Swear’s Lily been?


It’s been an incredible turnaround for Lily

Allen since collapsing at Glastonbur­y in 2015.

This year, she performed on Saturday stone cold sober and says the gig has revitalise­d her passion for music so much she is planning to come out of retirement.

Lily said she was “quite emosh” to perform with Olivia Rodrigo, right, who brought her on during her set to sing F*** You to the Supreme Court judges who overturned the historic Roe vs Wade judgment and removed abortion rights in the US after almost 50 years.

The 37-year-old said: “I didn’t know whether I’d be able to get up on a stage like that sober again if I’m honest. A part of me thought it was all in the past.

“Who knows, maybe I won’t hang up my microphone just yet.”

She first quit music in 2009 to turn her attention to acting but returned with a new album.

Earlier this year she starred on the West End stage in the play 2:22 A Ghost Story, to rave reviews. In 2015, paramedics wrapped her in a foil blanket and gave her oxygen at the festival.

She has been sober since 2019, and wed Stranger Things actor David Harbour in 2020. Lily’s performanc­e was taken off the BBC’s iPlayer coverage due to the explicit lyrics. The Beeb said: “The decision to edit this section of the performanc­e was made solely because of the strong language used throughout.”
