Lily Allen Performed Gig With Diarrhea

Lily AllenLily Allen once performed a gig while suffering from diarrhea.

The Smile singer says despite desperately needing to go to the toilet during a show in Seattle, she still took to the stage — and it was the worst concert experience she has ever endured.

“I came down with diarrhea but I still went on, I was desperate to do a poo the whole way through — at the end of the show I went to the toilet and it would not stop, the crowd were going “Lil-y! Lil-y!” for an encore… I didn’t feel I could send anyone out and say, ‘Will you lot just shut up, she’s having a c**p’, but that was the truth,” she told the November edition of Q magazine.

Meanwhile, Lily has denied she’s retiring from music. The singer had posted a message online declaring that she had no plans to make another record.

The 24-year-old, who has embarked on a high-profile crusade against music piracy, wrote that she could no longer make money from singing — but the comments were later removed.

But her rep said, “Lily is not retiring from music. She is still promoting her current album which is why she said she is not thinking about her next record right now.”
