Lily Allen cringes at condoms

Singer Lily Allen hates the fact she is so famous she can't buy condoms or visit sexual health clinics

Lily Allen says she is too famous to buy condoms.

The 'Fear' singer says fame prevents her from doing "regular daily stuff", like buying contraception, without causing a fuss.

She said: "People say you pay the price of fame. There are some things I just can't do anymore. Like when I've had sex, I can't go to the sexual health clinic. I can't go to a shop to get condoms - just regular daily stuff that's gotten difficult."

Meanwhile, Lily - who admits she has a penchant for older men and wants to have sex with Lucian Freud - has revealed she accidentally propositioned music mogul Simon Cowell, 49, via text message.

When her brief relationship with art dealer Jay Jopling, 45, ended, the currently single singer contacted 'The X-Factor' judge by mistake.

She said: "Over Christmas, I was kind of seeing this guy and then it was over. So I texted my godmother and told her. As a joke I said, 'Maybe my next conquest should be Simon Cowell.' But you know that thing where when someone is in your mind you accidentally text them? So I texted him that. He replied, 'Sorry?' "
