it. Later in the year, she announced that she had no plans to make another record and would look into a career in acting.

In 2011, she launched her own record label and then started writing songs once again. The following year, she announced that she was working on another album and it was then revealed that her next album would be entitled “Sheezus”.

For her personal life, it is known that Allen had a relationship with Ed Simons and the couple were expecting a child but suffered miscarriage. She then dated Sam Cooper in 2009 however their first child had complications and was stillborn. They married in 2011 and now have two children.
