Lily Allen on This Morning

Lily Allen has revealed the reason she decided to take a break from music was because she got ''fed up'' of the character she has been playing

Lily Allen is "fed up" of Lily Allen.

The singer has revealed the reason she decided to take a self-imposed break from music is because she doesn't want to play her pop character anymore.

Lily - whose first album 'Alright, Still' came out in 2006 - said: "I just felt I'm at a point in my life where I need to be at home more. And not travelling the world and jumping up and down on stages... I'm just a bit fed up of the character that I've played for the past five years, at the moment."

Although she is on hiatus, Lily is currently working on a top secret musical project.

She added to British daytime ITV show 'This Morning': "I'm still working in music, I'm still writing music, maybe, for other people and I'm involved with trying to do a musical at the moment, that's really exciting."

Lily says the best thing about being away from the music business is being able to live a more sedate life.

The 25-year-old pop star - who is dating builder Sam Cooper - explained: "I think I've been living life in an incredibly fast lane for the past five years. And I just feel the need to sit back and relax a little bit more. So many people in my position go a bit mad. Maybe that's because they are pushing themselves a bit too hard. So this feels like almost the sensible thing to do; to step away from it."

Chart-topping sunny pop, often with a melancholy lyrical undertone or some caustic social comment, from one of the UK's most idiosyncratic stars.
