So­cial me­dia world scares mum Lily

The West Australian - - ACCESS ALL AREAS -

Lily Allen’s daugh­ters are “al­ready too wor­ried” about their ap­pear­ance. The 33-year-old singer, left, who per­forms in Perth in Fe­bru­ary, has six-year-old Ethel and five-year-old Marnie with ex-hus­band Sam Cooper. She said she was “ter­ri­fied” of bring­ing them up in the so­cial me­dia world, be­cause they al­ready had body hang-ups. “My daugh­ters are al­ready too wor­ried about the way they look, their clothes,” she said. “It’s only a mat­ter of . . . hours be­fore they’re ask­ing for Won­der­bras for their In­sta­gram ac­counts. That s... ter­ri­fies me.” For now, Allen isn’t too wor­ried, as her young daugh­ters are more in­ter­ested in read­ing than any­thing else. “They ab­so­lutely adore read­ing. Ethel’s pretty good, but Marnie just looks at the pic­tures and makes up the words,” she told The Guardian news­pa­per. “It’s very sweet. She’ll prob­a­bly be quite a good song­writer. We’ll go to the park and then they’re like, ‘Can we go to the li­brary?’ I say, ‘Yeah, sure!’ They just want to im­merse them­selves in books and sit on the bean­bags.”
