Singer hints she may pack it in

Lily Allen has revealed she may quit the music business.

The singer, who recently released her second album It's Not Me, It's You, left a message on blog informing fans that she had no plans to record any new material.

She wrote: "Just so you know, I have not renegotiated my record contract and have no plans to make another record (applause). I do however remain a fan of new music, so this is not some selfish crusade.

“The days of me making money from recording music has been and gone as far as I'm concerned, so I don't (at this point) stand to profit from legislation. Except future purchases of previously recorded material (which wont be much)."

Allen's musical future was called into question when she recently revealed she was switching her attention to acting, and would be performing in a stage production of Neil LaBute's Reasons To Be Pretty.
