Lily Allen gets writer's block

Lily Allen wants to ''live a little bit more'' before making new music as she has ran out of things to write about

Lily Allen is quitting music because she has nothing else to write about.

The 'Fear' singer - who recently announced she was retiring from singing - says she plans to take an indefinite break from the pop world, but may return in the future.

She told BANG Showbiz: "I'm definitely taking a break. I've been on the road for nearly five years so I'm tired and I need a break. I've written about just about everything that's happened in my life so I feel like I need to go out and live a little bit more and then I'll see what I'm going to do."

Since announcing her retirement, the 24-year-old star - who won Best Track for her single 'The Fear' at the Q Awards in London yesterday (26.10.09) - has been rumoured to have landed a role in 'Reasons to be Pretty', a stage production in London's West End.

Although she wouldn't confirm the speculation, the star says she is open to anything during her hiatus.

She said: "I might be doing the play, it isn't confirmed yet. I'm just keeping all my options open."
